Local brewer Greene King kindly sponsored a "Guess The Hop" competition at our recent successful Beer and Cider Festival. The winner, Paul Merrill of West Row, (pictured below with Craig Bennett Greene King head brewer).

Paul correctly guessed the hop in the unnamed beer was Ernest and won a private behind the scenes tour of the Greene King Westgate Brewery in Bury St Edmunds with Craig.

As the tour date was also Pauls 50th birthday the team at Greene King decided to make the day extra special and presented Paul with a limited edition bottle of Abbot Ale complete with his own name on the label. Well done Paul and thank you to all at Greene King for making it possible.


Bury pub looks set to reopen and a Horringer pub has reopened so things are looking up in our part of Suffolk
