A beer created by a south Norfolk brewery has been named the best in the region.
The draught porter beer, Slate, created by the Grain brewery in Alburgh has been named overall gold Champion Beer of East Anglia 2018 by CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale.
The silver award was handed to Colchester Brewery for its speciality Brazilian Coffee and Vanilla Porter, while Green Jack of Lowestoft scooped bronze for its Ripper Tripel draught barley wine.
The trio will go forward for consideration in the national round of the CAMRA contest.
Paul Moorhouse, one of the CAMRA volunteers who organised the region's awards, said: 'I am delighted that Grain brewery has won the overall gold medal with its Slate porter. Porters and other dark beers are increasingly popular these days and this beer is a delight.'
