Britain’s oldest brewer has launched a pop-up store in Bluewater to quench shoppers thirst in the hot weather.

Shepherd Neame has launched the mini-brewery opposite Zara in the Upper Guildhall. It will be open until July 5.

The store includes a bar featuring their first ever cider, Orchard View, and new Cinque Five Grain premium lager.

Jonathan Neame, chief executive of Shepherd Neame, added: “It’s great to have collaborated with Bluewater, an exciting and thriving retail destination in Kent for our pop-up store.

“We have a fantastic line-up of merchandise, our new cider and premium lager, promotions and activities for Bluewater guests. We look forward to welcoming enthusiasts and those curious to learn more about beer and brewing.”

Guests will be able to take a virtual tour of a hop garden through the ‘HOPS360’ virtual reality experience.

This announcement follows the launch of Missguided’s first store outside of London at Bluewater earlier this month.
