BEER lovers were treated to 28 real ales at the Wantage Beer Festival.

The festival, which was in its sixth year, took place at The Civic Hall in Wantage on Friday and Saturday.

It was organised by CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) White Horse Branch and raised money for the national organisation.

With the real ales, there were also six ciders to choose from and live music to enjoy on Friday night.

CAMRA White Horse Branch member Martin Reade, 67, from Steventon, said: “It was good.

“The festival introduces us to different beers from across the country, we get to meet lots of people and it just a pleasant experience.

“Unfortunately, the majority of people tend to be older rather than younger, but there is a younger brigade coming along.

“It is a way of promoting CAMRA and real ale, which is still on the up.”
