The Thirty-Fifth Norwich Beer Festival, Norwich - 31st October 2012

It's the annual Norwich Beer Festival down in St. Andrew's Hall in Norwich. As usual, Big Al sorts out a pub trip, via a train trip from Diss (there just aren't the numbers of hard-core beer-lovers these days to hire a whole coach).
