A merry dragon pouring a cask ale has been revealed as the winning logo for the 39th Norwich Beer Festival.
The design for the 2016 edition of the popular event was created by Norwich man Richard Smith, who had entered the competition two times before.
Held at St Andrew's Hall from Monday, October 24 to Saturday, October 29, the festival is hosted by the Norwich and Norfolk branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).
The winning logo will be widely used to promote the festival on souvenir glasses, pin badges and clothing.
'I'm really pleased to have won and it gives me a great excuse to spend even more time at the beer festival this year,' said Mr Smith, a planning consultant who lives in Trafford Road. 'The design was inspired by seeing and enjoying the rows and rows of real ales at the beer festival being served by the volunteers.
