SPITFIRE AMBER KENTISH ALE

This 4.2% Kentish ale was first brewed in 1990 to commemorate the Battle of Britain which was fought in the skies above Kent 50 years earlier.

 

The beer is named after the legendary Spitfire aeroplane designed by RJ Mitchell. The versatility of the aircraft and the courage of its pilots were essential to victory and were a key symbol of the spirit of that time.

Our Beers...

CINQUE FIVE GRAIN LAGER

Shepherd Neame is proud to introduce Cinque five grain premium lager.

The name is derived from the Norman-French word meaning five (pronounced ‘sink’) and pays tribute to our home town of Faversham, a member of the confederation of Cinque Ports. The Cinque Ports were established in the 12th century to maintain ships ready to protect the coast from foreign invaders.

Using five grains gives Cinque a complex flavour with a deep and satisfying mouth feel, while the use of aromatic French Strisselpalt hops lends a distinctive refreshing citrus note.

MASTER BREW: THE ORIGINAL KENTISH ALE

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.

WHITSTABLE BAY PALE ALE

Whitstable Bay Pale Ale is designed to suit all palates and offer a light, refreshing taste.

The sweet maltiness balances perfectly with the fresh pine notes provided by the hops added late in the process, to offer a light-coloured, thirst-quenching 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.

ORANJEBOOM

QUIRKILY CONTINENTAL

Oranjeboom is a Dutch classic and was judged the 'best draught lager in the world' at the Brewing Industry International Awards.

D'Orangienboom brewery was founded in Rotterdam in 1671 with Orangeboom lager being brewed from the mid-19th century onwards. The lager takes its name from the orange tree which symbolises the Dutch royal family tree.

 

Oranjeboom continues to be brewed to the same recipe, delivering a fresh, gently hoppy, Continental lager with a soft sparkle and a refreshingly zesty flavour.
