Ale Trail 2013 - coming soon!

Coming soon to a pub near you - the 2013 Ale Trail.

Visit 10 participating real ale pubs and win free entry to the 28th Colchester Real Ale and Cider Festival, a commemorative glass and a £10 beer card to spend at the festival.

Pick up a collector card from 28th April at any of the pubs below, buy a pint of real ale and collect your first sticker. Then just visit 9 others, purchasing a pint of real ale and collecting a sticker at each.  Bring your completed card to the festival and swap it for free entry, a festival glass and a £10 beer card to spend at the bar.

CAMRA promotes responsible drinking - don't visit all 10 pubs on the same day!
