It’s definitely beer weekend during the first weekend of October as New Longton prepares to raise a pint.


Three-day beer and music festival runs from Friday afternoon.

New Longton Sports and Social Club in Chapel Lane, New Longton, is the venue.

Independent and national ales, 25 in total, will be served up alongside five ciders.

This year’s event also includes a gin and prosecco bar serving up eight gins, five tonics and two proseccos.

Mike Boardman from the organising committee, said: “Our BeerFest is very much a community event with a number of micro-breweries and local artists taking part.

“We are delighted to welcome some cracking new ales this year. The gin and prosecco bar will be hugely popular for the local gin connoisseurs. It promises to be a great weekend.”
