Learn how to make top class beer at home
Welcome to Norwich Amateur Brewers - the most dedicated Beer Brewing Club around. Here you will find the latest updates, events and so much more. We’re based in Norwich in Norfolk, but are always looking to grow our community and interact with other amateur brewers in the UK. Feel free to explore the site and join our fun and vibrant community!
Thriving in lockdown
The club have enjoyed some fantastic experiences and enlightening talks from experts in their field who’ve been willing to dedicate some time with the club in online video chats; we had a superb discussion (and enjoyed Ghost Ship tasting) with Adnams Head Brewer, Fergus Fitzgerald and got into the science of hops with Rob Shieldon of Lupofresh hop merchants. Another highlight was hearing from one-time club member Mike Deal on his journey to commercial brewing as founder and Head Brewer at Wildcraft in Buxton. These sessions have been a great boost at times when we’ve been unable to meet in person.
Tests and technical
One of the cornerstones of our club is sharing beer that we’ve brewed, giving and receiving feedback while we taste it; we were really keen to keep this going during lockdown. Some strong organisation and dedication, along with strict sanitation procedures, allowed us to distribute our beers to club members at home; we then ran online tasting and feedback sessions remotely online. It was hugely successful, and even spawned a ‘design the most creative label’ challenge as part of the fun.
It may be some time before we can all get together as we once did, so we’ll continue to develop new ways to enjoy our passion for brewing together.
