Cheers! Are you in our Portsmouth area beer festival gallery from over the years?

It might seem a world away at the moment but beer festivals across our area have been a regular fixture over the years.

Thousands of people have used the festivals – including in Portsmouth, Fareham and Portchester – to test out some new tipples and catch up with friends.

The News regularly sends photographers and reporters to cover these popular festivals, and we have a look back through the archive to find some of our favourite photos.

Are you pictured in our gallery? The photos were taken between 2004 and 2018.
