Hopefully a lot of you are already familiar with our Little Jack beer. This pale ale is one of our core range of beers and one of the most popular things we brew. However now, it is not the only Little Jack on the block! We're very pleased to introduce you all to the latest member of the Old Sawley Brewing Company family. This is Little Jack, our beautiful racehorse.
He is newly owned by the lovely folk who own our brewery and The White Lion, Sawley. We're all absolutely smitten with him. And who can blame us, he is absolutely incredible!
Little Jack will be racing in brewery colours, taking inspiration from our burgundy colourway. He will be in cream & maroon quarters, with a cream cap for the jockey with a maroon star on top & hooped sleeves. We're not sure when he'll be ready for a race meeting yet, but we'll keep you all posted. Customers of The White Lion who want to come and see him in action are welcome to put their email address on the list behind the bar. However, the first 8 badges will be prioritised for our team here at the pub and brewery.
If you're unfamiliar with Little Jack, allow us to describe it for you. It is a crisp, refreshing pale ale with a fruity citrus taste from a unique blend of four American hops. These hops are Amarillo, Citra, Simcoe, Cascade. Our Little Jack ale comes out at a sessionable 4.3% ABV and is always available on the bar at The White Lion, as well as making its way around our network of friendly free-houses around the East Midlands.
We'll keep you up to date with Little Jack's progress on our social media pages as well as on this website, so make sure you are following us on Twitter and Facebook. You can also find out more about the rest of our core range of beers on the Beers page of this website.
