GLASSES were clinking and the beers were overflowing on the North-West yesterday for Devonport's first ever Beertober.
The family-friendly event at Roundhouse Park featured 40 beers and ciders, including the first sale of the new James Squire ale The Constable, as well as cooking demonstrations.
Home brewers also had the chance to have their samples judged to see who produced the best beer.
Event manager Cam Wilkins said before the event that he wanted to make it an annual fixture.
Railton's Seven Sheds played host to a similar Oktoberfest-style event at its brewery, which it has held for a number of years.
Co-owner Catherine Stark said well over 200 people attended the free event, tasting four beers on tap, ciders and wine from the White Rock Vineyard.
``It's been a good day, probably the best we have had,'' Ms Stark said.
