THE WHY NOT BREWERY

Norwich, Norfolk

The brewery was set up in the spring of 2005.  In autumn 2006 the brewery was extensively upgraded doubling in capacity and two more beers added to the range.  All the beers are available in 500ml bottles but can be supplied in 17 or 36 pint polypins and even firkins.

 

In the summer of 2011 the brewery was moved to a new location in Thorpe St Andrew being housed in a 10 metre long unit with all the equipment now under one roof.


Wally's Revenge, 4.0% abv

An amber orange beer, with an aroma of malt and hops, plus a light floral note.  The taste is a pleasant mix of citrus fruits, hop resins and smooth malt with a firm bitterness to the dry and hoppy aftertaste.


Roundhead Porter, 4.5% abv

A traditional deep ruby old London porter style beer.  Strong aroma of roasted barley with a taste of light fruitiness with a good bitter balance.  The finish gives a suggestion of liquorice and mellow coffee.


Hare of the Dog, 4.5% abv

An easy to drink amber ale. A nicely balanced fruity / bittersweet taste finishing with a strong hoppy aftertaste.


Best Bitter, 4.7% abv

A moreish red tawny bitter with malt and light 'fruit cocktail' notes in the nose.  The malt leads in the mouth but with a firm, bitter, hoppy balance.


Norfolk Honey Ale, 5.0% abv

Genuine Norfolk honey is added to this brew at the boil giving a golden beer with a honey nose.  A bitter taste with a definite hop edge leaving a good honey aftertaste.


Chocolate Nutter, 5.5% abv

Garnet in colour, chocolaty, nutty malt with a gentle fruitiness in the aroma.  Smooth, full flavour is also nutty and malty.  Sweet chocolate tastes contrasts with more dark malt and bitter notes.  Nutty bitter chocolate and roasted grain linger in the after taste.
