A DUMBARTON bar will feature ales from around the world as part of its 12-day beer festival.

The Captain James Lang will provide thirsty revellers with a range of real ales from overseas brewers during the event between Wednesday, October 11 and Sunday, October 22.

Beers from Canada, South Africa, the USA and the Czech Republic will all be showcased at the High Street boozer during the annual Wetherspoon celebration of ale.

A number of the beers have never been available before and will cost £2.45 a pint.

Three third-of-a-pint tasters will also be available for the price of a pint.

Pub manager Ryan Hegarty said: "The festival is a great celebration of real ale.

"It will allow us to showcase a selection of superb beers over a 12-day period, at great value for money prices.

"It will also give our customers the opportunity to enjoy a number of beers which have not previously been served in the pub, including those from overseas."

Among the festival collections are vegan (also suitable for vegetarians), and gluten-free beers.

Alongside this, as well as featuring a range of different malt and hop varieties from around the world, there are also beers that include vanilla and cherries in their ingredients.
