Cheers to festival

BRIGG Lions Club stage their annual beer festival from today, Thursday, May 10.

The event is being staged at John Reid’s Haulage Yard in Atherton Way.

Lion Mike Johnson told the Mail more than 30 beers will be available at the three-day event.

One change this year is that the festival finishes on Saturday evening, so there will be no Sunday opening as at previous festivals.

The Lions always try to have special event glasses for drinkers to enjoy their chosen beer from and this year the glasses will have an Olympic theme to celebrate 2012’s big event.

Opening times for the festival are: 7pm-11pm, Thursday and Friday, 11am-11pm Saturday. For more information call 01724 720064.
