MATTISHALL'S annual beer festival is all set to top the five-0 this year.

That's the number of barrels expected to be exceeded when the event takes place at Cafe Verde and South Green Park Enterprise Centre on Saturday, July 26.

The festival aims to champion the achievements of the region's brewers, large and small.

And organiser Mark Raines said: "This year, more than 50 barrels from more than 40 breweries across East Anglia will help to celebrate a real Norfolk success story - superb local ales with character and flavour; traditional beers made by people with passion."
