Take your tongue on an unforgettable trip from zesty citrus-tinged ales to the rich malty depths of a porter at the 17th Louth Beer Festival.

The event will showcase the choice of local beers, ciders and perries our part of Lincolnshire has to offer.

“Within 20 miles of Louth there are now more than half a dozen breweries and cider makers, many of them producing tipple of sparkling originality, flavour and value,” said Tony Howkins, chairman of Louth and District CAMRA.

“A century ago there were dozens of breweries in the area, but by 1970 there were hardly any left, but now, with the real ale revival, we have seen some creative juices and business flair going into bringing back part of our culture and heritage.”

Hundreds of people flocked through the doors last year, aided by promotion of third-pint samples, and the aim is to make this year’s event even bigger, brighter and better than before, with newly extended hours.

And don’t worry if you are new to beer, there will be plenty of volunteers - male and female - on hand to guide you through the full range of offerings - 17 beers, four ciders and two perries.

The free to enter festival takes place from September 26 to 29 at the Town & Country Club in Cannon Street.
