Jo C Brewery will have three beers at this years festival

| March 9, 2015

JoCs-Norfolk-Ale-a-bird-brewing-beerTucked away in rural north Norfolk, The Old Store on the Barsham Estate near Fakenham is home to Jo C's Norfolk Ale (pronounced Josie's). Brewing was traditionally a woman's job carried out by 'alewives' or 'brewsters', and it was these ladies who inspired me to start my own brewery.

North Norfolk is renowned for its real ale and the area provides some of the best malting barley in the world due to its soil and cimate. The brewery is supplied by its own bore hole and uses Maris Otter barley grown in neighbouring fields which is malted at the nearby Crisp Maltings. In short, it's the perfect location for brewing proper Norfolk real ale.  To find out more about the "Bird that Brews" click here.
