A WETHERSPOON pub in Weston is to host a 12-day real ale festival next week. 

The Cabot Court Hotel, on Knightstone Road, will host a selection of 20 real ales, including three from overseas brewers in South Africa, Norway and Australia who have brewed in the UK. 

The featured ales will use only British-grown hop varieties. 

It will begin on Wednesday, October 12, and will close on October 23. 

All ales will cost just £2.10 a pint. 

A number of ales will also be available in the pub for the first time, including some brewed especially for the festival.

Pub manager, Kazi Musfaque, said: "The festival will allow us to showcase a selection of superb ales over a 12-day period and support the British hop industry too.

"The hop varieties include Jester, Fuggles, First Gold, Opus, Goldings and Godiver.

"The ales will be available at great value for money too."
