A nine-day local beer festival, at 14 Wetherspoon pubs, showcased 18 ales from breweries across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

The Portsmouth, Gosport, Fareham and Isle of Wight (PGFI) Festival took place in outlets in and around Portsmouth, Gosport, Fareham and the Isle of Wight, with ales on offer from Gosport based Oakleaf Brewery, Itchen Valley in New Alresford, Triple FFF in Alton, Portsmouth-based Irving & Co Brewers and Goddards Brewery in Ryde, Isle of Wight.

The participating pubs were: The Isambard Kingdom Brunel, The John Jacques, The Sir Alec Rose, The Sir John Baker, The Trafalgar and The White Swan (all in Portsmouth), The Crown Inn and The Lord Arthur Lee (Fareham), The Star (Gosport), The First Post
(Cosham), The Parchment Makers (Havant), The Lord Palmerston (Southsea), The William Coppin (Newport) and S. Fowler & Co (Ryde).
