A popular beer festival is returning to Dorset this month.

Independent family brewer, Hall & Woodhouse, is set to welcome guests to the Dorset Beer Festival on June 21 and 22.

The annual event is a celebration of the brewery's heritage and history in the beer industry and will include live music, freshly prepared food, and more barrels of classic beers, ales, and ciders than ever before.

Heidi McLaughlin, visitor and experience manager at Hall & Woodhouse, said: “The Dorset Beer Festival has been running for over 12 years now and has evolved from a small gathering to a staple event in our calendar at Hall & Woodhouse.

"With a variety of live music and stalls to enjoy, there is guaranteed to be something for everyone. We’re excited to see the local community and those from across the county come together and enjoy some amazing beers.”

Festival-goers will have the chance to taste over 50 different beers from Badger Beers and other favoured brewers.
