Gloucestershire Ale Trail guide

Join in on the Gloucestershire Ale Trail to find a host of Gloucestershire pubs serving local beer produced by the county’s craft brewers.

The Gloucestershire Ale Trail is an initiative that was organised by the Gloucestershire Craft Brewers – an association of local microbreweries – who worked together to promote beers produced here in the county.

It was originally thought up as a way of bolstering Gloucestershire’s real ale offering during the recession, but craft beer has experienced something of a renaissance over the past few years and there is now greater choice than ever for local drinkers – so you could say, the initiative has done its job!

Coupled with the fact that conscious consumers and discerning drinkers alike have also become more and more interested in local produce – thanks in part to television shows such as River Cottage and regional campaigns by CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale).

While the Gloucestershire Ale Trail is no longer being run as an initiative by the breweries, it still offers a great opportunity to shout about some of the establishments across the county who were involved and continue to pull pints of the very best real ale, including many from across Gloucestershire.
