An outstanding total of 85 barrels have been sponsored for this years Dorchester Beer Festival. The huge support from local businesses has also been matched by those who have already snapped up the last tickets available for the Friday evening and Saturday lunch / evening sessions.

The annual event, which will be held on the 3 & 4 February has grown from strength to strength however its popularity has left just some tickets available for the Friday lunchtime session.

In addition to the wide range of real ales from across the country the festival evenings include bands Wishbones (Friday) and Gordons Alive (Saturday).

Spokesman for the Beerex committee stated "We are delighted by the response from barrel sponsors and the demand for tickets but disappointed we are simply unable to cater for more people. Unfortunately this means, with the exception of the Friday lunchtime session, we will have to turn people away at the door if they turn up without a ticket.

Main sponsors, The Dorset Piddle Brewery, and many local businesses, which either sponsor a barrel or donate a raffle prizes ensure that a significant contribution can be given to local charities and good causes.

This is the 24th annual Beerex festival held in Dorchester and is jointly organised by the Campaign For Real Ale (CAMRA), Dorchester Round Table and Dorchester Ellipse.
