Do you know of a city which actively shouts its prowess from the rooftops when comes to beer? No? Me neither. Well, not in the way that Norwich does. Yes, this glorious city isn’t just famous for giving birth to Alan Partridge, you know!!

Norwich is having another City of Ale celebration from the 23rd May to the 2nd June where the whole city rejoices in its beer heritage, microbreweries, pubs and suppliers over ten days by asking locals and tourists to come and join in the fun and entertainment along the way in what’s a full-blown appreciation of Britain’s National Drink, beer. I’ve never been before but I’ve been lucky enough to be invited over for the launch party by the City of Ale team and Visit Norfolk. They aren’t silly these lot: they’re putting me to work too….. I’m thrilled say I’ll be be hosting a Ladies Only beer-and-food matching event on the launch weekend, along with some local female brewers and pub landladies! Wanna know more about all the brilliant goings-on? Keeping reading…
