Chichester pub to hold 19-day real ale festival

Beer enthusiasts can enjoy up to 50 real ales, during a 19-day festival at a Chichester pub.

The beer festival will run at the Dolphin and Anchor, West Street, from Wednesday, October 24, until Sunday, November 11, with all beers priced at £1.99 a pint.

Wetherspoon’s pub manager David Johnson said: “The festival will give people the opportunity to enjoy a superb selection of UK and international beers.

“We will be serving the largest selection of overseas beers ever available in the pub, together with a fantastic range of UK beers.

“Many of the beers on offer have not been available in the pub beforehand and I am looking forward to serving them.

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

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, so they can pick their perfect tipple.

Tasting notes on all of the beers will be available in the pub.

The festival will feature beers that list heather, grapefruit and elderberries in their ingredients, as well as speciality beers brewed in the UK exclusively for the pub.
