Held over Friday and Saturday, the festival saw thousands of pints of real ale and cider quaffed by visitors, including stouts, porters and pale ales from Little Downham brewery Three Blind Mice.

There were also more than 80 other beers and ales on offer from craft breweries in Cambridge, Royston, Wisbech, Waterbeach and Tydd St Giles, as well as offerings from around the UK.

There were more than a dozen ciders, including those from Pickled Pig, in Stretham, and Spinney Abbey, in Wicken.

The event was organised by the Ely and District branch of the Campaign for Real Ale.
