DUNFERMLINE Beer Festival 2012 proved to be a resounding success last weekend as hundreds of revellers enjoyed themselves at the Glen Pavilion.
There was top-class music provided on both nights by Velour Amour superbly supported by Cut the Cake on Friday and No Alibi on Saturday.
This year some of the ales on offer had Fife connections including de Brus, Dunfermline's new beer, and there was a special tasting of the local brews during the Saturday afternoon session.
The event is organised for charity each year by Dunfermline Round Table and Dunfermline Rugby Club, while the Press is the media sponsor.
Round Table member and MP Thomas Docherty was serving behind the bar on Saturday.
He told the Press, "There was a very good crowd in on Friday night and on Saturday night it was bouncing.
"It was good to see so many people supporting the festival, having a great night out and with no hint of trouble that I saw.
"I think this year we calculated the amount of beers we needed almost spot-on.
"You don't want to be running out early or having to send back barrels so it worked out well this year.
"The amount of cider sold this year seemed to be way up. Strawberry cider in particular was very popular."
The organisers hope to have raised over the £20,000 mark again this year but it will be a few weeks before the final figure is known.
