A RANGE of up to 30 real ales, including five from overseas brewers, will be available at three Wetherspoon pubs in Hillingdon borough during a 12-day beer festival.

The Botwell Inn in Coldharbour Lane, Hayes, The Tichenham Inn in Swakeleys Road, Ickenham, and JJ Moons in Victoria Road, South Ruislip, will host the festival from October 11-22.

Among the beers are vegan (also suitable for vegetarians) and gluten-free selections. They will all cost £2.55 a pint.

The line-up includes Bunny Hop (Purity Brewery), Bohemian Pale Ale (Joe's Garage Brewery, Czech Republic), Average Joe! (St Austell Brewery) and Zulu Blonde (Zululand Brewery, South Africa).

Botwell Inn manager Sean O'Farrell said: "The festival is a great celebration of real ale. It also give our customers the opportunity to enjoy a number of beers which have not previously been served in the pub, including those from overseas."

Three third-of-a-pint tasters will also be available for the price of a pint.
