About Us

Green Jack was founded in 1993 by Tim Dunford, we are a multi-award winning traditional real ale brewery based in Lowestoft, 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. This enabled Green Jack to produce significantly improved volumes of our award-winning real ales. Green Jack real ales and stouts are now available nationwide and online via our Real Ale Shop. Green Jack beers are known for their subtle balance of sugars, malt and hops, we produce beers of our own design along with a contemporary take on traditional English beer styles.

At Green Jack, we brew champion, award-winning ales and have won over 100 awards at independent CAMRA and SIBA beer festivals. In 2006 Ripper was crowned CAMRA Supreme Champion Winter Beer of Great Britain and awarded Gold for Overall Champion at the National Winter Ale Festival 2018. In 2012 Trawlerboys was crowned the Champion Best Bitter of Great Britain and was the overall runner-up at the Great British Beer Festival.

We produce a permanent range of 10 core beers plus a number of seasonal and one-off specials that are available at different times throughout the year, details of which you can find on our website. We deliver directly into Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex, where we wholesale out our own beers alongside guest ales from some of the best brewery's in the UK, plus bag-in-box ciders sourced from around the country.
