Real ale festival fans have a bit of multiple choice this weekend.

There are showcases in Marsden, Barnsley and Sheffield.
Today sees the start of The Kelham Island Tavern Beer Festival on Russell Street, Sheffield.

The multi-award winning pub promises 30 plus new and rare beers over the course of four days, plus a selection of cider and perry. Looks like it starts at noon. I'm hoping to go tomorrow to sample some and to do a review.

While at 7pm tonight The Riverhead Brewery Tap in Marsden is showcasing its own range until closing time this Saturday. A new beer will also be unveiled on Saturday.

All the information you need is on the the festival and beer list posters, please click on them to enlarge.

The Summer 100 event at The Anglers' Rest, Wombwell, will highlight the handiwork of father and son team Pete & Harry Geeves.
There will also be a selection of guest ales and Yorkshire ciders, and outside bar, food and acoustic music.

The pub is on Park Street, about a mile from Wombwell train station. Catch the 200 bus to the centre of Wombwell and get off at the library stop on Station Road. It's a short walk from there. Alternatively, The Anglers' Rest is well served by the 222 or 226 buses from Barnsley Interchange, which stop right outside.

Just to advise anyone who may be in the area that the Bhurtpore (http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/61339/) festival runs 02-07July, claiming 130 ales & 150 belgian/german bottles, plus perry & cider.
I'd leave more than 12mins(!) if you are catching a train back though!
