Brewery Tours

BREWERY TOURS UPDATE

Due to the on-going Covid-19 situation we have had to take the difficult decision to restrict access to the production areas of the brewery until Wednesday 18 August 2021. All tours will resume as normal from Thursday 19 August 2021.
 
Please note all Friday Ale Sampler Suppers and Saturday tours remain unaffected.
 
Our priority remains to protect our staff, and ensure the continued production of our fine ales and lagers.
 
We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause, and look forward to welcoming you to visit brewery very soon.

DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF BRITAIN’S OLDEST BREWER

IN LIGHT OF THE GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCEMENT ON MONDAY JUNE 14, OUR BREWERY TOURS WILL NOW RECOMMENCE AFTER 19 JULY.

Our award-winning guided tour takes visitors around the Faversham Brewery site to learn about the ancient art of brewing. See brewing and fermentation vessels; taste natural mineral water from the brewery’s well; try some malted barley and smell locally-grown Kentish hops. The 80 minute tour also includes a visit to the Old Brewery Store, housed in the old wines and spirits store, which features impressive displays of historic delivery vehicles, a recreated coopers’ workshop, bygone pub signs and a collection of hop picking memorabilia. It ends back in the Visitor Centre with a tutored tasting of Shepherd Neame’s Kentish ales and speciality lagers, before visitors have the chance to visit the Brewery Shop and pick up a souvenir, gift or some of their favourite beer.
