The White Horse, on Parsons Green, London, is gearing up to present its 35th annual Old Ale Festival, from November 23-26.

This year the menu will feature the best of the old and the new, in terms of breweries and styles, so as well as as casks milds, porters, stouts and winter warmers, expect smoked beers, adjunct ales and barrel-aged imperial stouts — both cask and keg.

A spokesperson said: “Look forward to some familiar favourite old ales from Harveys, Adnams and the always first to sell out Long Man Old Man. On keg we’ll feature Lervig’s 3 Bean Stout, Fierce vs Brewdog’s collaboration Very Big Moose, and Garage Brewing Co’s No/Country Imperial Stout.

“Grab one of our fabulous sharing platters and a flight of each and argue into the night over whichever you champion!

“Ramping up from eight casks early in the week, with larger action kicking off on Thursday 23rd, you can expect to see between 40 and 50 beers covering a multitude of styles.”
