Shepherd Neame is an independent family brewery and pub operator. Dating back at least 500 years, it is Britain's oldest brewer and still creates its range of Kentish ales and award-winning lagers using traditional methods with 100% natural ingredients; chalk-filtered mineral water from the artesian well deep below its site, the finest malting barley and Kentish hops.
Its beer portfolio includes the award-winning Spitfire Premium Kentish Ale and the new Spitfire Gold, Bishops Finger Kentish Strong Ale and the newly rebranded Master Brew. More recent introductions include the contemporary Whitstable Bay Collection, comprising Pale Ale, Blonde Lager, Organic Ale and Oyster Stout, and a new collection of limited edition No.18 Yard Brewhouse beers, named after its historic cask store. It also brews a number of high quality international lagers on licence including Asahi, Samuel Adams and Oranjeboom.
It is conveniently accessed by both road and rail, and is approximately 80 minutes from London, just off junction 6 of the M2. The nearest train station is approximately a 10 minute walk. The brewery doesn’t have any designated parking spaces, but Faversham’s Central Car Park and Partridge Lane Car Park are both a five minute walk away.
