Celebrate Cask Ale Week and Kent green hop season with a free* pint of Shepherd Neame cask ale

Independent family brewer Shepherd Neame is inviting drinkers to celebrate Cask Ale Week and Kent Green Hop Season with a free* pint of its cask ale.

Cask Ale Week celebrations kicked off across the country on Thursday (September 21), as pubs and breweries encourage customers to enjoy Britain’s national drink – cask beer.

Kent Green Hop Season also launched on Friday (September 22), inviting drinkers to taste newly released beers made from just-harvested hops produced by over 30 Kent brewers including Shepherd Neame’s limited edition green hop ale Hop Pocket (4.5% ABV).

The Faversham-based brewer is offering a free* pint of its award-winning cask beer to mark both occasions.

All drinkers need to is sign up to the Shepherd Neame database by visiting, and they will receive an email containing a voucher to enjoy a free* pint of one of its award-winning cask ales, including Whitstable Bay Pale Ale, Late Red, Spitfire Amber Ale and Master Brew. Cask ale fans are advised to call ahead to confirm that their favourite cask is available.

Brands Marketing Manager Rose Davis said: “We really wanted to do something special to mark this year’s Cask Ale Week event, and also to encourage drinkers to join in the Kent Green Hop Season celebrations. We are passionate advocates for cask ale, which is why we launched our Cask Club range of experimental, innovative ales back in 2019 to encourage people to enjoy what we believe is one of the best drinks in the world.

“We hope that this offer will prove a great incentive for people to experience and try new beers, and perhaps result in a new found passion for cask!”
