Norwich City of Ale 2019

Official Launch Party @ The Waterfront

17:30 - 22:30

City of Ale 2019 launches in style at the Waterfront with dozens of local ales to try and specially brewed guest keg beers and whiskies from Northmaen Brewery arriving by boat from twinned city Rouen, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of our twinning! In collaboration with Norfolk Brewhouse, they're recreating the journey of the Caen stone that built both Norwich Cathedral and Castle over nine centuries ago.

Norfolk & Norwich CAMRA are manning the gravity bar, there's a Northmaen/Moon Gazer craft beer bar, Golden Star Morris are dancing and doing dangerous things with sticks, there's a live band and Wood Fired Food Co pizzas! Join publicans, brewers, CAMRA folk, Norwich City Hosts, City of Ale organisers, beer writers and beer lovers from near and far for a celebration of fine ale in the fine city. Beer there!

Live music by The Naked Lights 

Performing a mix of covers and originals, they always deliver a floor filing party set. 

£10 in advance (£12 on the door) to include three free pints. All pints on gravity just £3.
