Real ales at Inverurie

BEER enthusiasts will be able to enjoy a range of real ales from the UK and overseas during a 19-day beer festival at an Inverurie pub.

The overseas beers on offer at The Gordon Highlander in West High Street have been sourced from brewers in New Zealand, Greece, Russia, Canada, USA, Netherlands and Czech Republic.

They will complement the beers from across the UK being served in the pub during the festival.

The festival will run from Wednesday, April 3, until Sunday, April 21, inclusive, with all beers priced at £2.15 a pint.

It will feature new, seasonal and speciality beers, including a passion fruit beer, coffee and chocolate bean beer, wheat beer, blackberry porter, cask lager and a coffee porter.

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, Steven Murphy, said: “The festival will give people the opportunity to enjoy a superb selection of UK and international beers, many of which have not been served in the pub before.

“It is also the perfect way for real ale enthusiasts to support microbrewers, as we are featuring many of their beers.”
