Beverley Real Ale Festival is a huge success
The first ever Beverley Real Ale Festival has been hailed a huge success after hundreds of people flocked to St Mary's Church this weekend.
Organised by James Harper and Paul East, over 500 people attended St Mary's Church where some of the finest ales from across the country were available to sample.
The festival got off to a fantastic start on Friday evening, with an exclusive all-ticket event, with guests getting the chance to sample 46 world-class ales and cider from local producers including Great Newsome Brewery, Wold Top, Moorlands Cider and top entertainment from some of the region's finest acts including HarriWattsband and the Beverley Brass Band.
Sponsored by Westfield Home Buyers & supported by East Yorkshire-based Great Newsome Brewery, The New Inn Leven and Harper Creative, the festival continued with it's family atmosphere throughout Saturday, October 20, with family games, more live music and of course the ale.

Over 500 people are believed to have walked through the doors of St Mary's on Saturday and organiser James Harper is thrilled with people's reaction to the town's first ever real ale festival.
He said: "Myself and Paul have run an ale festival in Leven for the past two years, which have both been really successful so we decided to bring one to Beverley as the town has never had one.
"We wanted somewhere central to hold the event and what better place than St Mary's?
"We contacted the vicar and she was more than happy for us to hold the event in the church. It is a perfect place, plenty of space and cool to keep the ale cold."The festival has helped raise money for St Mary's Church and Reverend Becky Lumley was full of praise for the organisers.
"It is just so lovely to see the church so full of people, and everybody seems to be really enjoying themselves."
