The fifth Windsor and Eton Beer Festival on the Vansittart Estate saw 41 different brands offered to enthusiastic fans.

The event was hosted by Windsor and Eton Brewery and marketing manager Charlotte Thompson said: “It was a really good weekend. Everybody left completely happy. We were showcasing guest brews. There are a lot of dedicated, independent businesses and we showcased 41 unique brews. They came from all over the country, including Edinburgh, North Wales and Bodmin, Cornwall.

“It is a real mission for some of these breweries. One beer came from the middle of nowhere between North Wales and Liverpool. I roped a couple of friends who were coming down into collecting it.

“We hope to make the event even bigger and better next time.”

The event was spread over two days, Friday and Saturday evenings with a more relaxing afternoon session in the middle.

Charlotte said: “the evenings were lively and the afternoon was relaxing, giving people a chance to build up their energy again for the evening.”
