In pictures: Blackburn Beer Festival

The Blackburn Beer Festival has raised £14,000 for the Blackburn Youth Zone.

The festival was organised by a committee of local business people who, after a trip to a similar festival in Bolton, felt a Blackburn beer festival was long overdue.

Local brewery Thwaites was part of the organising team and used its extensive industry contacts to bring an eclectic selection of ales from across the North West and beyond. Lancashire Business View is acting as the festival’s media partner.

Farley’s and PM+M are main festival sponsors alongside manufacturing firm Cardboard Box Company. [gallery link="file" ids="40660,40661,40662,40663,40664,40665,40666,40667,40668,40669"]
