The Lynd Cross, Horsham, is offering customers the rare chance to try ten beers from the US, as well as 35 from the UK, at a festival running from October 16 to October 31.

The imported beers - from California; Georgia; Massachusetts; and Oregon - reflect a growing trend for craft brewed beers in the US.

The US beers are; Sgt Pepper (Cambridge Brewery); American Bitter Red (21st Amendment Brewery); Even Keel (Ballast Point Brewery); Cream Ale (Ninaski Brewery); Sunshine Daydream (Fat Heads Brewery); Extremely Self-Conscious Ale (Stone Brewing Co); Tree Hugger (Terrapin Brewery); Restoration Pale Ale (Abita Brewery); IPA (Harpoon Brewery); and Avatar Jasmine IPA (Elysian Brewery).

The UK beers include; Pumpkin Ale (Everards); Poltergeist Porter (Caledonian); World’s Biggest Liar (Jennings); Half Nelson (Thwaites); Hazelnut Brownie (Batemans); Wild Cat (Exmoor); and The Abbot’s Confession (Greene King).

Customers can sample any three of the real ales in a 1/3 pint glass for the price of a pint.

Manager Donovan Holmes said: “The craft beers from the USA have never before been available in cask form in the UK, which makes them even more special.

The festival will be the perfect way for real ale enthusiasts to enjoy a range of excellent beers.”
