Every August bank holiday The Barrels in Hereford holds a charity beer festival, it has done so for 25 years.

In its 25th year visitors enjoyed 6000 pints of excellent beers from various British brewers, including Herefordshire’s very own Wye Valley Brewery, and 1000 pints of local cider.

The beer festival is run by volunteers and benefits local Charities, in their 1st year they raised £1,000, and in their 25th year they raised a record £25,000, a huge amount over inflation!

In particular, the festival donated £1,500 to The Mayors chosen charities, which are The Breast Cancer Haven and Robocap, a state-of-the-art robotic technology treatment for prostate cancer.

Over the last 25 years The Barrels Charity Beer Festival has raised in excess of £350,000.
