Duration Tutored Tasting – Meet The Brewer
The George and Dragon, by Castle Acre is a modern take on an 18th Century West Norfolk pub minutes from the brewery. As part of their beer festival our beers will on the taps this bank holiday and our Brewer Bates is holding a special Tutored Tasting.
An informative laid back Meet The Brewer event on Saturday 24th August 3-4pm is a chance to meet the team, sample our wares and hear about our ethos of beers that belong, connecting brewing back to it’s agricultural roots celebrating Norfolk produce to make wild ales and fresh beers from nature with purpose.
Bates will walk you through small glass pours to sample as he discusses what makes an East and West Coast IPA, why a pilsner is one of the hardest styles to deliver well, and how farmhands would have often had crops in their saisons – with a witbier, packed full of heirloom carrots.
The George has great bar run by Proprietor and Cellar Manager Tiffany Turner. Chef Tiago Rodrigues serves up simple dishes rich in flavour, using seasonal ingredients, in conjunction with Wells’ Deli. Menus are balanced between vegan and vegetarian recipes, alongside burgers, steaks and fish off the grill.
This is a free event with limited numbers – please book a place at the bar 01760 755 623 or email [email protected] to ensure we bring enough samples! If you are want to explore a bit, head to the beach and generally make a weekend of it The Pig Shed Motel has 10 ensuite rooms right next to the pub that serves daily breakfast, lunch and dinner.
