Pub goers will be able to enjoy 10 real ales from across the world alongside a selection of beers from the UK during a 17-day festival at two pubs in Burnley.

Each of the beers has been brewed using only British-grown hop varieties and the festival, at The Brun Lea in Manchester Road and The Boot Inn in St James’s Street, will run from Friday, March 13th, to Sunday March 29th, with all beers £1.85 a pint.

The overseas beers on offer have been sourced from Brazil, Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, USA, Spain, Ireland and Australia. These beers will complement 30 beers from across the UK also being served in the pubs during the festival.

Boot Inn manager Robert Burgess said: “The festival is the perfect opportunity to showcase the wonderful range of British-grown hop varieties and support British hop farmers.

“It will give people the opportunity to enjoy a superb selection of UK and international beers, many of which have not been served in the pub before.

“The festival promises to be great fun and I am certain my customers 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 for all of the beers will be available.
