Revellers raise a glass as Booze on the Ouse festival celebrates milestone
- Credit: Archant
Around 1,200 people turned up for a tipple to help the Huntingdonshire branch of the Campaign for Real Ale celebrate its 50th Booze on the Ouse beer festival.
They enjoyed a range of more than 70 real ales, including CAMRA award winners, local beers, cider and perry, at the Priory Centre in St Neots.
Paul Moorhouse, from CAMRA, said: “It went pretty well and it was successful from the point of view that we had 1,200 people through the door who enjoyed a great range of beer, judging by the feedback we had.”
He said the numbers were a little lower this year but this may been down to people staying at home because of the cold weather over the weekend.
Mr Moorhouse said there had been a lot of interest in dark beers, porters and stouts.
