Founded 1890 in Suffolk. Beers are available nationwide in Adnams own pubs, in the free trade and as guest ales. Adnams owns 60 odd pubs, mainly in Suffolk but also throughout East Anglia and including one in London (the Bridge House, Tower Bridge). However, not all Adnams pubs stock the full range of beers. The Sole Bay Inn (Southwold) is regarded as the brewery tap.
