Wyre Forest Real Ale Trail

Coming 14th September 2019

We are bringing our much-loved Real Ale festival to great rural pubs in the Wyre Forest specialising in local real ales. This one day moving Real Ale festival takes you to 8 hand-selected Real Ale pubs and one special microbrewery dotted around the Bewdley, Stourport, Kidderminster and surrounding countryside by shuttle buses that circuit all day long, so there’s no need for a designated driver.
