Beer enthusiasts drink Launceston festival dry
A ONE-DAY beer spectacular ended up as a tent with no beer – or cider for that matter – at Launceston on Saturday.
The festival, held in a marquee in Launceston's town square, sold out on Saturday five minutes before the end at 10.30pm.
Organised by local beer sommelier and owner of Penpont Brewery, Joe Thomson, the day was an opportunity for new and experienced beer enthusiasts alike.
With a host of local and national breweries involved, there were more than 30 different types of beer on tap, 25 cask ales and six beers on craft keg, as well as a selection of cider and imported bottled beer.

"It was really good, much better than I expected," said Joe. "We sold 2,500 pints of beer and 300 pints of cider. More than 1,000 people turned up, more than double what I expected, and we had a visit from the MP Dan Rogerson, while local councillor Alex Folkes helped behind the bar."
