The Real Ale Trail was born in 2010 – the brain wave of the Flintshire Tourism Association! Whilst real ale enthusiasts have always visited Flintshire’s fantastic pubs with quality ales and foods… the problem was the designated driver couldn’t join in…
Due to the popularity of the event we needed “a bigger boat” to coin a phrase. We got more buses, regular stops and obviously more pubs. The rest, as they say, is history!
Our great pubs put on fantastic guest ales, home -cooked food and entertainment. What more do you want out of a day?
Exclusive RAT ale brewed especially for the day at all participating pubs. Minimum of 3 ales in each pub (50 ales on the whole trail)
