Suffolk-based brewery The Krafty Braumeister have launched Krafty’s Blondie, a new blonde
lager brewed using barley malts from the county. Krafty's version of the artisanal Munich Helles is rich golden in colour.
It has the character of lightly toasted bread and a light sweetness. The result is a very tasty, easy drinking thirst quencher.
The Krafty Braumeister is a German brewery based in Leiston. They handcraft beers in small batches using traditional German brewing techniques. Krafty follows the German purity law of brewing (Reinheitsgebot), meaning that the only ingredients they use are malted grains, hops, yeast and water. All of Krafty's beers are vegan friendly and free from added sugars and supplements.
The company was founded by
Uli Schiefelbein in 2018. His love for brewing began when he was working in Baghdad, where the only available beers were canned, stored at temperatures above 40°C and brewed under license of two of the world’s biggest breweries.
There was only one solution: to brew his own. Uli came to Suffolk in 2013 after studying historical German beer-styles and learning professional brewing in the UK.
  In brief
Bury poet’s ‘thank you’ to the nation’s publicans
A Suffolk poet has been helping spread some cheer to hard hit publicans across the country with a ‘National Poem of Thanks to our Nation’s Publicans’ that she has written and performed in tribute to them. The poem called ‘The Public House’ by Alexandra Ewing, (pictured) who lives in Bury St Edmunds and is the daughter of a former Suffolk publican, is to thank them and their staff for their resilience and continuing support of their local communities during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Bar closes
LP, a bar and nightclub in Bury’s town centre has closed due to the ongoing coronavirus restrictions. The venue in Woolhall Street, which was also a restaurant, had been trading for more than 10 years in the town.
going that
extra mile
The Chestnut Group’s Giving Tree project saw another charitable
initiative earlier this year with the hospitality group’s team members notching up over 3,600 miles on foot, in the saddle and on fitness mats.
That is
the equivalent of travelling to Land's End to John O'Groats and back, twice.
For every mile walked, run, skated, skipped or cycled – the Giving Tree are donating one meal to a local family who is struggling to put a healthy, home- cooked meal on the table. The next target is to reach 10,000 miles and 10,000 meals.
Digging these
hotel options
If watching The Dig on Netflix has inspired you to visit Sutton Hoo and see the Anglo-Saxon ship’s burial site for yourself, why not book a stay at nearby Woodbridge or Orford with their Suffolk Hotel Folk flexible rate for when we can travel again. Choose from the Crown at Woodbridge or the Crown and Castle at Orford, a few steps from Henry II’s 12th century castle.
