A third of a pint please, landlord

PINTS in thirds may sound strange, but to bring out all the choice of 21 beers and ciders available at the 16th Louth Beer Festival, they will be available for the first time in 1/3rd of a pint glasses as well as the regular halves and pints.

It’s because the tipples are so inviting you will want to sample them all, for the price of a pint!

Try Dark Star Espresso, whose ingredients actually include Arabica coffee beans, or Kingston Topaz, a light citrus beer with an aroma of flowers.

Louth Beer Festival has free entry and takes place from October 4-6 at The Town and Country Club in Cannon Street, Louth.
