Beer connoisseurs who turned out in force to sample real ale, cider and perry at Ilkley Beer Festival have helped organisers raise thousands of pounds for good causes.

The successful festival, organised by Ilkley Round Table, attracted more than 2,500 people at the Kings Hall and Winter Garden, Station Road, Ilkley, last weekend.

Over the four sessions, 18,000 pints were consumed, along with more than 3,500 plus pies and pasties.

2,500 raise a glass... and thousands for charity
