Mad Jack Ha’ (or Mad Jack Hall) is our session IPA, a little moreish 3.8%er with Mosaic hops. We made a Christmas delivery to this lovely lady, Hazel last week. Was amazed to find out that she’s a descendant of Mad Jack himself!
MJH was born a couple of miles from the brewery at Otterburn Hall (now Otterburn Castle), he was a Justice of Peace in Northumberland, a Jacobite leader and a major figure in the Jacobite rising of 1715 (for which he was beheaded, or hung, drawn and quartered according to some accounts – poor chap!).
Next time you order a pint raise your glass to the fiery and energetic Mad Jack and for standing up for what you believe in.
