The iconic hop gardens of Kent surround our Faversham Brewery, inspiring our brewers to create award-winning, distinctive beer.
If you're looking for cask, keg or bottled ales, whether using traditional or perhaps more unusual ingredients, we have something that will intrigue and delight in equal measure.
Master Brew is brewed using only the finest Kentish barley and hops and is Shepherd Neame's flagship beer in the brewery's Kentish heartland.
The "Local Hero" is a distinctive, mid-brown bitter ale, with all the hoppy aroma you would expect of a beer brewed in the heart of the hop country.
Hand-crafted by the Faversham brewery's talented team of experienced brewers, it is a well-balanced traditional ale.
Spitfire Amber Kentish Ale was first brewed in 1990 to commemorate the Battle of Britain which was fought in the skies above Kent 50 years earlier and is one of the leading ales in the UK.
Spitfire Gold was launched to mark the 75th anniversary and Spitfire Lager, the Lager of Britain, was launched in 2016 to complete the family.
Perhaps best known for our traditional Kentish ales, we also brew a number of international lagers on licence including leading US craft beer Samuel Adams Boston Lager, and Dutch classic Oranjeboom.
We also continue to invest in expanding our own portfolio. Recent introductions have included Cinque Five Grain Lager and Spitfire Lager, along with our popular Whitstable Bay Blonde Lager.
Orchard View Apple Cider
Orchard View is a collaboration between Britain’s oldest brewer and oldest family-owned cidermaker, Aspall, whose expert craftsmanship has been refined over centuries and handed down through generations.
Clear mid golden in colour, Orchard View Apple Cider is lightly sparkling with a fresh bittersweet apple aroma and characteristic smoky cedar wood notes.
Whitstable Bay Collection
Hailing from the Faversham Steam Brewery, this range of zesty, fruity beers is brewed with hops from across the world to give a true taste of 21st century brewing at its best.
It is named in honour of the hugely popular coastal town of Whitstable, which is renowned for its bohemian vibe and fresh seafood.
Bishops Finger Kentish Strong Ale is a connoisseur's beer with excellent credentials and pedigree and is a silver medal-winner in the Daily Telegraph Taste of Britain awards.
It takes its name from the finger-shaped signposts which pointed pilgrims on their way to the tomb of Thomas a Becket in Canterbury and was the first strong ale to be brewed by Shepherd Neame after malt rationing was eased in the late 1950s. It is also one of the UK's oldest bottled beers, brewed since 1958.
Our brewers have blended barley, rye, wheat, maize and rice with Strisselspalt hops to produce this clean, superior tasting, high-quality lager.
Cinque’s name derives from the Norman-French word meaning five (pronounced ‘sink’) and pays tribute to Shepherd Neame’s home town of Faversham, a member of the confederation of Cinque Ports.
