Real ale enthusiasts flocked to a Burnley social club for its seventh beer festival.

Bosses at Briercliffe Social Club, in Holgate Street, said the three-day spectacular had been the best yet, with more than 300 people of all ages queueing up to sample 14 guest bitters, four ciders and two specialist lagers.

The festival has run twice a year for the last three years and the next one will be in October.

Among the breweries showcasing their best ales were Reedley Hallows, Moorhouses and Worsthorne Brewery from Burnley and others from Carnforth and Skipton.

Club steward and bar manager Barry Graham said: “It was a sell-out. It was really busy, it was the best yet. On the Friday night we had 100 people and on Saturday there were 200. People filled in the tasting notes but we haven’t had time to check them yet so we’ll have a look at them and find out which one is the most popular.

“The beer festival is just getting better and better and people want real ales. We took a risk and it’s paid off.”
