"Being two years since we had a City of Ale celebration - what we're hoping is that it'll be as big as it was before.

"We've gone from 10 days to a month and have more pubs participating than ever before - it's all systems go and everything looks fantastic.

"Over the next few days city pubs should be fully adorned with banners, bunting, beer mats and programmes.

"The fact it's a month long now gives customers and guests more of an opportunity to visit Norwich's great diverse pubs and drink the great beer we have on offer - we're all very excited."
