Final preparations are under way for this week’s Great British Beer Festival Winter, which is being staged in Norwich for the final time after a three-year run.
In the main St Andrew’s Hall, there is every style of beer, starting with the subtle flavours of the golden ales, like the Hambleton Raspberry Blonde Ale or Lees Golden, with light toffee sweetness and fruit-hop finish. Or try the berry and citrus IPAs, and maybe Oakham’s Dragon In Bavaria, with tangerine, citrus, and hints of rose. The dark beer selection is equally exciting, with High Weald’s Charcoal Burner, or Little Valley’s Stout with orange aroma.
Take time to find out what the cider bar has to offer. Rated from very sweet to very dry, you can find the perfect ciders and perries for your palette. If you like something sweet, try the fruit beers in the World Beer Bar.
Take a look in Blackfriars Hall to discover who won the 2019 Champion Winter Beer of Britain and sample winners and finalists. Select from a wonderful range of sweet winter beers, like the Winter’s Vanilla Latte, or Boudicca’s Prasto’s Porter. There are Lacons and Norfolk Brewhouse brewery bars, too.
