Fans could be toasting Palace’s survival with a pint of ale at this year’s CPFC Beer Festival.

The event, which is now in its fourth year is expected to be the biggest one yet since its inception in 2011.

More than 150 beers and real ciders will be on offer form independent brewers across the UK.

The event will be hosted in the Holmesdale Stand across three floors.

The CPFC Beer Festival has proved to be a popular event with ale drinkers from across the UK flocking to Selhurst Park to taste some top ales.

There will be performances from live bands, prize raffles, a meet and greet with the Crystal Girls and some special guest appearances.

The event is taking place on FA Cup Final day so fans can watch the game with a pint in hand.

Crystal Palace Football Club’s co-chairman, Stephen Browett, said: "Crystal Palace’s annual Beer Festival is the ultimate end of season party and last year 2000 people enjoyed a fantastic day out.

"The event is now in its fourth year and is recognised by ale drinkers up and down the country - a reputation that has allowed us to invite a host of new brewers to the table.

"If you haven’t attended one yet, then you are in for a treat! If you have, then you won’t want to miss it this year."
