Drinkers in Lichfield have until April 13 to enjoy the delights of National Cask Ale Week.

Pubs across the city including The Bowling Green, The Duke of Wellington, Samuels, The Dr Johnson, The George & Dragon and The Horse & Jockey are participating.

Mike Benner, Chief Executive of the Campaign for Real Ale, said:

“This is the first time that brewers and pub groups have come together to create one massive event in honour of cask ale. We want to celebrate this natural, hand crafted product that is unique to pubs and remind the great British public why cask ale is our national drink.

“There will be events for everyone from cask ale fans to cask ale virgins. Each beer has its own unique flavour, so there is something for every taste.”

As part of the week, an attempt to break the record for the world’s largest toast will take place on April 11 at 7pm. Six thousand venues across Britain will aim to smash the current record of 485,000 people toasting simultaneously.
