Brews from near and far will be on offer when King’s Lynn Beer Festival returns next week.

The 22nd annual event will be held at the Stuart House Hotel, in Goodwins Road, from 5pm on Thursday, July 25, continuing from noon to late on the Friday and Saturday.

Organised by the Vancouver Round Table and the hotel, the festival will be supporting the West Norfolk branch of the National Autistic Society and it’s hoped several thousand pounds will be raised.

Festival-goers can expect ales from across the country as well as local Norfolk brews, plus a gin, Pimms and prosecco bar.

There will also be live music from 8.30pm each night, a barbecue and a raffle with prizes including a mini-break and meals out.

Round Table member Rob Colwell said: “Hayes + Storr are the main sponsors for the first time this year having supported the event for the last five years. 

“We are hoping to raise several thousand pounds for NAS West Norfolk. We have met several of the dedicated volunteers of the charity who help and support more than 400 people in West Norfolk with events and activities. 

“I’m keeping everything crossed for amazing weather.” 

The beer festival has raised more than £80,000 for charity over the last 20 years.
