Shepherd Neame

Britain’s oldest brewer Shepherd Neame has been based in Faversham for over 300 years. Perhaps best known for traditional Kentish ales such as Spitfire, which carries the Royal Warrant, its diverse portfolio includes Five Grain Lager, Bear Island East Coast Pale Ale, and the Whitstable Bay Collection. It also brews international lagers under licence including Samuel Adams Boston Lager.

The 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 beer tasting, before visitors have the chance to visit the Brewery Shop and pick up a souvenir, gift or some of their favourite beer.
