Outdoors real ale and cider bars, live entertainment and food will be on offer at the various pubs taking part - with the Dronfield Arms even having a craft keg caravan bar.

The festival is organised by local Campaign for Real Ale members Rob Barwell and Andy Cullen with venues to promote the local beer scene, including pubs in the area that are normally difficult to reach by public transport.

“Looking at the plans announced so far, it looks like it could be an incredibly popular event again this year”, said the organisers.
