Things That Happened At The Blackfriar Tavern

The Day the Norwich Kitwitches Came to Town

On a day marked by unexpected merriment and a touch of enchantment, the Norwich Kitwitches, a Molly Dancing Troupe renowned for their lively dances and spirited music, descended upon our town, turning an ordinary day into an unforgettable celebration of tradition.

The troupe visited a few venues in Great Yarmouth on their final dance out of the season including us here at the Blackfriars Tavern, an establishment celebrated far and wide for its award-winning selection of real ales and ciders. But it wasn’t just the drinks that drew the Kitwitches to Blackfriars; the tavern’s homemade pies and chips were the perfect fare to fuel their day’s endeavors. As they dined, the Kitwitches treated the tavern to an impromptu performance, their melodies weaving through the air, a prelude to the spectacle that was to come.

With bellies full and spirits high, the Kitwitches ventured outside to the car park, transforming the mundane space into a stage for their artistry. They performed seven dances, each more captivating than the last, under the open sky. Customers of the Blackfriars Tavern and passersby alike were drawn to the spectacle, forming an impromptu audience that cheered and clapped, the communal joy palpable in the air.

Then they moved on to dance in Kitty Witches Row (which was an obvious location because of the troupe’s name).

Gentse Strop

A 6.9% Belgian Style Ales Style Belgian Ale from Belgium,usually available at The Blackfriars Tavern in Great Yarmouth, FB: BlackfriarsTavern


Gentse Strop is a blond Belgian speciality beer with high fermentation and
bottle fermentation. It has a fruity aroma and subtle hopping. It owes its
name to the proud people of Ghent, nicknamed Òslings carriersÓ.The beer is brewed by Brouwerij Roman, established in Mater, a borough of
Oudenaard. Oudenaarde and Ghent have a rich history as a pivotal figure in
common with Charles. The revolt of Ghent in 1540 against Charles V gave
them their nickname Òslings carriersÓ but Oudenaarde is also the birthplace
of the illegitimate daughter of Charles, Margaret of Parma. And then
thereÕs the Oudenaardse figure Hanske Warrior who was the lookout but
because he had drunk too much beer fell and sleep and so had not seen how
Charles and his troops invaded the city of Oudenaarde.As the icing on the cake, the historic year of 1545 was also the year that
the Roman family brewery started.

De Dolle Oerbier

A 9% Belgian Style Ales Style Belgian Strong Ale from Belgium,usually available at The Blackfriars Tavern in Great Yarmouth, FB: BlackfriarsTavern


Oerbier means original, from the source. This beer has been brewed in small
scale (5 gallons) at home in a copper wash kettle, by two brothers who were
students at the time. They took over an old brewery which was out of
business and said: “If we don’t bring the brewery back to life, nobody
will!” It was also a unique opportunity to create some interesting brews,
so why not try it? Therefore we went ahead. We did the main work ourselves
and kept the scale of the brewery as it was. Since then, the brewery and
its beers have been an inspiration for a lot of brewers. Oerbier is brewed
from all different malts, Poperinge Golding hops in flowers and a special
yeast which makes it a little tart, especially with aging. At the brewery
we have excellent cellars which have a constant temperature of 8¡C allowing
Oerbier to age at its best.After a couple of years Oerbier tastes like it has been blended with wineÉ
Oerbier has been refermented in the bottle and contains a layer of yeast,
having vitamins B. NAT en STRAF on the glasses means WET and STRONG, a
warning for the 9 vol. alcohol content. The little person on the glasses is
the Oerbier man, a simple creature who holds a brewers fork in his right
hand, symbolizing the work and science, but looking to the other side, the
result of all this, the glass of (Oer)beer. The artwork on the poster is a
wall painting found in Spain (Altamira) and is considered by art lovers as
being the best prehistoric art work (30.000 years BC). On the other hand we
have Oerbier started in 1980, continuing the tradition.Since 2000 as the yeast supply ceased, we installed a new yeast propagator.
The tart aftertaste is obtained by lacto bacterial fermentation (since
2005).
