A great way to enjoy some of our Norfolk pubs with the Norwich & District Campaign For Real Ale.
The Norwich Pub Festival launched on Thursday (1st July). For the whole of July, people can tour the pubs in the festival, receive a stamp in their festival guide (collectable from any of the participating pubs) and for each of the 7 colour-coded zones completed they will receive a wristband at the designated final stop. In addition, if you have a drink (of any kind) in all 62 pubs, collect all stamps and wrist bands, a surprise gift will be presented at the Norwich Beer Festival in October.
Participating breweries are supplying pubs with FREE beer and cider as part of the festival, how awesome. Look out for these featured breweries, listed in the guide, when visiting the pubs.
