MORE than 1500 pints were pulled at the Lyme Regis Beer Festival as hundreds turned out to celebrate despite the wet weather.

The fourth annual festival featured 23 ales from the organising breweries, Lyme-based Mighty Hop Brewery and Town Mill Brewery and Chideock-based Art Brew, and 10 ciders from the region as well as a Pimm’s bar.

A mixture of locals and visitors to the area packed out The Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis as the festival was held from noon until 11pm.
