Norwich – NR3 Beer Mile


Well, this is a marvellous idea (not least as some of my favourite venues are taking part) as 11 Norwich pubs in the NR3 postcode have come together to organise a beer mile. The excitement will be taking place between Thursday 10 August to Sunday 13 August, although as I’m walking some of the Shotley 50 event this weekend, I’m unlikely to be visiting very many of the pubs.


However, I wanted to take part in at least some form, so I went to visit the Leopard to collect a map of the event and also get my first of the trading cards. There was already interest on the Thursday afternoon and the staff member thought it would be a success, so perhaps this might become an annual event. The weather is favourable at the moment (not favourable to me as I like rain) which might also help bring out the crowds.


My first stamp and trading card, this one from the Leopard.

The pubs, which have over 200 beers between them, are :


Brewery Tap


Duke of Wellington

King’s Head


Malt and Mardle

Plasterers Arms

Ribs of Beef
