The festival held at Beccles Public Hall, in Smallgate has offered beer lovers a chance to taste-test some of the finest brews from the region.

Graham Elliot, Waveney Councillor and organiser of the beer festival said: “It is all about celebrating the locals and celebrating the assets of the community.

“It is going really well and we had a really big day yesterday - it is a good atmosphere,” Mr Elliot added.

A staggering 1500 pints have been poured to the eclectic bunch of young and old attendees since the doors opened on Friday.

Scores of beer lovers have come to enjoy 30 different ales from across the region - including gluten free and vegan options.
