Today we brewed Tidal Gold, the Norwich City of Ale charity beer in support of the EDP Flood Appeal

Using over 10kg of hops including Cascade, Columbus, Chinook, Belma, Pilgrim and Mount Hood our 5% golden IPA promises to be a hoppy-treat. Initially soft and smooth, but building to a high level of hoppiness with blackcurrant and strawberry overtones and an IPA bite.

Norfolk Brewhouse will be donating 20p from every pint sold to the EDP Flood Appeal. City of Ale pubs that have already added their support and placed an order, include:

Angel Gardens, Angel Road
Blueberry, Cowgate
Duke of Wellington, Waterloo Road
Eagle, Newmarket Road
Earlham Arms, Earlham Road
Eaton Cottage, Mount Pleasant
Fat Cat, West End Street
Fat Cat Brewery Tap, Lawson Road
Jubilee, St Leonards Road
Kings Head, Magdalen Street
Maids Head Bar, Maids Head Hotel, Wensum Street
Murderers, Timber Hill
Plasterers Arms, Cowgate
Ribs of Beef, Wensum Street
Rose Inn, Queens Road

Take 5, Tombland

Orders will be delivered into pubs for the start of City of Ale on the 22 May. Brewer David Holliday (pictured with some of the hops) said; “Show your support for the EDP Flood Appeal and Norwich pubs – pop in and try a pint, along with the scores of other great Norfolk brewery beers available to try.”

Marion Turner from Norwich suggested the name Tidal Gold in a competition organised by the City of Ale and won herself a demi-pin of the ale, along with a pair of VIP tickets to the City of Ale Launch Party.
