Amsterdam’s most celebrated pub, In De Wildeman, has held its first Castle Rock beer festival – and the thirsty locals and tourists drank all 72 gallons within 60 hours of their arrival from Nottingham. The delivery included Harvest Pale, Black Gold, Elsie Mo and Screech Owl.

Castle Rock chairman, Chris Holmes, was among the first to test the newly settled beers and described it as ‘amazing’ that the Harvest Pale cleared and was raring to be supped within two hours of being placed on the bar.

In De Wildeman is twinned with both the Lincolnshire Poacher and the Victoria Hotel, Beeston.
