Norwich Bear Brewing Co - brand new brewery for Norwich!

Contact: Kevin Hopkins 07525162738

Set up by Kevin and Dawn Hopkins and ably assisted by the brewing talents of Carlos Branquinho, the Norwich Bear Brewing Co has been launched to brew bespoke real ales exclusively for The Ketts Tavern, 29 Ketts Hill, and The Rose, 235 Queens Rd, both in Norwich and owned by Kevin and Dawn.

Phase 1 has been to produce 3 cask ales - ‘Classic’ a 3.8% refreshing golden ale, ‘Legend’ a 4.3% copper-coloured fruity beer and ‘Platinum Blonde’ a 5% full flavoured hoppy ale.

Phase 2 will take a little longer - a refurb of The Rose to include a small brewery (1.5 - 2 barrel) to indulge in some 'extreme brewing' - small batches of unusual, individual and distinctive beers to be mainly bottled - guest brewers and enthusiastic amateurs are welcome to become involved!

Both pubs will become 'Beer Emporiums' and will exclusively sell these beers plus bottled beers from Belgium, Germany, USA and anywhere else offering exciting and different brews. Phase 2 is expected to be completed later this year.

'Classic' and 'Legend' will be on sale for the very first time this Saturday (21st August) - from 11am at The Rose and from 5pm at The Ketts Tavern.

For further information please contact Kevin or Dawn at The Ketts on 01603 449654. End
