Another classic Lakeland beer, from the recently flood-hit and therefore underwater Jenning’s Brewery in Cockermouth, Cumbria, Sneck Lifter is a deep, dark and rich beer with a coffee flavour and a malty finish.
It’s a warming winter beer, with a potent dark red colour.
Jenning’s make much of the name. A “sneck lifter” is a man’s last sixpence, which he could use to lift the ‘sneck’, or latch on the pub door and buy himself a pint. The last coin, used properly.
Perfect for Christmas.
