VIDEO: Beer festival
pulls in the

BEER-MONSTERS had an “ale” of a time at an annual booze festival - and here is your chance to see more snaps from the event.

The 17th Hartlepool Round Table Beer Festival attracted hundreds of revellers who got their glad-rags on, let their hair down, and sampled some fine beers, lagers, ciders and wines.

The fun kicked off at the Borough Hall, on the Headland, on Friday and Saturday nights and the Mail’s photographers were there to take pictures of punters having a great time.

After months of organisation, the festival went off with a bang, with drinks and lively music on offer.

As well as enjoying the ale and the music on offer, people did their bit for the five selected town charities who will benefit from this year’s event.

These are the Hartlepool branch of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), Families First, Red Dreams, Hartlepool MS Support Group and Autism Rights Group Hartlepool (ARGH).

Organisers hope to top the impressive £12,000 raised from last year’s event.
