Cask Beer heads to Belgium

Grain Brewery, in Alburgh, Norfolk, will be heading to Leuven in Belgium, along with three other Norfolk brewers, to serve its beer at the Innovation Beer Festival in Leuven in May. The Norfolk brewers’ attendance is all part of the twinning of the two great beer cities of Norwich and Leuven, Belgium, inspired by beer writer Roger Protz, and turned into reality by the Norwich City of Ale, and the generosity of the Belgium tourism group, Visit Flanders.

As part of the City of Ale and the city twinning, Grain Brewery has teamed up with Belgian brewery Braxatorium Parcensis from the Park Abbey at Heverlee, near Leuven and Brussels, to create a Belgium inspired beer called ‘Strangers No More’, inspired by the Flemish strangers who brought their textile skills and influence to Norwich in the 1600s.

The collaborative beer ‘Strangers No More’ will be served at the Innovation Festival in Leuven, BE on 20 and 21 May, and also in Norwich pubs and the Grain Brewery Taproom during the City of Ale festival that runs from 25 May to 25 June.
