THE PER­FECT PINT

EDP Norfolk - - NORFOLK CHRISTMAS - nor­folk­brew­house.co.uk

we are lucky to have a huge choice of ex­cel­lent lo­cal beers to sam­ple – cov­er­ing pretty much ev­ery taste. At The Nor­folk Brew­house at Hin­dring­ham, which won the Field to Fork award, spon­sored by Eas­ton and Ot­ley Col­lege, their pas­sion for beer has seen them win count­less awards.

Owner David Hol­l­i­day says Christ­mas is the per­fect time to try some dif­fer­ent lo­cal beers, many of which have rich, deep flavours which make an ideal match with fes­tive foods.

“All of our Moon Gazer beers use Nor­folk Maris Ot­ter bar­ley so you can en­joy a true taste of Nor­folk this Christ­mas. For that pre-lunch tip­ple we would sug­gest some­thing light, such as DewHop­per Nor­folk Lager, which has a re­fresh­ing cit­rus aroma and flavour and its light, dry, crisp­ness will stim­u­late the palate with­out be­ing over­pow­er­ing. As for the main event we would al­ways sug­gest an ale. Moon Gazer Nor­folk Pale Ale is an am­ber-coloured bit­ter with a fruit hop­pi­ness but also a malty back­bone which will com­ple­ment the tur­key per­fectly.

“As the evening pro­gresses and it’s time for cheese in front of the fire, choose a rich, com­plex dark beer. Moon Gazer Win­ter Porter uses choco­late malts along with co­rian­der and orange to of­fer an ar­ray of flavours to de­light the palate – it’s an ale which will com­ple­ment cheeses as per­fectly as a good port.”
