Nominated are the Norfolk Brewhouse - who claim to love Norfolk so much they put the county name on every bottle – along with Woodforde's - Norfolk's largest brewery, who already boast 133 awards for their beer.

The pair are two of six finalists from across the East – joining two companies from Essex and two from Suffolk who are also vying for public votes.

Roger Grosvenor, joint chief executive at the East of England Co-op, said: 'This will be a fascinating contest between two of Norfolk's most interesting beer producers. It will be a difficult decision to make but we are asking the public to pick just one of these incredible businesses to represent their county.

'The awards are a celebration of produce from across East Anglia – a region which is home to some of the most diverse and exciting products in the UK.'
