Revellers knocked back around 10,000 pints of beer and cider at Nailsea’s friendly festival last weekend.
Nailsea and Backwell Beer and Cider Festival was a huge success with more than 5,000 people of all ages visiting across the three days to enjoy more than 160 different beers and ciders as well as gin, Pimm's and prosecco.
The event took place at Nailsea and Backwell Rugby Club and festival-goers also enjoyed live music while they sipped their chosen tipples.
Beer festival chairman Paul Turner said: "It was absolutely brilliant.
"We had fantastic weather and everything during the festival went smoothly.
"I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone involved in the organisation of the event and to all our sponsors.
"There was also a fantastic community spirit.
"Thanks to everybody who made the last two hours a fantastic community performance."
Since the first festival in 2004, the event has raised £120,000 for charities.
Money from this year's event will go to the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC).
