There’s a Reigate Beer Walk on the evening of Thursday 28 June (2018), one of a number over the summer months.
The walks – which feature a guided tour and the tasting of six local ales – are a collaboration by three Reigate ventures: Crumbs Brewing, Four Hops and Pilgrim Brewery.
Launched in April, the first two walks proved such a hit that more were added fortnightly in June and July.
Participants are taken through the rich brewing history of Reigate by Gavin Dulley, who also runs Reigate Ghost Walks.
The tour covers the early days of brewing in the town, to the mighty Mellersh and Neale – formerly on the corner of Bell Street and the High Street – and the more modern days of Pilgrim Brewery and Crumbs Brewing.
The history of pubs such as the Bell, the Bull’s Head and the Red Cross are also explored.
A call at Four Hops in West Street allows Morgan Arnell, founder of Crumbs Brewing, to talk about the three beers in the Crumbs range – which are all made using leftover bread from Chalk Hills Bakery.
The walk ends with a tour of the newly redeveloped Pilgrim Brewery, also in West Street, with a tasting of three of their ales.
Tickets (£20 per person), along with a list of all the dates, are available on the Reigate Beer Walk webpage.
