How it works
If you fancy a beer with friends, sampling ales from rural pubs presents ale fans with a major problem: who’s going to do the driving? Not to worry. The award-winning Real Ale Trail will take you by bus to sample some fantastic pubs and one special microbrewery with over 50 local ales to sample, you will surely find something you’re going to like very much.
Festival goers are taken through the lanes of glorious countryside and off the beaten track to reach some of the best pubs in Cheshire selected for their hospitality, rural location and selection of ales. The event picks ale fans up and transports them to the pubs on the trail every half an hour from 11am to 10pm and you can start and finish anywhere on route. Buses arrives every 45ish minutes and circulates around the pubs all day.
If you’re staying for the whole day and why wouldn’t you, finding good food won’t be a problem either as all of the pubs specialise in a great standard of food with Rising Sun & Bulls Head offering special menus to enjoy with your pint.
On the 4th April, the Cheshire Real Ale Trail will visit 7 pubs and one special microbrewery, specially chosen for hospitality, atmosphere and of course their selection of real ales.
