In addition, many of the beers are available in the pub for the first time, having been brewed exclusively for the festival.

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

Pub manager Mark Gavan said: “We are thrilled to be serving such a fantastic selection of beers from across the world as well as those brewed in the UK.

“The overseas beers have never previously been available as cask ales in the UK, which makes them even more special.

“The festival will be the perfect way for real ale enthusiasts to enjoy a range of excellent beers from overseas brewers.

“It will also give them an opportunity to support brewers throughout the UK, as the pub is featuring many of their beers.”

Tasting notes on all of the beers will be available in the pub.
