Southwold Bitter

Southwold Bitter

Synonymous with pub firesides, fresh sea air and the distant sound of crashing waves, our bitter and our hometown are so intertwined that a call of, ‘Southwold,’ sings out from every bar. Its branding depicts local icon, Southwold Jack, highlighting our sense of place. This small wooden figure stands guard on the brewery wall and is based on an original ‘Clock Jack’, in nearby St Edmunds Church. Brewed with local barley from Holkham in North Norfolk, Southwold also receives a late dose of Fuggles hops. First sold commercially in 1871 in Kent, the year before Adnams was founded, Fuggles are revered as the classic English aroma hop. Their careful selection has helped us maintain continuity over the years. Another enduring element is our in-house yeast, which we’ve used since the 1940s. It makes a beer uniquely Adnams, and breathes life, as well as flavour into Southwold.
Southwold Bitter
  • The Telegraph

    A gentle pairing for flatbreads, with not too strong New World hop character, but something to pull forward that nutty buckwheat taste. The light, grassy aroma from English Fuggles hops will elevate the flavours while refreshing your palate.

Description

Southwold Bitter is authentic and full of character, just like its namesake – our hometown on the Suffolk coast. Copper-coloured and late-hopped with Fuggles, its distinctive, thirst-quenching, herbal hoppiness provides a genuine English bitter experience.

How does it taste

Biscuity malts and light caramelised toffee notes balance the classic English hop character from the addition of Fuggles hops. They are added late in the brewing process, to maintain their wonderful grassy, almost minty, herbal aromas and provide a long, lingering, resinous hoppiness on the palate.

Southwold Bitter

The Southwold Bitter is really good. I’m only two bottles into the twelve that was ordered. I will definitely be ordering again.
