The 23rd East Anglian Beer Festival launched on Wednesday, bringing the very best of local beers to the Apex in Bury St Edmunds.

Event organiser Chrisy Roden said the event, which runs until Sunday , had something for everyone.

She said: “We have 94 beers and ales in total, all of them from East Anglia.
“We also have around 15 ciders from the area, too.

“We have lots of variety here - we have hoppy beers, dark ones, light ones - you name it, we’ve got it.

“I think the brewing business is doing pretty well in the area, there are quite a few micro breweries starting up.

“And this year is the first time we have some colour in our pint glasses.

“We thought we would celebrate St George’s Day by putting an English flag on it.”
