Adam Johnson, organiser of the event said: “The rise of craft beer has been extraordinary and something we have fully embraced.

“We have five constant rotational craft beers and saw this as an opportunity to bring a whole new selection to Lincoln.

“We hope to also introduce craft beer to those that may not have felt it was something for them and give them the opportunity to try something new.

“I would definitely recommend the raspberry wheat beer from milestone brewery perfect for this weather.”
