Cask Club

It’s not just the flavours but also the look of Cask Club that takes a fresh approach, with dynamic new designs bringing to life the original stories of Britain’s oldest brewer and its unique Kentish roots. 

Whitstable Bay

This contemporary collection of beers takes its name from the popular coastal town of Whitstable, situated just a short distance from the brewery.

Master Brew

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.

Bishops Finger

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.
