Three Norfolk breweries picked up prestigious awards at a national event.
Attleborough's Wolf Brewery took home Overall Champion Golds at the SIBA Independent Beer Awards 2018 in Liverpool for Sirius Dog Star.
Georgina Edwards, of Wolf Brewery said: 'A lot of blood sweat and tears goes into that beer so it means a huge amount to win.
'We were aiming for a smooth, dark session beer that is accessible but with huge flavour.'
The Norfolk Brewhouse, based in Hindringham, was judged to have brewed the best craft lager in the Premium Lager category with StubbleStag, and its Blonde IPA took gold in the Premium Bitter and Pale ale category.
