Celebrating it's 40th year with a beer and a smile, the Cambridge Beer Festival promises five days of the finest alcohol that can be had. Expecting well over 41,000 lovers of that amber nectar of the gods, 82 pubs around the city are opening their doors to the massive influx of tourists as the event continues until June 16th.

Organisers of Cambridge Beer Festival are hoping for a record-breaking year as they mark its 40th anniversary.

Last year more than 41,000 ale and mead lovers flocked to the five-day CAMRA event on Jesus Green.

But this year’s weather could see a drop in numbers as temperatures fall.

Bert Kenward, organiser, said: “I don’t think we will quite make the same numbers as last year just because the weather was so good and it is a bit different this year but you never know. We did have some problems with queuing last year but we are the victims of our own success and hopefully it will all go smoothly this year.”

Meanwhile, a brewery will be serving up its award-winning ale at the festival - and has announced it will include 82 pubs on its ‘ale trail’ in and around the city this summer.
