BEER enthusiasts will be able to enjoy a range of 30 real ales from the UK and overseas during a 19-day beer festival at a Saffron Walden pub.

The overseas beers on offer at The Temeraire in High Street have been sourced from brewers in New Zealand, Greece, Russia, Canada, USA, Netherlands and Czech Republic.

They will complement the beers from across the UK being served in the pub during the festival.

The festival will run until Sunday April 21 inclusive, with all beers priced at £2.15 a pint.

It will feature new, seasonal and speciality beers, including a passion fruit beer, coffee and chocolate bean beer, wheat beer, blackberry porter, cask lager and a coffee porter.
