VIDEO: Raising a glass or two at beer festival

Waiting for Video...

Thousands of punters poured in to sample the drinks on offer at this year’s Fleetwood Beer and Cider Festival.

Around 2,500 passed through the doors at the Marine Hall over the three nights of the festival, which ended on Saturday.

The venue was packed at times, with people queuing up to taste some of the 120 beers and ciders being served.

But despite being busy, organisers said they had plenty of staff working hard to make sure people were not left waiting too long.

Bar manager Russell Cobb, who has been involved for seven of the festival’s 32 years, said: “It was brilliant. The festival went really well.

“Friday night was our busiest night, as usual, and we had very little beer left. You don’t want to run out but we did get rid of most of it.

“Our chairman Paul Smith has been fantastic – it is one heck of a job he does.”
