Southwold Bitter is a beautiful copper-coloured beer, late hopped with Fuggles for a distinctive, lingering hoppiness. Perfectly balanced hops and malt creates a classic session beer, enjoy! Our Bitter pairs with roast meats and fish cooked in batter as the clean bitterness cuts through the slightly fatty notes and hence keeps the palate refreshed.
First brewed in 1967 (under the name Adnams Best Bitter), Southwold Bitter holds our oldest trademark, Southwold Jack. This small wooden figure depicts a young soldier from the 15th Century Wars of the Roses. Some believe he was based on a real man who walked the streets of Southwold, a local boy who fought as an armoured foot soldier for the Duke of York – we may never know. Named ‘Jack the Smiter’ he stands at 4 feet 4 inches tall and is constructed of painted wood. Known as a ‘Clock Jack’, his job is to strike the hours on a church bell with his battle axe.
