Lacons Brewery has donated boxes of real ale to be enjoyed, there are barrels of beer from the Hemsby Sports & Social Club, and also to help quench adult’s thirst on the day is the Coltishall Red Lion’s mobile double decker bus bar serving gin, prosecco and real ale beers from its downstairs bar outside the lifeboat station
