A north Norfolk brewhouse has been shortlisted for the East of England Co-op's Producer of the Year award.
The awards showcase the quality and diversity of more than 140 growers and producers from Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex, who contribute to the Co-op's award-winning Sourced Locally range. David and Rachel Holliday began the Norfolk Brewhouse, in Harvest Lane, in 2012 through their passion for real ale and got involved in Sourced Locally just a year later.
For their Moon Gazer Ales, they use barley grown in Norfolk and malted at Great Ryburgh, just six miles from the brewery, and source all their water from a borehole directly beneath their feet.
Waste grain is fed to the cows and chickens on a neighbouring farm and they have plans to transform some into dog biscuits.
David said: 'The team at Norfolk Brewhouse are thrilled to have been shortlisted for such a prestigious award.

'As a small team we take great pride in our local sourcing of ingredients and sustainable approach to brewing. However, for that dedication to reach the customer you need like-minded retailers and East of England Co-op's Sourced Locally scheme is a great example of how to bring local customers and producers together.
'Good local high quality ingredients are really what gives our beer the X factor – and what can be better than making beers and seeing customers enjoying a product that you make? We were lucky that the East of England Co-op had that faith in us to put us into their stores.'
