Beer festival gets underway

If last year is anything to go by it will be a case of beer today - gone tomorrow!

The second Real Ale of Man Beer festival gets underway today.

Last year's event was so successful many beers ran out before the end of the event.

This year's festival is at the Masonic Hall on Woodbourne Road in Douglas once again with organisers promising a wider range of beers, greater quantities of the frothy nectar and extra space for visitors.

The festival opens this afternoon for a preview session for traders, sponsors, brewers and Campaign for Real Ale members only.

The doors open to the public from 6pm this evening and it runs over two sessions afternoon and evening on Friday and Saturday.
