WITH something for everyone, hundreds of people raised a glass over the weekend as Dunfermline Beer Festival made a triumphant return.

Audiences enjoyed live music performances paired with a huge variety of beer, and gin, on Friday and Saturday at the Glen Pavilion.

There were more than 30 local cask ales on offer, including options from Stewart Brewing, The Ferry Brewery and SaltRock Brewing, as well as a Linlithgow Distillery gin bar.

Craig Smith, one of the organisers at Dunfermline Round Table, told the Press: "We had a good turnout, the feedback has been that it went well, the Saturday afternoon went really well: we were expecting it to be busier than normal, it is popular with the sessions we do, it's family-friendly and appealed to those who don't want to come at night."

Sights are already set firmly on next year, with Craig vowing the event would be "bigger and better" as they get "back on the horse" following a three-year break.

"The range of cask ales in Fife wasn't what it once was," he explained.

"Breweries are either going out of business, aren't doing festivals, or aren't providing cask ales.

"It is something to look at in terms of possibly going further afield, I am looking forward to getting public suggestions for next year."

Funds raised are yet to be counted but will go to "local businesses and good causes".

Craig added: "It is looking like a good amount for our first year back.

"It has taken a lot of planning and I would like to start planning for next year soon to make it bigger and better.

"Thank you to everyone for supporting the event, we'll be back!"
