Bishops Finger’s packaging was given a makeover in November 2013 but retained its ecclesiastical purple, gold, black and white colour scheme.
Unusually, the European Union has issued a Protective Geographic Indicator meaning that Bishops Finger is the only British beer entitled to be sold under the descriptor ‘Kentish strong ale’.
