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.

While away a day rediscovering the charm of authentic Welsh pubs and unique real ales, without having to worry about who’s driving! The Wrexham bus based real ale trail runs twice a year, usually in April and September. Taking you to some of the best pubs, found in the villages dotted around Wrexham County. The route is always changing – new pubs and new ales are added to every trail, so there’s always something new to experience.

Great Pubs & Great Real Ale…

Wrexham Real Ale Trail takes you and your friends from the urban centre of Wrexham town out into the Welsh countryside to visit great rural pubs. Stopping off in some picturesque villages such as Bwlchgwyn, the highest village in Wales.

We hand select pubs on the trail based on their selection of Real Ale and hospitality. Each of the pubs has a unique atmosphere and if you’re staying for the whole day – and why wouldn’t you? – finding something to eat won’t be a problem either.

The route changes all the time. There’s always something new to experience on the trail.

So grab a friend and join the trail for a great day out!

No worries about who’s driving, we’ve got it sorted!

We’ve organised the transport between pubs, so there no need for a designated driver, we’ve got it all sorted! Enjoy the best locally produced Real Ales, food and entertainment Wrexham has to offer with friends on the trail. Hop on and off the Real Ale shuttle buses as many times as you like between 11am and 10pm.

If Real Ale isn’t your thing, your still welcome on the trail! The pubs will be serving a range of drinks as usual alongside some specials Real Ales made especially for the day.

Tickets get you unlimited travel!

Over 50 Real Ales to try…

There will be a minimum of three real ales in each pub (with at least 50 ales on the whole trail) but if ale isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other drinks available and lots of atmosphere to soak up as well!

Any cider lovers won’t want to miss out on Wrexham’s Saith Seren, with its real cider, sourced locally from Rosie’s and Gwynt y Ddraig.

Supporting microbreweries

Wrexham is also home to microbreweries such as Magic Dragon Brewery (Brewed at The Plassey), Big Hand Brewery and Sandstone Brewery, which provide Real Ale to the pubs on the trail.

Iechyd Da!
