Hundreds of beer lovers supped around 1,800 pints during the third Meanwood Beer Festival this weekend.

Festivalgoers were treated to a selection of 34 beers and ciders from seven local breweries, as well as a gin bar and live music.

Organised by Myrtle Tavern landlord Scott Westlake and the team at Meanwood Brewery, the festival was held in support of Meanwood Valley Partnership and host venue Meanwood Cricket Club.

“This year we had a smaller turnout during the day on Saturday due to the weather, but Saturday night was very busy,” Mr Westlake said.

“The comments we got on the selection of beers were the best we’ve had. We’ll definitely be doing it again next year.”

Tickets included a bottle of Meanwood Brewery’s ale, much to the delight of visitors.

Mr Westlake added: “Off the back of that, we’ve looking to do a Meet the Brewer night with them.”
