The first ever Saints’ Beer and Folk Festival near Ipswich waterfront was so successful over the bank holiday weekend that the venue was drunk dry!
Organiser Greg Cooper from Beer & Co said the event had been more successful than he could have hoped and he was already starting to think about repeating the event next year.
Hundreds of drinkers had visited St Peters at the Quay for the event – and the folk music session on Friday night had been very successful.
Mr Cooper said: “It was a wonderful weekend and we sold out of beer by the end. We shall certainly be repeating this alongside our other festivals in the town.”
There are a number of themed festivals planned for the area, with the next major event being the Maritime Beer Festival in August.
