"All hail to the ale!" - Not exactly the words of a wise man, but certainly the truest words Al Murray, The Pub Landlord, has ever spouted.

And devotees to the Real Ale cause will be able to pay full tribute to the most glorious of real ales, ciders, perries and beers from around the world at the Great British Beer Festival 2010 in August.
