A three-day beer festival is back at a village on the outskirts of Preston this weekend.Advertisement
New Longton beer festival BeerFest is held at the New Longton Sports and Social Club.
A total of 17 cask ales, two craft beers and five ciders will be served up at the festival which is now in its fourth year.
A gin and fizz shack will have nine gins to try along with prosecco and tonics.
Founder of Whitestake based brewery Chainhouse Brewery Ryan Hayes is directing the festival in Chapel Lane.
He said: “We have handpicked some local craft and cask ales this year from breweries such as Crankshaft in Leyland to Black Storm in Whitley Bay. I’ve been involved in many beer festivals but this is one of my favourites. It’s a cracking weekend.”
