Beer enthusiasts will be able to enjoy a range of ten real ales from across the world, alongside beers from the UK, during a 17-day festival at an Arbroath pub.

The overseas beers on offer at The Corn Exchange in Market Place have been sourced from brewers in New Zealand, the USA, Holland, Australia, Belgium and Italy.

They will complement a range of beers from across the UK also being served in the pub during the festival.

Five of the international beers are being brewed by women, together with two beers brewed by female brewers in the UK.

The festival will run from Friday, October 17, to Sunday, November 2, inclusive, with all beers priced at £1.90 a pint.

The pub will serve new, seasonal and speciality beers, including those flavoured with ginger, heather and honey, toffee, herbs and spices and cinnamon and nutmeg.

Customers will be able to sample any three of the real ales in special third-of-a-pint glasses for the price of a pint.

Pub manager Paul Laurie said: “The festival will give people the opportunity to enjoy a superb selection of UK and international beers, many of which have not been served in the pub before.

“The festival promises to be great fun and I am certain that my customers will enjoy themselves.”
