In the line of duty… 150 miles for a pint!
Being editor of First Voice, the flagship membership publication of the Federation of Small Businesses, can be a tough gig. This week, all in the line of duty, Stef drove all the way to the Norfolk on the trail of a cover story and in pursuit of a pint!
The story was a good one (and the beer pretty tasty too!)…
Working with Mid-Norfolk FSB, Norfolk brewery Grain produced a special FSB Keep Trade Local beer to illustrate how its beer reaches parts of the local economy that a national brand simply can’t. The beer that Grain sells in pubs across East Anglia is at the end of a product chain that exemplifies the FSB’s Keep Trade Local message – that if you buy locally-made products, you’re supporting jobs in the community.
Around 25 local firms provide products and services to Grain; not simply the ingredients that go into Grain’s India Pale Ale (CAMRA Champion bottled beer of Norfolk 2013) for example, but financial services, engineering, pest control, printing and a whole host of others.
Look out for the story in the August issue of First Voice and on First Voice Online!
