Ale lovers can try some of Britain’s very best beers when the King’s Lynn Beer Festival returns next week.

Festival organiser Dave Armes has made it his mission to bring some of the country’s champion beers to the table, along with local brews and unique ciders for the event, starting on Thursday.

The festival is being held at the Stuart House Hotel in Goodwins Road, Lynn, and is organised in partnership with Lynn’s Vancouver Round Table to raise money for charity.

Mr Armes, who owns the hotel, said: “The festival offers probably the largest selection of real ales and cider in West Norfolk, including some of the best in Britain, good food and live entertainment with a folk, blues and covers band playing each evening.”

Among the 50 or so beers on offer will be the gold, silver and bronze winners from last year’s Great British Beer Festival organised by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) – namely Timothy Taylor’s Boltmaker, Oakham Citra and Darwins Origin, respectively.

Ciders include toffee apple and raspberry twist, along with traditional scrumpies.

The event will be open from 5pm to 11pm on Thursday and from noon to 11pm on Friday and Saturday.

Money raised from the event will go to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
