Sir John Arderne Wetherspoons, Newark, hope to brew up a success story with new 1646 beer

A Newark beer has been launched at the Sir John Arderne Wetherspoons pub in the town.

The beer, which is an ode to the surrender of King Charles I near Newark, was named 1646 with the slogan Trust In God And Sally Forth.

The slogan was said by the mayor to Lord Belasyse, the town’s governor, when King Charles I ordered the town to surrender on May 6, 1646. The mayor believed the town could fight on.

The beer, brewed by The Pheasantry Brewery, East Markham, is a Ringneck amber ale.

During the beer launch, customers were treated to free samples and snacks.

The manager of the Sir John Arderne Wetherspoons, in Newark Market Place, Mr Mark Froggatt, said it was good for the town to have its own brew.

He said: “The launch went really well. We sold the whole barrel.

“We had Tracy from Pheastantry Brewery and Stuart from Newark CAMRA.

“It’s going to be in the pub permanently and hopefully in other pubs around Newark.”
