Beer connoisseurs will be back in Ilkley today and tomorrow to sample real ales, ciders and perrys at the annual Ilkley Beer Festival.

More than 100 beers, from breweries in Yorkshire, Lancashire, Lincolnshire, Cheshire, Sussex, Cumbria, Suffolk, Oxfordshire, Shropshire, Cornwall, Scotland and Wales are expected at the festival, along with a selection of ciders and perrys.
