An award-winning pub is rolling out a big Easter beer treat for the Bank Holiday weekend.

Following on from past successes, the annual festival returns to cask ale haven the Yew Tree Inn at Spurstow near Tarporley, which has twice been voted Pub of the Year by the Marketing Cheshire Awards.

Some 20 brand new ales from around the country will be on offer, with the added attraction of several brews from the new wave ‘craft keg’.

The cask beer list includes beer from several craft brewers across the UK, -including Anarchy of Northumberland, Shiny of Derby; Hanlons of Devon, Tap East London, Tickety Brew Manchester and Chester’s own Pied Bull brewery.

Licensee Jon Cox said: “Each year we ring the changes so that all the brews are completely new to the pub. This list gives us a great choice from light blond ales to darker, sturdier brews.

“And this year we are to embracing the new ‘craft keg’ market by introducing more founts to stand alongside our regular taps. Brew Dog beers are already very popular and we will build on that. “Many of these beers go especially well with dishes on our menu.”

He added: “We are passionately dedicated to cask-conditioned ales, but we know that some of customers are keen to try the new craft brews, which are not much available outside specialist city centre bars.

“So there will be beers for both the adventurous and the more traditional minded beer enthusiast.”

The festival runs from Good Friday lunchtime until Easter Monday night. There will also be live music on both nights and a 'surprise' food theme alongside the regular menu. Entry is free throughout the weekend.
