BY: Bro Radio News

Local charity Barry Round Table is set to host its first Barry Beer Festival later this month.

The registered charity, which is part of a national network of Round Tables across the country, raises money throughout the year to support local good causes, with the aim of making a difference to lives of Barry residents.

The Barry Beer Festival is the groups newest fundraiser, taking place at Barry Island Sports and Social Club on the 18th and 19th October.

The weekend will include beer from local breweries including Tomos a Lilford, Bang-On Brewery, VOG, Glamorgan Brewing and Escape Goat, alongside Brains Brewery and a wide range of locally produced gins.

The Bar at Barry Island Sports and Social Club will also have a range of ciders on sales over the weekend.

On Friday night visitors can enjoy live music from Andrew Farmer and local band the Point, who'll be playing their Rock, Pop + Alternative party covers.

On Saturday night, Davey Sheppard will start the evening before 12 Bore, who rocked Cadstock earlier this year will wrap up the weekend.

For those beer lovers, there is a chance to meet the brewer in a session on Saturday afternoon hosted by local Youtber Simon Martin. For £15, visitors will hear about the brewing process, the work of the breweries and sample various beers.

Local Beer YouTube star Simon Martin will host a Meet the Brewer Sessions, including a chat about the creation of his Barry Island IPA with Brains Brewery.

Barry Round Table Chairman Matt Davies said "Whether you love beer, gin or cider, this is a perfect opportunity to enjoy a few drinks, knowing that all of the money will go to local good causes."

"We'd like to thank the local community and businesses for their continued support and look forward to welcoming you to the first Barry Beer Festival."

Tickets to the Friday and Saturday night sessions are just £5, which include entry, live music and a re-usable cup. All money raised will go back to local good causes.
