Shepherd Neame is a family controlled brewer based in Kent, since 1698 making it Britain’s oldest brewer. The Company brews widely acknowledged premium ales including ‘Spitfire’, ‘Whitstable Bay pale ale’ and ‘Bishops Finger’, as well as internationally renowned lagers such as ‘Asahi Super Dry’ and ‘Samuel Adams Boston Lager from its brewery site in Faversham where around 280 people are employed. These beers are sold through various channels through the South East and nationally and have a growing presence in international markets such as the US and Canada.
The Company owns and operates around 350 quality pubs and hotels throughout the South East of England the majority of which are freehold sites. These pubs are a mixture of 304 tenanted and 46 managed operations where the company’s beer products are sold alongside wine and food and a growing accommodation business that totals around 500 letting rooms. Our pubs employ around 850 people directly and many more indirectly through tenancy and are important assets in their local communities.
