‘I know of fellow CAMRA club members from all over the UK; my pal Jimmy is coming from Scotland and arriving Friday night.
‘ I’m already in love with the Copper Street bar; I’ve been in every night since arriving in the town. It should be an amazing weekend for everyone.’ he finished.
Meanwhile, real ale fans from nearby towns, Weymouth and Yeovil, are expected to flock to the festival; Kevin Williams from Yeovil tells how his group have put a coach on to attend the festival. he said:
‘ We have arranged a jolly boys’ day out and going by coach; we love the Copper Street Brewery, and the owner certainly knows how to brew the finest ales; he’s so dedicated to the cause, clearly shown by his actions in buying the brewery when it was going to close.’
