What is the Real Ale Trail?
The Real Ale Trail is a bus-based ale event where a bus chauffeurs you all day through spectacular countryside to rural pubs. Every 40ish minutes a bus will appear at each pub on the trail to ferry you to the next pub.
We make a beeline for quirky, off the beaten track and hidden pubs – you may well never have heard of or visited before – where real ale and great hospitality is their passion.
The Real Ale Trail is a story about friendship, and how a pint of ale can bring friends together to share in good old belly laughter whilst exploring pubs and ales you’ve never tried before… without the worry of organising the driving.
