Wirral is probably least known for its pubs or its centuries old brewing history. That’s all set to change this Saturday June 4th when hundreds of Ale lovers flock to the Wirral this weekend to experience over 50 unique real ales in ten of the Wirral’s quirkiest pubs with absolutely no worries about who is driving.
From a traditional seaside location to rural countryside pubs the ‘Real Ale Trail ’ shuttle buses drives festival goers through the lanes of glorious countryside to reach carefully selected pubs known for their style, ambiance and their support of local dynamic micro breweries.
All that’s expected of people is sit back enjoy the hospitality and entertainment and sample the local ales and food.
You can start and finish anywhere on the route and tickets are available from any of the participating pubs; £10 in advance and £12 on the day. Buses arrive every hour to each pub and are on a circuit from 11am to 11pm.
‘With lots of choices to eat and drink makes it difficult for independent pubs to stand but by joining events like the Ale Trail it encourages locals and visitors to discover pubs they have never visited before, with the aim that they will come back on their own steam one day.’ Steve Peerless Brewery
Real Ale Trails was created 7 years ago in North Wales to help save village pubs from closure by introducing new people to venues to eat and drink with resounding success.
