Adnams Southwold Bitter  3.7%

A classic cask bitter: originally called Adnams Best Bitter.

A beautiful copper-coloured beer, brewed with locally sourced Pale Ale malted barley and hopped with Fuggles hops.
Great with roast meats and fish cooked in batter, we use it in our braised beef dishes.

Adnams Broadside  4.7%

Brewed to commemorate the Battle of Sole Bay, fought against the Dutch Republic in 1672 off the coast of Southwold.

A dark, ruby red beer rich in fruitcake falvours, it has a wonderful balance of malt and hop flavours. Made with Pale Ale malt and First Gold hops which add orange marmalade flavours. It’s a great ingredient. Adnams use it in their mustards, chutney and marmalade. We recommend it with stews, steak, game, sausages and cheese boards.

Adnams Ghost Ship 4.5%

A bottled and draught beer inspired by one of Adnams’ most haunted pubs – the Walberswick Bell.

Brewed with a selection of malts – Pale Ale, Rye Crystal and Cara – and a blend of American hop varieties to create some great citrus flavours. Great with Thai and Indian food.

Spindrift 4.0%

A golden craft beer that takes its name from the spray which comes off breaking waves

Full of flavour with refreshing citrus taste and orange peel aromas. Brewed from a blend of East Anglian malted barley, Boadicea hops and high grade wheat. A good all rounder – great with any traditional or spicy based cuisines.
