Commemorating 100 years ofThe Suffragette Movement
Alice Hawkins was born in 1863 and was raised in Leicester where she lived for most of her life. Alice was one of nine children and went on to become a very prominent figure in the suffragette movement. Spreading the word for equality all over Leicestershire and speaking at National events in Hyde Park to a staggering 250,000 supporters in her campaign for votes for women, Alice was imprisoned five times during her campaign!
Our bold pale ale beer looks to celebrate Alice’s strong determined character and fighting spirit and to commemorate 100 years of the suffragette movement.
You can find the 7ft bronze statue of Alice Hawkins proudly standing in Leicester's Market Square outside the Knight & Garter pub and read more about Alice's story here.
