The first annual Sedgley beer festival took place this weekend and was a hit with the locals.
The two-day festival took place at Jubilee Hall in Ladies Walk, Sedgley, it was organised by First Sedgley Scout Group and 1st Sedgley Morris Men who both use the hall.
Beer lovers in the Black Country were able to try over 20 cask ales all in the name of raising money.
We tried a few halves ourselves finding a bit of Lemon Dream, Blue Monkey and Drunken Duck to be some of our favourites – we of course liked the names too.
There was a great atmosphere, and you could even grab a bit of grub too, including the mandatory local pork scratchings.
Money from the event will go towards the scout group’s work to build a log cabin-style room at the back of the hall and refurbish the venue’s toilets. Some will also go towards Children in Need and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, which is the morris dancers’ chosen charity of the year.
The total hasn’t been confirmed yet, but the team were looking to raise in the region of £2,000.
Both days were packed, even announcing on Twitter on Saturday (which was also national beer drinking day):
