Whitstable Bay — from Shepherd Neame — is inviting drinkers to take part in an interactive art trail around the Kent coast and claim exclusive rewards as part of its Inspired by Creativity campaign.
Named after the popular coastal town, Whitstable Bay has teamed up with an anonymous local street artist, known as ‘Catman’, to bring to life the spirit of Whitstable. Catman, who has gained international acclaim with his bold, thought-provoking works, has created five characters that depict the unique culture of the town.
His original artworks are on display in five Shepherd Neame coastal pubs and hotels, situated in some of Kent’s most beautiful locations. These are: The Marine Hotel, Tankerton; Botany Bay Hotel, Broadstairs; The Minnis Bay Bar and Brasserie, Birchington; The Royal Hotel, Deal; and The Royal Albion Hotel, Broadstairs.
A new interactive trail invites customers to track down the five designs, scanning the QR codes on the accompanying plaques. Once three codes have been collected, a free limited edition Catman artwork pint glass and pint can be claimed. Five exclusive Whitstable Bay and Catman glasses are available now, each featuring one of the designs and a collector’s mark of authenticity.
Brand marketing manager, Louise Buet, said: “We are excited about launching the next chapter of Inspired by Creativity which we hope will encourage more people to discover Whitstable’s distinctive community and culture, while enjoying our award-winning Whitstable Bay beers.”

The exclusive glasses are also available to purchase, along with limited edition branded paddleboards, clothing, and stationery items created for the campaign, from Shepherd Neame’s brewery shop in Faversham and online shop.
