Mayor of Grantham , Frank Turner, was the guest of honour at Grantham Railway Club on Wednesday for the opening of the Grantham CAMRA Beer Festival.
Coun Turner was given the honour of pulling the first pint at the beer festival, which will continue today and tomorrow from 11am until 11pm.
Organisers of the festival expect there will be more than 30 different beers to choose from at the start of the festival and urge people who want to taste a wide range to arrive early while stocks last.
The festival is free to CAMRA members while members of the public pay £2 on the door.
