A TWELVE DAY beer festival is coming to Dunfermline next month.

"The hop varieties include Jester, Fuggles, First Gold, Opus, Goldings and Godiver. The ales will be available at great value for money prices."

The festival beers on offer are Jester from Green Jack Brewery, Rebel Flame from Shepherd Neame Brewery, All the Leaves are Brown from Brewster's Brewery, Bonkers Conkers from Greene King Brewery, Hoptober from Coach House Brewer, Kaleidoscope from Lancaster Brewery,Victory Ale from Batemans Brewery, Autumn Amber from Mad Giant Brewery in South Africa, Rav from Telemark Bryggeri in Norway and Wungong from Nowhereman Brewery in Australia.

All of these will be on offer for £1.99 a pint. For those looking to immerse themselves in the beer tasking, they can bag three one-third-of-a-pint festival ales for the price of one.

A festival booklet will be available in store, on the app and on the Wetherspoons website which includes the tasting notes for all of the festival ales, all of which will be available to order at the bar on on the Wetherspoons app.
