Next week’s annual beer festival in Tamworth will be celebrating the Staffordshire Hoard.
The Tamworth Beer Festival takes place from next Thursday to Saturday (September 8 to 10).
Offa's Sword, Golden Chalice, Black Gold and 'Medal' detector, along with the official Staffordshire Hoard beer, will be available at this year's festival.
It has been organised by the Lichfield, Sutton and Tamworth Branch of CAMRA, and takes place at the Assembly Rooms in Corporation Street. It will feature more than 100 real ales, ciders and perries. The festival is coinciding with the display of the Staffordshire Hoard in the town.
Last year's festival saw more than 1,500 visitors, drinking more than 7,000 pints of ale and cider during the festival.
The festival will open its doors at 11am on Thursday. Entrance prices vary throughout the event, with free admission for CAMRA members. Cash will also be raised for St Giles Hospice.
