Norwich Beer Festival 2016

Last week Norwich played host to its 39th annual Beer Festival which is organised each year by the local branch of  CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) and held in the fantastic setting of the Grade I listed St Andrew’s Hall.

On Friday night the Beer festival opened its doors at 5:30pm but prospective festival goers had already begun to queue, in true British fashion, around the entire length of the building, snaking off into the distance along St George’s Street and finally ending somewhere near the Playhouse bar.

In years gone by I’ve queued on a cold, drizzly evening to gain entrance to the hubbub of the festival but thankfully this weekend myself and the several hundred other real-ale-appreciators were treated to some sumptuous autumnal hues across the cityscape before finally reaching the holy grail of the beer-filled hall and its brimming cloisters.
