VIDEO: Beer Festival is a barrel of fun

Things are getting into full swing at Eastbourne Beer Festival, which kicked off last night.

The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) festival has returned for the 12th year in a row to the Winter Garden, with a range of ciders, perries, wines and bottled beers from around the world.



But local beer from the Long Man Brewery will also be on offer at the event, which goes on until Sunday at The Winter Garden.

The locally-brewed beer, named ‘Craft Pier’, is raising money for Eastbourne’s fire damaged pier.

It joins a host of more than 160 of the best real British ales from around the country for revellers to enjoy.

There are sessions this evening (Friday), Saturday (day-time - and evening).
