The festival held at Beccles Public Hall, in Smallgate has offered beer lovers a chance to taste-test some of the finest brews from the region.

Graham Elliot, Waveney Councillor and organiser of the beer festival said: “It is all about celebrating the locals and celebrating the assets of the community.

“It is going really well and we had a really big day yesterday - it is a good atmosphere,” Mr Elliot added.

A staggering 1500 pints have been poured to the eclectic bunch of young and old attendees since the doors opened on Friday.

Scores of beer lovers have come to enjoy 30 different ales from across the region - including gluten free and vegan options.

The festival will run until 11pm this evening (Saturday, November 17) and reopen at 12pm on Sunday, with take-outs from five and discounted brews at six.

All money raised at the event will go towards Beccles Lido’s fund raising project to refurbish, update and reline the main pool.
