Beer lovers in Norwich have attended a beer appreciation course designed to give them the skills to judge beers at competitions and events.

Hosted by The Beehive pub in Leopold Road, Norwich, the course was lead by Alan Edwards and attended by Norwich and Norfolk Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) members.

Giving participants the skills to be able to judge beers at competition level, the course involved tasting six different Norfolk beers and then compiling tasting notes.

Those who passed the course were Dee Leybourne-Edwards, Roy Edwards, Chris Wickens, Damian Lofthouse, Sheila McGinley, Steve Turner, Oli Fernandez, Hilary Goreham, Peter Goreham, Matt Sladen, Andrew Smith and Michelle Royall.

Alan Edwards said: 'It is a busy year for Norwich and Norfolk CAMRA with the annual Norwich Beer festival in October and the Great British Beer Festival Winter in February. Now is a good time to join in the activities and campaigns to protect local ale, cider, perries and of course pubs.'
