Craft beer lovers could soon be able to enjoy a taste of their favourite drink at a Norwich market stall.
Sir Toby’s Beers, which is based at Norwich market, has lodged a bid with Norwich City Council for an alcohol licence which would enable it to serve beers to customers on-site.
Currently, it has an off licence, meaning it can sell alcohol to be consumed off the premises.
Its current licensing hours would remain the same, and the team at the double stall said they hope to offer a place for people to enjoy some of their favourite craft beers.
Meanwhile, a café in west Norwich has also lodged plans to serve alcohol.
Rasa’s Café, at 31 Earlham West Centre in Norwich, has submitted an application to Norwich City Council for a premises licence.
Rasa Varanauskiene, the applicant, said in the bid, which is published on the city council’s website, that security would be hired at particularly busy times.
The café would be selling a “small amount of alcohol”, including beer, wine, champagne, cider and cocktails, it says.
