607: Humpty Dumpty Brewery | Little Sharpie

20190805_134846The Brewery: “Humpty Dumpty Brewery was founded in 1998 in Reedham, Norfolk, and moved to its current location on Church Road in 2001. We take our name from the GER Class T-19R steam locomotives that operated on the Norwich – Lowestoft line in the early 20th Century……..The 2-4-0 engines were front-heavy and looked as if they might fall off the line, and so were dubbed “Humpty Dumpties”.”

The Beer: “One of our core beers. When: All year round. Description: Our best-selling golden session bitter. A delicate hop aroma leads to a light clean tasting finish.”

Sampled in a the riverside garden of a lovely pub just a mile away from where this was brewed. It neither offended or excited but that’s me and golden ales. Would doubtless make a good session beer and I hope future visits to Norfolk bring forth the opportunities to try more from their range. 3.8% A.B.V.
