The team behind a brewery set up in the ruins of a 900-year-old Norfolk priory will hold a free tasting event at Norwich market.

Duration Brewing, which is based at Abbey Farm in West Acre, near Swaffham, launched their first two beers earlier this month, Turtles All the Way Down and Bet the Farm.

The first is a 5.5pc American pale ale, and is named after one of founder Derek Bates’ favourite Sturgill Simpson songs, while the 4.5pc hoppy continental pale ale Bet the Farm plays on Duration’s farmhouse and wild brewing focus.

Mr Bates and cofounder Miranda Hudson will be at Norwich market at 3pm on Saturday, October 27.

They will host the free event at Sir Toby’s Beer, unit 182, at the edge of the market opposite the Tesco Metro.
