Ipswich is home to the Tolly Cobbold Brewery. The Cobbold family was, for years, also involved with the football club in the town.
Personally, I don't drink real ale so I don't know what their beer is like. Tolly Cobbold are a typical local brewery found all over England.
The bottle label below was a limited edition ale they brewed to celebrate the marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in April 1981.
No matter how long you live in Ipswich you will always be a stranger. Maybe it is the history of this part of the UK being invaded that make then wary of strangers, I don't know.
There are certainly re-necked and uncosmopolitan now.
