If such things as a passion fruit beer, coffee and chocolate bean beer, wheat beer, blackberry porter, cask lager and a coffee porter are to your taste, then Tewkesbury is the place for you.

Beer enthusiasts will be able to sample a range of 50 real ales from the UK and overseas during a 19-day beer festival at a Tewkesbury pub.

The overseas beers on offer at The Royal Hop Pole in Church 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 from Wednesday April 3 until Sunday April 21 inclusive, with all beers priced at £2.15 a pint.

The overseas beers include such exotic brews as Ionian Coffee Porter (Corfu Brewing Company, Greece); Siberian Red (Vasileostrovsky Brewery, Russia); and American Amber (Devils Back Bone Brewery, USA).

The UK beers include Willy Nilly (Brains); Pursuit of Hoppyness (Rudgate); Cereal Thriller (Banks's); and Tasmanian Wolf (Wolf).
