Twenty-two ales and live entertainment will help to pull in the punters during an Autumn beer festival at The Grapes Inn, Belper.

Everything from porter to mild and ruby ales are on offer at the High Street pub this weekend. Belper singer Max McTavish will also help to entertain on Friday and Saturday.

Landlord Phil Varney has run a Spring and Autumn festival since taking over the boozer 11 years ago.

“It’s always successful. I like to stick to the more renowned brewers as I feel some of the others can be too inconsistent,” he said. Pictured left to right are: Jem Wheeler of Brains Builders, Claire Varney from The Grapes and Russ Downing.
