THE Golden Cross Hotel in Bromsgrove is set to take part in Wetherspoon's real ale festival.

A selection of up to 20 British and Irish real ales will be available at the High Street pub during the 12-day event, which takes place Wednesday 20 to Sunday 31 October.

Beer fans can enjoy Black Sheep Monty Python's Dead Parrot, Wolf Lazy Dog, Rooster's Long Shadow, Thornbridge Shelby, Exmoor Wicked Wolf, Salopian Hop Twister, Bath Queen of Hearts, Bru Brewery Bru Brown Ale and Wadworth Sweet Molly.

Ales will be on offer suitable for vegans and vegetarians, as well as two gluten-free beers. There will also be a number of beers not previously served in the pub.

Pub manager Cassie Harwood said: "The festival is a great celebration of British and Irish ales.

"It will allow us to showcase an excellent choice of beers over a 12 day period at great value for money prices."

Tasting notes on all of the beers will be available in the pub and on the Wetherspoon app.
