PUB-GOERS will be able to enjoy a selection of up to 25 beers from independent British craft brewers during a 12 day festival at two pubs in Basingstoke.

The festival is taking place at The Maidenhead Inn in Winchester Street and The Angel in Festival Place from Wednesday, 10 October to Sunday, 21 October inclusive

Each of the brewers is a member of SIBA – the organisation that promotes small independent brewers and their beers.

Among the beers on offer are those brewed exclusively for the festival as well as award-winners.

All beers and ciders are priced at £2.39 a pint.

Customers will be able to sample any three of the real ales or ciders in special third-of-a-pint glasses for the price of a pint.

The Maidenhead Inn manager, Jonathan Fletcher, said: "The festival is the perfect opportunity to showcase the wonderful range of beers from independent British craft brewers.

"It will give people the opportunity to enjoy a superb selection of the beers that they brew, many of which have not been served in the pub before.

"The festival promises to be great fun and I am certain that my customers will enjoy themselves."

Tasting notes of all of the beers and ciders will be available in the pubs.
