Among the entertainment on offer was live music, real ales, real lagers, pickled pig ciders, wine and soft drinks, as well as a BBQ with locally-produced sausages and burgers from Tyler Butchers.

The beer festival was launched in 2004 by a group of volunteers aiming to raise funds to improve the recreation ground in the village.

Since then the festival has raised more than £30,000, with the money being put towards the ongoing development of the multi-use games area and the play areas.
