CHESHIRE
REAL Ale Trail

Postponed – All tickets purchased will be valid for future dates.

An important message from Real Ale Trail Company

Recognising the ongoing and increasing uncertainty of coronavirus, it seems likely that the UK government will follow other authorities and suspend large public gatherings.

Our priority is, of course, the health and well-being of our guests, pubs and drivers. It is now beyond our control and the event is postponed until the summer.

What does this mean for you?

When this global outbreak diminishes, we plan to run the trail in the summer instead. This is a challenging time, but we do know one thing, people getting together over a beverage is core to our existence. We plan to return stronger than ever in the summer and give people a reason to attend the trail when the time is right.

If you have bought a ticket for the trail it is valid for the summer event.

AWARD-WINNING REAL ALE TRAIL IS RETURNING TO CHESHIRE IN 2020!

We are bringing our award-winning Real Ale festival to great rural pubs in Cheshire. This one day moving Real Ale festival takes you to hand-selected Real Ale pubs dotted around the Cheshire countryside by shuttle buses that circuit all day long, so there’s no need for a designated driver. The pleasure of the festival is certainly being able to new explore pubs ales and food you’ve never tried before all without the worry of driving.

TAKING THE SCENIC ROUTE TO REAL ALE…

Rediscover the charm of the quintessential English country pub, without needing a designated driver!

The brewing industry is diverse. Whether it’s cask or keg, real or craft ale the choice for the discerning beer drinker has never been better and we know they are best served in a pub!

There’s no better area to explore this diversity than in Cheshire which boasts an array of independent brewers concentrating on producing beer for taste, not volume. Just one thing stands in the way of an ale drinker and his pint in the countryside… a designated driver. We organise the transport so you can enjoy a variety of pubs and real ales.

ALL ABOARD!

Enjoy a day out with friends without needing a designated driver! Our dedicated buses arrive every 45 minutes at each pub to pick you up and drop you off between 11am and 10pm, giving you the freedom to stay as long or as little in each pub.

Find out more about how the trail works here!

Stopping at  Holmes Chapel and Congleton, as well as other smaller villages like Goostrey and Astbury. Keep an eye on our social media for the latest on participating venues.

Each pub is chosen for its hospitality, atmosphere and of course selection of Real Ale, usually brewed by local microbreweries! Each pub has a minimum of 3 Real Ales to try, with up to 50 Real Ales to sample on the day.
