Visit our Brewery Bars in St Andrew’s Hall to try their selection of locally brewed beers, and chat with the brewery staff themselves about what makes their brews stand out.
We’re pleased that Lacons Brewery will be returning this year with their popular bar, alongside the Norfolk Brewhouse who have teamed up with H Banham Ltd to present the Maris Otter Bar.
Maris Otter Bar
Championing a champion malt
Norfolk is home to the world’s premium malting barley – Maris Otter, with malt grown in the county exported to over 20 countries around the world.
The Norfolk Brewhouse has teamed up with H Banham Ltd – the guardian of the Maris Otter grain – to bring you a brewery bar allowing you to taste what makes Norfolk malt, its growers, maltsters and brewers so very special.
The new beers on offer, all brewed with Maris Otter, will include collaboration brews with growers and maltsters, as well as an imported ale to demonstrate the global appeal of the malt.
Lacons Brewery is thrilled to be returning to the 2019 CAMRA Winter Beer Festival, showcasing a selection of our multi-award winning ales including our flagship Encore, noted as one of Roger Protz’s ‘Ten of the Best’ beers in the 2018 edition of CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide.
Established in 1760 within Great Yarmouth’s medieval walls, Lacons gained much acclaim for its beers and had a tied public house estate of over 400 outlets in East Anglia and London. Sadly, Lacons was unable to fend off a corporate buyout that almost closed the brewery forever during the late 1960s.
Returning to brew in 2013 at the Falcon Brewery, we craft our ales using Lacons original yeasts that give us a unique link to our rich heritage. During this short time, we have been recognised with a half-century of awards including Overall Cask Champion at the International Brewing Awards – “The Oscars of Beer’ alongside numerous other regional, national and international honours.
Lacons ales are proudly still crafted by hand with the finest whole cone hops, sourced from around the world and Maris Otter malt from Norfolk.
Lacons. It’s about time.
