Welcome to the Norwich Amateur Brewers Festival, the festival with a difference. Why different? Because every festival you have ever been to has commercially made beer. The beer at our festival is all brewed by amateurs but to professional standards.
The explosion in breweries in this country in the last 10 years has overwhelmingly been driven by amateurs, brewing beer so good everyone tasting it has said “You ought to sell this!”
3 of our members have done just this in Norfolk. You may have heard of Woodfordes, All Day Brewing and TheWildcraft Brewery . All the beers you will try have been made using what is commonly known as the All Grain Method. This is how a commercial brewery operates; they just have bigger pots!
Our festival aims to showcase how good brewing at a very small scale can be and to support the excellent work of The East Anglian Air Ambulance.
At the festival you will be provided with a ticket on which appears 12 “tokens”. Each token entitles you to a 1/3rd of a pint to get an idea of what each brewer intended. We are also providing some free tasters of beers made from kits just to show how good they are these days and how easy it is to brew yourself.
You will have the chance to rate the beers you taste and enter your score sheet into a free prize draw. Top prize is everything you need to brew 40 pints of Beer (worth £100).
But that’s not all. CAMRA are supporting the event by hosting 3 sessions on Beer Appreciation using the festival beers as examples.
Our host is the Coachmakers landlord, Roy Cole. They have lined up a tasty Buffet to sustain you through the day.
Beer and music always go well together and the Norwich Ukeleles will play to us during the afternoon.
We only have 83 tickets left for this very special event so get yours before they go. Don’t be the person who has to constantly listen to friends banging on about you missing out and what a great time everyone had.

Our crew comprises specialist pre-hospital doctors and critical-care paramedics, operating out of two high-tech helicopters from 07:00 until 19:00 from our Norwich base and from 07:00 until 01:30 from our Cambridge base. We were the first air ambulance in the country to attend helicopter emergency medical incidents in the hours of darkness to unknown and unlit sites.
