Prison guards faced a stand-off with a group of inmates who were caught drinking home brew.
A group of 10 prisoners rioted at HMP Edmunds Hill in Stradishall near Bury St Edmunds, in Suffolk, damaging toilets and showers.
Trouble erupted after the inmates were discovered in a residential unit at the category C prison drinking home brew. They refused to return to their cells.
The disturbance ended the next morning, in the early hours of 24 September.
A Prison Service spokesman said: "All of the prisoners involved were transferred to other prisons.
"There were no reported injuries and the rest of the prison was unaffected."
