Albatross flies high with summer Beer Festival

Bexhill’s award winning Albatross RAFA Club served up an amazing selection of real ale from Sussex and further afield when it held a beer festival at the weekend.

The popular seafront club has a well deserved reputation for the range of craft beers it serves up and is currently celebrating after being named the best club in the country for beer by CAMRA (The Campaign for Real Ale).
