About Shepherd Neame

Shepherd Neame is Britain's oldest brewer - and while 1698 is the Brewery's official founding date, there is clear evidence that its heritage pre-dates even this period. Today, Shepherd Neame is Britain’s largest independent family brewer, producing 50 million pints annually, and exporting to more than 35 countries. Shepherd Neame boasts an award-winning visitor centre and more than 300 pubs and hotels throughout London and the South East, from the historic heart of the City to the Kent coastline.
