Other activities include a back to beer basics with venues acting as ingredient hubs (malt, hops, water, yeast, adjuncts) and hosting events; continued exploration of the Norwich City of Ale partnership with a city tap takeover and a mini Yorkshire beer photography trail working with photographer, Mark Newton and his Beer Yorkshire project.

On Saturday March 10th, to launch the week, there will be a new one-day ticketed beer festival, Indie Beer Feast –  celebration of craft beer in the iconic Abbeydale Picture House with brewery bars and great street food.
