Brigg Blog enjoyed an evening visit to the Brigg Beer Festival 2018 on its second day (Friday).
Plenty of folk did likewise to support Brigg District Lions, organising their 28th festival in the town.
The Barns behind the Nelthorpe Arms, off Bridge Street, provided the venue.
Many of those who attended did their best to work through the list of 20 real ales on offer.
Each token purchased at reception entitled you to a generous half-pint.
Favourite tipples included Azacca, from Lancashire's Wily Fox brewery, with notes of tangerine, mango and pineapple, and Vital Spark (Fynes Ales, Scotland) a dark ruby red brew with an aroma of berries.
We also sampled a cider from the eight available but didn't get as far as the Belgian bottled beer!
The festival's souvenir glass was suitably engraved to mark the local Lions' 50th anniversary.
Chief photographer David Haber dropped in to take some pictures  of people enjoying the festival on Friday night.
These will appear on and in the Social Diary section of the paper on sale from Thursday, May 17.

GONE! And time for another...
