Visitors to a town museum will be able to enjoy a beer as a popular festival returns for a landmark anniversary.

The Food Museum in Stowmarket is celebrating its 25th Festival of Beer and Brewing today from 5pm.

Audiences will be given the chance to try a range of real ales, craft beers and ciders, which has all been supported by Suffolk CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) members.

To mark the occasion, a special festival-exclusive beer is being produced by brewery Humber Doucy, in Bacton, inspired by the museum's latest exhibition Hedgerow.

There will be live music in the evenings and Q&A sessions that will feature local brewers answering beer-related questions.

The festival will be running over the weekend however the operating hours are slightly different on each day.
