Britain's Oldest Brewer Shepherd Neame Creates Special Ale To Celebrate Queen's Platinum Jubilee

Independent family brewer Shepherd Neame is brewing a limited edition Celebration Ale to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The bespoke English ale (4.8% ABV) will be available on draught at a selection of its pubs throughout Kent, London and the South East during the extended Jubilee bank holiday weekend (Thursday, 2 June – Sunday, 5 June).

Crafted by Shepherd Neame’s Master Brewers using the best of British barley, Celebration Ale boasts light caramel notes and a deep golden hue. Local East Kent Goldings hops add a spiciness to the citrus and fruit aromas, balanced with subtle bitterness from a generous hopping of Kentish Challenger.

Shepherd Neame has a long association with the Royal family, holding Royal Warrants for its Grants Morella Cherry Brandy and flagship Spitfire Amber Ale.

Chief Executive Jonathan Neame said: “We have always supported the Queen’s Jubilees with a special beer, and are delighted to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee with this Celebration Ale. We hope that our customers will enjoy raising a glass to toast this very special occasion!”
