Lovely Nelly ABV 3.9% : A superb full-bodied amber bronze session beer- with a biscuit malt flavour balanced with a smooth bitterness from the finest English Fuggles and Golding hops.

Jack the Devil ABV 4.5% : Delicious and rich, a dark chestnut coloured ale made from Maris Otter barley, and the finest English aromatic hops. Perfect balance of malty nuttiness and a fresh hoppy aroma.

On New Years Day, 1861 the Lovely Nelly (a collier brig) ran aground on Whitley Sands in a tumultuous tempest. The Cullercoats fishwives (and probably some horses and men) pulled the lifeboat 2 miles to Whitley Bay, where the lifeboat could be launched in the foul conditions. With waves breaking over half mast high, the lifeboat crew performed a heroic rescue, with all but the poor cabin boy – Thomas Thompson aged 12- being saved. The lifeboat bowman was John Chisholm, whose nickname was Jack the Devil.
