Award Winning Real Ale Trail by Bus sets to hit the ‘Vale and Cardiff’in April.

The popular Flintshire Ale Trail is adding a change to its usual bus routes and pubs across the north of county and will take their bus to Cardiff and the Vale.
The event enables revellers to visit a series of local pubs and special microbrewery via bus from 11am-11pm, with routes running every 30 minutes around the Vales best Real Ale watering holes without the worry of who’s going to be the designated driver!

The Ale Trail Co. started in 2010 as a tourism initiative to support rural independent pubs struggling to survive, so they provided the people and the pubs provided the hospitality, which has proved a massive hit in North Wales, hugely popular with drinkers of a certain age who still harbour fond memories of the days when every village housed enough hostelries. They’re also a brilliant way to get a few friends together for a fun day out, with very little planning required. So, grab some friends who are great company and make you laugh, board the bus with your ticket (singing is not compulsory but is encourage it).
Hop on and off the bus at any time from any pub.
The event starts at 11am till 11pm and will take you on a tour of special pubs yet to be announced soon!
The organisers take care of the transport, the pubs are taking care of the fine ales, food, and the hospitality. All you have to worry about is knowing where you’re meeting your friends!
