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 organised by the Gloucestershire Craft Brewers – an association of local microbreweries – who are working together to promote beers produced here in the county.

While the credit crunch may well have added to the economic pressures facing Gloucestershire pubs, conscious consumers and discerning drinkers alike have become more and more interested in local produce – thanks in part to television shows such as River Cottage and regional campaigns by CAMRA – with a number of county pubs now proudly sporting the Gloucestershire Ale Trail sticker on their doors.

Participating pubs, listed below, will always have at least one Gloucestershire beer on tap – including Battledown Brewery’s smooth Saxon; Cotswold Spring Brewery’s flavoursome Olde English Rose; Festival Brewery’s refreshing Festival Bitter; Nailsworth Brewery’s traditional The Vicar’s Stout; North Cotswold Brewery’s strong Hung-Drawn-N-Portered; Severn Vale Brewing Company’s sparkling Dursley Steam Bitter; Stanway Brewery’s full-bodied Lords-a-Leaping; and Stroud Brewery’s fruity Five Valleys, for example.

Providing the perfect opportunity to seek out a home-grown tipple off-the-beaten-track, with around 40 establishments involved in the Gloucestershire Ale Trail it sure makes for one hell of a pub crawl!
