A Suffolk brewery’s fruit beer will be stocked in 400 supermarket stores across the UK after winning a brewing competition.

Morrisons has awarded St Peter’s Brewery, based at Bungay, a national contract for Plum Porter which started at the end of January.

Steve Magnall, chief executive of St Peter’s Brewery, said: “We are delighted to win this competition and gain a national listing for our new Plum Porter.

“The fact that it was a dark beer that came out on top with Morrisons’ customers proves that tastes are changing.

“Our Plum Porter is a dark, sweet, full-bodied porter with background notes of damson and blackcurrant that are followed by the fruitiness of the plum in flavour and aroma.

“It’s a perfect, warming beer for the winter season and obviously went down very well with Morrisons customers and buyers.”
