Booze: Dragon Hall Beer Festival 2012





I'm pleased to let you all know that I have the final beer lists for Dragon Hall Beer Festival 2012 and I am going to share them with you! Exciting, I know!









Dragon Hall is a unique Grade 1 listed Medieval trading hall dated at around 1430 on King Street in Norwich. It's a wonderful building.

Last year, Dragon Hall in Norwich hosted their first ever beer festival which I volunteered at. It was a great weekend. We had loads of different beers (Including Dragon's Tipple which was brewed especially for us by Tipples brewery in Acle). It was a celebration of Norfolk beer. It was awesome. I'm so happy that it's back for a second year!

This year is going to be bigger and better as we don't just have beers from Norfolk... oh no... we have managed to source draft beers from Van Steenberge Brewery in Belgium too, as well as other bottled Belgian Beers from Van Steenberge, De Proef, De Gruut, Roman & Bavik!
