BRENTWOOD Brewing Company was delighted to welcome hundreds of visitors to their Beer and Gin Festival at the brewery.

Among the beer fans enjoying a selection of Brentwood brewed real ales was the town’s new MP, Alex Burghart, who made the festival his first official constituency visit since becoming MP for Brentwood and Ongar.

Brentwood Brewery MD Roland Kannor said: “It was our biggest and best Beer Festival at the brewery yet. We’re thrilled and grateful that so many local people turned out to make it such a jolly occasion. The weather was kind too as it was a marvelous, sunny, Summer’s day.

“We’d like to thank everyone for coming along including our special guests and the bands. We really appreciate the support.

“It’s been such a great success that we’re already planning our next Beer Festival, Oktoberfest, at Brentwood Brewery on Saturday September 9.”
