34,000 pints sunk at St Albans Beer and Cider Festival
Thousands of real ale enthusiasts flocked to Alban Arena over four days to enjoy this year’s St Albans Beer and Cider Festival.
The festival, now in its 18th year, enjoyed its best attendance yet with more than 10,000 people through the doors.
John Bishop, from Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), said: "It was a fantastic success all round. It really was good for us.
"It is great to see people are enjoying real ale and supporting CAMRA. We had our best ever attendance with over 4,000 people throughout the week."
During the four days between Wednesday and Friday, 34,000 pints of beer were sold and 4,000 ciders. Visitors also enjoyed bottle condition beers and foreign beers.
Mr Bishop added he was pleased to recruit 75 more new members to the St Albans branch of CAMRA.
He said: "People realise that the festival is a great night out. It is good value for money, £4 for a great night out, evening of entertainment and a couple of beers."
The festival was part of the St Albans Food and Drink Festival between Wednesday and Sunday, which aims to celebrate the city’s food and drink establishments.
