Reepham brewery’s lager commended

A lager brewed by Panther Brewery has received an award from the Norwich & District Campaign For Real Ale (CAMRA), which judged Norfolk’s best bottled beers for 2021.
The Reepham brewery’s Hunter Dry Hopped Lager was runner up in the speciality beers category. First place was awarded to Elmtree Brewery of Snetterton for its Winter Solstice dark porter.
The overall Gold winner was Audit Ale, a dark copper barley wine brewed by the Great Yarmouth-based Lacons Brewery.
Norfolk & District CAMRA panel chair Alan Edwards explained: “Real ale in a bottle has been the only way to enjoy the many quality Norfolk-brewed beers recently, due to pub closures and restrictions due to the Covid pandemic. It has also enabled many breweries to survive.”
