Beer connoisseurs were out in force yesterday to sample real ales, ciders and perrys at the annual Ilkley Beer Festival.

Ilkley Round Table's fifth beer festival has taken over the Kings Hall and Winter Garden, Station Road, raising money for good causes.

Sessions took place yesterday and continue today 5pm until 11pm.

Over the two days the popular annual event will see 15,000 pints of beer consumed, as well as 1,000 pints of cider.

It is now Ilkley Round Table’s biggest fund raiser and to date has raised over £100,000 for local charities and good causes. Proceeds from the beer festivals are distributed to a number of local good causes and organisations.
