Bottoms up for thousands of drinkers at the Twickenham beer and cider festival

Richmond and Twickenham Times: Naked ladies beers by the fountains Naked ladies beers by the fountains

The 13th annual Twickenham Beer and Cider Festival was first port of call for more than 2,000 happy drinkers last weekend.

The event organised by the Richmond and Hounslow branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra) took place at York House over two and a half days.

During that time, people drank around 8,800 pints of cask beer and 750 ciders and perries.

The day was also the launch of Twickenham Fine Ales' newly bottled beer Naked Ladies.

It is the first time since the company's inception nine years ago that it has bottled its best-selling beer, which was named after the well-known fountains close to York House.

The festival began with the announcement of this year's Pub of the Year, with the Sussex Arms taking the much-coveted prize, just ahead of The Rifleman.

Two beers, Kissingate Brewery's Six Crows and Sussex and Leeds Brewery's Midnight Bell, tied for Beer of the Year.

This year’s catchphrase on posters, programmes, glasses is 'PINTS - CAMRA - ACTION!' in recognition of Twickenham Film Studios centenary this year.
