Flintshire ‘Real Ale Trail’ set to take a Deeside detour.
Flintshire Real Ale Trail is set to take a Deeside detour in September as organisers add new pubs and a micro brewery to the route.
The Flintshire Real Ale Trail began 2010 and had previously followed a fairly tried and tested route featuring some of the counties more “out of the way” and rural pubs such as the the Royal Oak in Caerwys and the Crooked Horn, Brynford.
The new route launched for September’s trail will now take in three Deeside pubs, The Glynne Arms in Hawarden and the Plough on Aston Hill and the Offas Dyke Hotel Broughton plus the addition of Hafod microbrewery in Mold.
Other pubs on the September 9th trail include the Red Lion at Penyffordd, the Queens Head and Gold Cape in Mold.
“This trail is about introducing new pubs and new areas to locals and people from outside the area.
We get people attending from London Birmingham, Wirral, Anglesey, they come from all over the UK to enjoy our pubs and ale,” said Shelly Barratt Ale Trails Director,
Organisers have also promised the transport issues which blighted April’s event have been ironed out.
Many of those attending were left fuming due to transport issues with some people, who paid £10 per head for a bus to take them from pub to pub, saying they were left stranded waiting hours for them to turn up.
Shelly Barratt says;
“The bus company Llew Jones have worked hard with over the last couple of months to get the route well covered with buses.
Aprils trails was their first ever Ale Trail and they Realised they didn’t do their best job.
So they can’t wait to show the new travels plans more buses and quicker pick up times too.
It’s a new route and new pubs to experience, we’ve done the old route for 7 years and other pubs wanted to join but the route was too long for others pubs to ever join.
