The Brewery: “Welcome to the Green Jack Brewing Company website. Green Jack was founded in 1993 by Tim Dunford, we are a multi-award winning traditional real ale brewery based in Lowestoft in Suffolk. From humble beginnings Green Jack has now grown into one of the largest real ale breweries in East Anglia. In 2009 we built a new 38 barrel brew house in an old smoke house in the heart of historic Lowestoft.”

The Beer: “…is very traditional in style, even though it is brewed with American hops. A deep amber coloured ale, Gone Fishing is fruity and malty - it goes down far too easily for a beer of this strength.”

Oh wow. How I loved this - and their description is perfect. Despite it’s strength it was VERY easy drinking. A fantastic pint that was brewed just up the road from where I was at the time. Worth a shout out too is the Sailor’s Home pub for supporting local smaller breweries - and giving us the chance to sample their wares. 5.5% A.B.V.
