609: Green Jack Brewing | Trawlerboys Best Bitter

20190806_170651The 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 a full-bodied, copper coloured, premium bitter brewed with English whole cone hops, rich and malty with fruity hop flavours. The pump clip features the Lowestoft-built stern trawler (1978) the Boston Sea Stallion, launched by none other than Mrs Thatcher….”

Another cracking offering from Green Jack at the excellent Sailors Home pub, just a couple of minutes walk from the White House Beach Caravan & Motorhome Club site where I was staying. Everything I like about a Best Bitter. Well balanced and very moreish. I could have so easily got stuck into this, but at 4.6% A.B.V needs a bit of respect too.
