Beer enthusiasts will be able to enjoy a range of real ales, including ten from overseas, during a 19 day festival at a Louth pub.

The overseas beers on offer at The Joseph Morton in Pawnshop Passage, Kidgate, have been sourced from brewers in Japan, Lithuania, Holland, Australia, Canada, Italy, USA and Belgium.

The festival will also feature beers from across the UK, including speciality beers (ingredients include heather, grapefruit and elderberries), as well as beers brewed exclusively for the pub.

It will run from Wednesday October 24 until Sunday November 11.

The UK beers will include; Ghost Train (Box Steam), Moonraker (J.W.Lees), Crafty Devil (Thwaites), Squadron Scrabble (Tring), Howling Wolf (Banks’s), War Horse (White Horse), Hopocalypse Vale (Vale), Gunpowder Mild (Coach House) and Kookaburra (Cotleigh).

Pub manager Emma Keeley said: “The festival will give people the opportunity to enjoy a superb selection of UK and international beers.

“We will be serving the largest selection of overseas beers ever available in the pub, together with a fantastic range of UK beers.

“Many of the beers on offer have not been available in the pub beforehand and I am looking forward to serving them.

“The festival promises to be great fun and I am certain that customers at The Joseph Morton will enjoy themselves.”

Customers will be able to sample any three of the real ales in special third-of-a-pint glasses for the price of a pint.

Tasting notes on all of the beers will be available in the pub.
