REAL ale drinkers tucked into craft beers all the way from Hawaii.
As well as exotic brews, there were ales from across the UK and Europe for thirsty punters at the Portsmouth Beer Festival at the Guildhall.
Over three sittings on Friday night, Saturday daytime and Saturday evening, there were almost 3,000 people through the doors.
They enjoyed ales and cider while listening to some of the best local bands.
Organiser Ben Miles said: ‘It just goes to show people round here love real ale.
‘It’s had such a resurgence in the past few years. And the younger generation are really into it – guys and girls.

‘And it’s not just good for us. It’s good for pubs as well. We’re only here twice a year but it gets people trying lots of different drinks and seeking them out in pubs afterwards.’
There were more than 120 cask ales and 22 ciders on offer.
