Brewed with East Anglian malted barley and hopped with blend of varieties, including Fuggles, which is added late in the boil to preserve the herbal flavours, with more Fuggles used to dry hop each cask.
First brewed in 1967, the packaged version was until recent years called ‘Suffolk Strong Bitter’ and depicted a scene of the brewery on its packaging.
Southwold Bitter bottle labels, and indeed this beer’s pump clip, features Southwold Jack carrying his curved sword, axe and bell. This figurehead is said to represent a young knight from the Wars of the Roses and has long been one of the main images associated with Adnams Brewery.
