A micro-brewery has been awarded a national contract with one of Britain’s major supermarket chains after winning a new beer contest.

Suffolk’s St Peter’s Brewery won the “Brewed for Morrisons Beer festival 2017” competition.

The competition saw Morrisons stock a range of new beers throughout October - with Plum Porter from St Peter’s Brewery being named the toast of them all.

Plum Porter will now be available in 400 stores nationwide.

Steve Magnall, chief executive of the brewery at St Peter South Elmham, said: “We are delighted to win this competition and gain a national listing for our new Plum Porter.

“The fact that it was a dark beer that came out on top with Morrisons customers proves that tastes are changing.”

He added: “It’s a perfect, warming beer for the winter season and obviously went down very well with Morrisons customers and buyers.
