At the Sheffield beer and cider festival they use Beer tokens as payment. You swap your cash for £1 or 10p tokens at the cash desk on entry you can then pay for everything with these tokens. You get your change in 10p tokens. This makes it better for the staff as there is no money to deal with. Additional tokens can be bought from a desk in the hall if you run out.

This beer festival uses beer tokens like this :
