Ales brewed by a Drinkstone nanobrewery will be available in the village tomorrow as part of Camra's (Campaign for Real Ale) cask ale week.

Colin Field, whose Drinkstone Ales nanobrewery launched in May, is showcasing his bitter and strong ales at Drinkstone Village Hall from 12-6pm.

Visitors will be able to sample and buy real ale, all they need to do is take cash and a container to take some away.

"I'm supporting Camra's cask ale week, where they have asked brewers to open their doors," said Colin.

"I brew from my house, so I have hired the village hall for a brewery open day, where I'll have two of my ales available as well as an exhibition about what we do."

Colin, 56, spent years perfecting his recipes, which have already proved very popular since Drinkstone Ales launched.

They are available at Rattlesden Five Bells, the Gladstone Arms in Combs Ford, can be tasted in Thurston Butchers' pies and will soon be at Oakes Barn, in Bury St Edmunds.
