During the month of October we have been working with our local African and Caribbean community helping to promote and support them as local businesses, musicians, artisits and creatives. Every Sunday we have a different street food trader booked in showcasing foods from all over African and the Caribbean.
We have been working with Sefo Kanuteh a master Kora player from The Gambia now living in Norwich to put on performances and drumming and dancing workshops for the community. We are hoping to raise money for a school in The Gambia to help them buy equipment and are collecting unwanted foodball kits and boots to send out to the children.
If you want to get involved all you have to do is turn up to the taproom, attend performances and workshops and bring some unwanted football bits with you! We hope to see as many people as possible come out and support this effort.
The annual Norwich Art Car Boot event is hosted by Print to the People and held at the Brewery. Previous events have attracted over 3000 visitors all descending upon the brewery to enjoy and celebrate the work of talented artists and musicians. There are plenty of food stalls and obviously lots of beer – this is a much loved community event. Print to the People are an artist led social enterprise dedicated to the production and promotion of traditional printmaking processes.
A date for 2019 has yet to be announced but keep watching this space!

We’re super excited that Brick Pizza have set up residency with us at the brewery taproom. These guys are smashing it right now in Norwich, they don’t just make any pizza, but only pizza – they do one thing and they do it right! They have a vegan option but unfortunately not a gluten free option as cross contamination is too risky in their small kitchen.

Margherita – tomato, mozzarella, basil
Pepperoni – tomato, mozzarella, salami ventricina
