Cask Ale Week kicks off next week (Thursday September 21 to October 1) and brewer Marston's has announced a raft of activity.

It's opening the doors at all six of its breweries and hosting events including a Fish, Chips & Ale Knees Up at Banks Brewery; Oktoberfest at Ringwood Brewery; classic Oxford fare paired with ales at Wychwood and guided tours at its newest brewery, The Eagle in Bedford.

"All our Breweries are gearing up for a busy week where we welcome everyone to enjoy our passion for the perfect pint," said director of brewing Emma Gilleland.

"It's the ideal time to try some new flavours and celebrate the great taste of one of the nation's favourite drinks."

Marston's has also produced videos for each brewery, which can be seen on the websites, highlighting the brewing process and some of the secrets behind its flagship brews.
