Flintshire’s third Ale Trail planned for April

FLINTSHIRE’S popular Real Ale Trail will be back again this spring.

This will be the third time the bus-based beer festival takes place.

On April 28, four shuttle buses will operate four times an hour at each pub between 11am and 11pm.

Eight pubs will be en-route providing a variety of real ales, food and entertainment.

Pubs taking part in the festival include the Gold Cape in Mold, the Blue Bell Inn, Halkyn, where there will also be folk music in the evening, the Crown in Lixwm, the Black Lion, in Babell, where there will be folk music in the evening, The Piccadilly in Caerwys, The Royal Oak in Caerwys, the Pwll Gwyn in Afonwen and The Oak in Hendre.

Previous Ale Trail events have brought more than 1,000 extra drinkers into the county from cities across the UK, including London and Brighton, who visited Flintshire specifically for the festival.

The event, organised by the Flintshire Tourism Association, was designed with the goal of supporting the county’s rural pubs.

Tickets for the trail are available from participating pubs and can be bought in advance or on the day.
