University of East Anglia students get a taste for Norfolk’s real ales
Students at the University of East Anglia are getting a taste of Norfolk's real ales.
Woodforde's Norfolk Ales, based in Woodbastwick, has produced Union Ale especially for the UEA Students' Union Bar.
The 4.1pc ale uses Norfolk-grown Maris Otter malted barley.
Sharon Chatten, marketing manager of Woodforde's, said: 'With brews such as Wherry and Nelson's Revenge, we're passionate about producing beers with a relevance to our home county.
'The recipe for Union Ale has been developed for the students, many of whom come from outside of Norfolk, to showcase local produce and encourage their support to 'buy local' while they study, live and work within our county.'
This follows recent statistics that, for the second year running, show an increase in the number of 18 to 24-year-olds drinking ale.
