A Colne pub will be serving 10 beers from the USA alongside ales from the UK during a 16-day beer festival.

The US craft beers on offer at the Wallace Hartley in Church Street have been sourced from brewers from states including California, Georgia, Massachusetts and Oregon.

They will complement the 40 beers from the UK being served in the pub during the festival. The festival will run until Thursday with all beers priced at £1.79 a pint.

It will feature new, seasonal and speciality beers, including a pumpkin beer, a peppercorn beer, an organic beer and a coffee stout.

In addition, many of the beers are available in the pub for the first time, having been brewed exclusively for the festival.

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.

Pub manager Tom Morecroft said: “We are thrilled to be serving such a fantastic selection of beers from the USA and the UK.

“The craft beers from the USA have never before been available in cask form in the UK, which makes them even more special.

“The festival will be the perfect way for real ale enthusiasts to enjoy a range of excellent beers.

“It will also give them an opportunity to support microbrewers throughout the UK, as the pub is featuring many of their beers.”

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