Ale and hearty for beer festival
I F BEER is to England what wine is to France, then Broadstairs is the place to be for next week's beer festival at The Pavilion.
After last year's success, the seafront tavern will be hopping with ale fans for its a three-day beer bash.
Ramsgate Brewery Gadds, which just celebrated its 10th birthday, will be offering seven modern ales at the festival, with an ABV range of 3.7% to 6.2% Black Pearl.
The brewery was founded by Lois and Eddie Gadd in the back of a boozer on Ramsgate seafront back in 2002, until they purchased a big shed in 2006 to continue making fresh ales.
To celebrate the opening of our new offices in Canterbury and Whitstable we are offering 50% off our standard selling fees on production of this voucher.

Other new ales on show include the award-winning Adnams Brewery from Southwold in Suffolk, including Sole Star, a great-tasting ale with an ABV of 2.7%.
Another beer to cheer is the Oakleaf Brewery of Gosport's 5.5 per cent Indian Pale Ale.
Alongside outstanding ales, The Beer Festival will also offer fantastic live music from the cream of the local scene.
Kentish favourites The Jeff Barker Band, who have gained a huge following since they formed in 2009, will be playing on Friday at 8pm, blending together sounds from the 60s, 70s and Noughties contemporary swing music.
Playing energetic rock music, Thanet favourites The Bubble Band will headline Saturday with blues outfit Broken Biscuit.
An "open wired" session on Sunday starting at 1pm invites local musicians to play live music through the afternoon until 5pm.
Wristbands are £3 for the whole weekend and are now available to purchase at The Pavilion, Harbour Street, Broadstairs.
