The Bell Hotel, in Norwich, joined forces with 45 pubs throughout the city to celebrate Norwich City of Ale (NCOA) 2012.
The 10-day celebration of pubs, beer, breweries and real ale, based in Norwich, is a locally organised event, supported by Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).
The festival centred on local pubs supplying traditional local ales, with beer from 35 local breweries being served at the participating pubs.
There were also quiz nights, ale trails and even a political debate on pubs and brewing, chaired by BBC East’s David Whiteley and featuring Labour MP Toby Perkins and chief executive of CAMRA Mike Benner.
Mike Loveridge (pictured third left), shift manager at The Bell Hotel, said: “We were very pleased to be involved in the event.
“The chance to be part of one of the UK’s fastest-growing real-ale celebrations really is testament to the hard work and effort from all at The Bell Hotel, to build relations with the local community and CAMRA officials.”
The Bell Hotel stages NCOA meetings, offers discount to CAMRA members and serves up to 14 cask ales at any one time.
