ASBURY PARK - Beer lovers raised their glasses this weekend at the Asbury Park Beerfest.

The festival, held at Convention Hall on the boardwalk, allows patrons to sample different types of beers from around the world.

Organizers say the festival is a great way for beer enthusiasts to try new types.

The event also brings a crowd to the Jersey Shore during an otherwise slow winter season.
