Adnams' Lighthouse beer is named after the Southwold’s Grade II, 102 foot-tall white Lighthouse which stands close to the distillery. Brewed with Pale Ale and Crystal malt, hopped with a blend of Fuggles and Goldings, Adnams developed Lighthouse from the recipe used for their Champion Pale Ale.
This golden ale is named in memory of Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s fated atmospheric system designed to propel trains on the South Devon Railway. Pistons were forced along a pipe sealed by leather valves but this proved an unreliable seal and the system was finally abandoned in September 1848.
A triple hopped pale golden ale, Nun’s Ale is brewed using floor malted barley and whole hops. Church End started in what used to be a coffin workshop, in Warwickshire and has been brewing since August 1994. They have now moved to a bigger premise and upgraded from four barrels per brew to 20.
