Shepherd Neame creates special ale to celebrate Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Britain's oldest 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 remarked, “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!”
