For among the multitude of real ales on offer at The Crooked Chimney in Lemsford throughout this week, a lager has been added to the list.
Budvar Budweiser has been imported from the Czech Republic especially for the event.
Landlord Colin Taylor explained: "We decided to serve Budvar as a way of encouraging lager drinkers to give something more like a real ale a try - as well as giving real ale experts the opportunity to try a craft lager with a cask ale pedigree.
You may also want to watch:
"Not many people realise that Budvar is actually the only craft lager approved by the Campaign For Real Ale (CAMRA), who are supporting the festival. Roger Protz (writer and real ale enthusiast) actually described Budvar as "the only lager that's not CAMRA shy!""
National Cask Ale Week runs from April 6 to 12, but The Crooked Chimney is extending its celebrations until the 18th April.
