The year is the 20th anniversary of Reedham-based Humpty Dumpty Brewery, and they are starting the celebrations with the launch of a new beer.

Branch Line Bitter is a 3.9pc abv light chestnut bitter, brewed with a complex mix of malts for a rich body and English hops for a spicy and fruity aroma.

As well as the newly designed Branch Line Bitter, the brewery’s other three flagship beers will be receiving a makeover in the pumpclip design area as it incorporates vintage images for these into the current pumpclip design on handpulls across the county soon.

Other award-winning beers to come out of the brewery are the 4.2pc Broadland Sunrise, a crisp, orange-red ale brewed with rye malt for a dry finish with citrus notes from American hops; Swallowtail, 4.0pc, a pale amber ale with a lively hop finish; and Little Sharpie, 3.8pc, Humpty Dumpty’s best-selling golden session bitter – with a delicate hop aroma.
