Last Friday 13th was certainly not unlucky for Green Pastures – we received our licence to sell alcohol and first deliveries of wine and beer! We are really pleased to be able to complement our Christmas lunches and daily menu with some delicious ales and wines that have been produced locally.
We are certainly very fortunate to be located just a few miles away from Woodforde’s Brewery in Woodbastwick and Winbirri Vineyards in Surlingham – both award-winning producers.
We are currently stocking 6 of Woodforde’s ales – their flagship and famous ‘Wherry’, ‘Sundew’ – a subtle golden beer, ‘Norfolk Nog’ – a classic ‘Old Ale’, ‘Bure Gold’ – an aromatic golden ale, ‘Once Bittern’ – a delicious malty beer and ‘Nelson’s Revenge’ – a beer with a great depth of flavour.
If you are not sure which of those appeals the most, why not come along to our Christmas Food and Drink Market on Wednesday 25th November from 3-9pm? Woodforde’s will be here with samples of all their ales for you to try alongside some of our local food producers and the all important Father Christmas! (3-6pm)
If you are more of a wine drinker, then why not try our range from Winbirri Vineyards? We currently have bottles of ‘Bacchus’ and ‘Solaris’ (dry white), ‘Norfolk Pink’ (rosé), and ‘Pinot Noir’ and ‘Reserve’ (red). They have won numerous awards including Silver Medals at the English and Welsh Wine of the Year Awards 2014 for both ‘Solaris’ and ‘Bacchus’. We will also be serving samples of these for you to try at our Christmas Food and Drink Market.
All of our beers and wines are available to buy by the bottle or case in our shops (perfect for Christmas presents!) or in the restaurant by glass or bottle as an accompaniment to your meal. (We reserve the right to ask for Proof of Age ID).
