Beer enthusiasts will be able to sample up to 50 real ales, including ten from overseas, during a 19-day festival at a Tewkesbury pub.

The overseas beers on offer at The Royal Hop Pole in Chuch Street are from brewers in Japan, Lithuania, Holland, Australia, Canada, Italy, USA and Belgium.

The festival will also feature beers from across the UK, including speciality beers (ingredients include heather, grapefruit and elderberries), as well as beers brewed exclusively for the pub.

It will run from Wednesday October 24 until Sunday November 11 inclusive, with all beers priced at £1.99 a pint.
