A selection of up to 20 real ales, including five from overseas brewers, will be available at St Matthew's Hall in Lichfield Street and The Bloxwich Showman in High Street, Bloxwich, as the pubs host the festival from Wednesday, March 6 to Sunday, March 17. The pubs will serve a number of beers that were brewed especially for the festival.

As well as featuring a range of different malt and hop varieties from around the world, such as Taiwan, Germany, USA, Belgium and Italy, there will also be some more unusual options that have chocolate and vanilla as part of their ingredients. The collection will include vegan beers too.

Pints will be priced at £2.49 each.
