THOUSANDS of pints were poured and drunk during another successful Chappel Beer Festival.

Event organisers estimate 9,800 people attended the five-day event, which took place at the East Anglian Railway Museum.

In total, more than 30,000 pints of beer were drunk throughout the festival as suppliers emptied a grand total of 452 kegs. Along with hundreds of beers, punters were able to make the most of a variety of specialist ciders and wines on offer.

Organiser Brendan Southcott said he was pleased with the event.

He added: “The whole festival went really well. The number of visitors seemed to grow each day.

“I would say the busiest period was Saturday afternoon when we had families and a good mix of people turn up.

“We had lots going on with Morris dancers and bands providing live music. It was certainly as good as other years.”
