In 2015 Maris Otter celebrates its 50th harvest – something which is definitely worth celebrating.
H Banham Ltd, along with David & Rachel Holliday from The Norfolk Brewhouse, are putting together the Maris Otter 50 Beer Festival, which will showcase brewers from across Britain as well as some international brewers. There will be new brewers, established brewers, small micros as well as larger brewers – but they all share one thing in common – a passion for brewing with Maris Otter.
All of the brewers will craft a new brew to debut at the festival – that’s 50 new brews celebrating a very special malting barley, which in its 50 years has become recognised as the premium choice for brewers the world over.
 
To whet your appetite this is what we have to offer so far:
CASK ALE
INTERNATIONAL
CHANNEL ISLANDS &  ISLE OF MAN
ENGLAND
SCOTLAND
WALES
BOTTLED ALE
  • Poppyland Norfolk
  • Maris Otter 50 brewers will be providing a selection of their bottled beers which use Maris Otter – a wide range of beers of all styles and strengths will be available.
CRAFT KEG BEERS
The festival will also feature a craft beer bar serving craft kegged products from Maris Otter brewers to highlight the exciting beers in this sector which are using Maris Otter barley. Please look out for more info.
They will include a number of UK and overseas beers
…and a few other surprises.

The festival will showcase Maris Otters versatility in beer styles and consistency in taste and quality which it brings to a beer.
The festival will take place in Norwich – the county capital of Norfolk, one of the world’s leading malting barley growing regions.
The setting is almost as stunning as the beers – Open – a grand former bank. The event takes place on Thursday 17th, Friday 18th and Saturday 19th September 2015. There will be an evening session on the 17th and a lunchtime and evening session the other days. Tickets will be available in advance for each of the five sessions, although there will also be tickets to purchase on the door. (subject to maximum venue numbers) Please check back for regular updates on ticket and festival information and also details of the award-winning brewers involved.
We look forward to welcoming you to the festival. Contact us about the beer festival beerfestival@marisotter50.co.uk
