Swift Nick is a 3.8% bitter using classic Goldings hops called Swift Nick, named after the infamous 17th century highwayman, John Nevison, whom it was reputed never used violence and once returned a bag of money to a hard-up Bakewell farmer.
Stories of Swift Nick are legend and he is believed to have ridden from the scene of a crime in London to York in just one day, a feat generally attributed to fellow highwayman Dick Turpin. Peak Ales brewers Rob & Deborah chose the name Swift Nick because of the Local Bakewell connection and also because, says Deborah, “It’s perfect for a swift pint!”
