HUMPTY DUMPTY BREWERY SPONSOR’S VILLAGE WALK

On the 27th December 2016 a walk around Reedham village was organised to highlight residents disappointment with the closing of a footpath within the village and to raise both awareness and funds with the hope of seeing this reversed and the path re-instated.

The walk started at the village Hall and finished at the brewery where a one off firkin of beer (footpath ale) was donated for sale to the thirsty walkers to further the fund raising. There was also coffee, tea, mince pies, biscuits etc supplied by a willing team of volunteers as well as a tombola, with prizes generously donated from various organisations and  businesses within the village.

2016 CAMRA Awards

awards

Broadland Sunrise picked up the GOLD for best bitter (cask) at the Norwich and Norfolk Camra awards this year. It also picked up SILVER in the overall category with Honey Cat (from the Fatcat Brewery) pipping it to the top spot, well done to them.
Our Bottled Porter also picked up A Silver in the bottled Stout and Porter category.

Charity Cheque

On Tuesday 12th January 2016 representatives from the brewery met with representatives from our local First Responders and Reedham Parish Council.

This was  two-fold event, with the unveiling of the new Defibrillator and cabinet at the village hall – funded by Grants from the Parish Council, the First Responders and the Village Hall Association and the presentation of the Humpty Dumpty cheque to the First Responders from our fund raising in 2015.

In total the brewery presented £1350, of which £1200 was raised at our open weekend in December and the other £150 was given by our local CAMRA (Norwich and Norfolk) on holding their branch meeting at the brewery in September.

Have you seen Humpty?

Just for fun, have you seen a Humpty Dumpty Beer somewhere unusual or unexpected or maybe something named Humpty Dumpty. Send a photo to us,  via email to the webmaster, and we might just add it to this blog (do please keep it safe for work). Here are a couple to get us started….
