Drinkers have plenty of choice at Sherfield-on-Loddon Beer Festival
DRINKERS had plenty of choice at one of the largest beer festivals in north Hampshire.
The sixth annual Sherfield-on-Loddon Beer Festival had a selection of 40 beers available, and drinkers could also choose from a smaller range of ciders.
The beers at Sherfield Village Hall included seven brewed at the Sherfield Village Brewery, two from the Longdog Brewery, in Basingstoke, and two more from the Wild Weather Brewery in Silchester.
Live bands and Morris dancing kept the drinkers entertained, while children could have their face painted.
Gilly Duckworth was one of the 30 volunteers who kept the beer flowing on the day.
She said: “It has gone well. It is a very important event in the village, and it was busy with villagers because we had a lot of local bands on. All the businesses in the village benefit becasue there is a huge influx of people.”
Among those sampling the real ale was Kevin Keenan, of Webb Close, Chineham, who had only arrived in the country from South Africa to live just 10 days before.
The 60-year-old said: “It is a bit different from wine tasting. I think it’s a fantastic event and it promotes the village. I would definitely come back next year.”
