Today’s first beer is from Poppyland Brewery at Cromer, Shipden Stout. This is a 4.4% bottle conditioned stout. This dark stout is rich in taste and full bodied, sweet caramel flavours linger on the tongue, with hints of coffee and chocolate The micro-brewery produces small batches of extraordinary flavoursome beer using local malting barley, and some ingredients are foraged around Cromer too. Started by Martin Warren, and now run by Dave Cornell, the philosophy is still the same “adventures in beer start here”. Poppyland have also got into producing gin too, with their East Coast Dry Gin now available.

Beer and gin is always available to buy from the brewery, so please get in touch, and also from Cromer Farm Shop and Giddy Goat in Sheringham. Cask beer can sometimes be found at The Murderers in Norwich, The Kings Head in Norwich and the Hop Inn in North Walsham. Cheers.
