It was great to go to the beer festival in Dover at the Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club.
The festival was supported by the Dover, Deal and Sandwich Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) to promote local Kent brewers and ale varieties. I tried a selection of local ales with local Conservative councillor Nigel Collor and spoke to beer enthusiasts at the club.
It was a fantastic festival. The brewing and pub industry contributes nearly 1,500 jobs to our local economy in Dover and Deal. It's a vital trade and we have so many great local brewers in Kent. It's great to see our local pub and brewing trade doing so well and I really enjoyed supporting the festival.
