New Hindringham brewery to debut its newest ale at Aylsham Beer Festival

A new Norfolk brewery will be giving a debut to one of its first ales at next month's Aylsham Beer Festival.

Moon Gazer Golden Ale, from The Norfolk Brewhouse at Hindringham, will be one of the star attractions for real ale buffs at the festival, which in 2011 attracted 550 people and raised more than �6,000 for a clutch of charities.

The festival, organised by Aylsham Round Table, will be held at the Old Cinema on Cawston Road from 6pm to midnight on Friday April 13 and from 11am to midnight on Saturday April 14.

A �12 ticket buys three pints and a souvenir glass, while there will be 35 Norfolk ales, five guest ales and 10 ciders to choose from. There will also be live entertainment and food.

Aylsham Round Table chairman James Marks said he was hoping for more people than ever to visit this year's festival. He said last year's money had gone towards:

The Norfolk Brewhouse is owned and run by Rachel and David Holliday, who have set up the brewery in a redundant barn on the family farm.

The brewery uses chalk-filtered water from its own well and Norfolk's finest malting barley.

Mr Holliday said he was thrilled to be debuting the beer at the Aylsham festival. He said: 'As our name suggests, we are very much about producing beer in Norfolk, for Norfolk, and to have a festival pretty much on our doorstep so soon after opening is a great opportunity to showcase our beers, and also help the Round Table raise some money.'

He added: 'We are very much looking forward to visiting the festival and chatting to visiting customers about our beer.'
