Dozens of people toasted a new event in the Ponteland calendar.
The first Ponteland Rugby Club beer festival took place on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon and evening.
The first day was set aside for current and former players and the second was open to the public.
More than 30 beers, a selection of lagers, wines and a cider bar were available, as well as flavoured sausages to give the event a ‘bangers and beer’ theme.
There was also some live music.
