It’s getting bigger and better every year!

Organisers of the Trimley Beer Festival, which gets under way today, say the event has grown each time and are hoping this year’s will attract 1,000 visitors.

The four-day event – the eighth annual – includes a music festival and for the first time a food fair.

It is hosted by the Trimley Sports and Social Club, and manager Alistair McKenzie said there would be 40 beers for people to try, with 30 kegs out at any one time, and six ciders.

He said: “Each year we are looking to see what we can add, how we can improve it.

“Last year we had 700 to 800 people attending and this time we are aiming for more.

“It’s a great chance for people to sample some different beers from the small micro-breweries and we have ones brewed all over the country.”
