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.

Construction of Southwold Lighthouse began in 1887 to replace three local lighthouses, which were under threat from erosion at Orfordness. Completed in 1889 the lighthouse has since protected shipping negotiating sand banks in the Sole Bay and the entrance to Southwold harbour.

In July 2014, Adnams celebrated the 500th Anniversary of Trinity House with a special limited-edition neck label.
