A newly-opened tourist destination and heritage centre in west Suffolk will unveil its own beer at a late summer festival.

People will be able to sample 20 real ales and six ciders alongside a selection of pies and pastries at the Late Summer Beer and Pie Festival at Bury St Edmunds Guildhall.

The event, which is open to over 18s only, runs from 5pm-10pm on Friday, September 21, and from 11am-4pm and 5pm-10pm on Saturday, September 22.

Beer-lovers will be able to try the new Guildhall Ale – which has been developed by Ingham-based Brewshed Brewery specially for the festival.

Suzanne Stevenson, manager at the Guildhall, said: “This is going to be a great event for lovers of real ale and cider and fans of delicious food, all served in our historic Guildhall.”
