Shepherd Neame Brewery

17 Court Street, Faversham, Kent, ME13 7AX

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.

Please note you have to be 18 years and over to participate in a brewery tour.
