Apologies to all those who were on the starting line for Swansea Camra’s new Ale Trail, but the event launch has been put back a week, owing to a delay in delivery of the Ale Trail booklets.
We are hoping to launch the 16-pub trail next Monday instead, September 19, but we’ll keep you posted. Please spread the word and, in the meantime, you can read all about the event below.
Swansea Campaign for Real Ale is launching a new event to encourage pub goers to visit the increasingly large number of real ale pubs in the area.
Some 16 local pubs have signed up to take part in the event, which will take place over ten weeks in the autumn.
“There are many excellent pubs serving a wide variety of cask ales in the Swansea area, so as part of our quest to promote real ale and support local pubs, we are launching the Swansea Ale Trail,” said chairman Colin Smith.
“We are inviting pub goers to take part, and 16 pubs are ready to welcome you. All you have to do is visit at least 12 of them between 19 September (TBC) and 25 November to win a prize.”
Pick up a booklet in any of the pubs and get it stamped when you buy at least a half of real ale or cider. When your booklet is full, send it off to Camra to claim your prize.
Twelve stamps will get you an Ale Trail T-shirt and all 16 stamps will also get you entered into a prize draw to win a slap up meal for two at The Woodman or a brewery trip for the winner and three friends.
Participating pubs are:
Queen’s Hotel – Swansea, No Sign Bar – Swansea, Westbourne – Swansea, Village Inn – Killay, Railway Inn – Killay, Greyhound – Oldwalls, Dolphin Inn – Llanrhidian, Welcome to Town – Llanrhidian, Woodman – Blackpill, Plough & Harrow – Murton, Joiner’s Arms – Bishopston, Valley – Bishopston, Victoria Inn – Mumbles, Park Inn – Mumbles, Mumbles Ale House, Pilot Inn – Mumbles.
