A Norfolk chef has created the perfect beers to complement the fish and chips he serves at his renowned Morston Hall and No 1 Cromer restaurants.

Galton Blackiston’s Galton’s No 1 Lager and Ale, both gluten free, were created with local farmers, maltsters and brewers.

Mr Blackiston said: “I loved the idea of crafting my own ale and lager to match with our foods. And I could not have envisaged the way it has turned out.”

Micro-brewery Norfolk Brewhouse, based in Hindringham, and its head brewer Bruce Ash, helped with the recipe development.

David Holliday, co-founder of Norfolk Brewhouse, said: “It was important that the beers went with fish and chips.

“The fish taste can be quite dominant, so the beers had to stand up to the food. If you had fish and, say, a pint of Guinness, then the Guinness flavour would be too strong.”
