Reigate’s Pilgrim Brewery is inviting beer lovers to take an “Ale Trail” of nine Reigate and Redhill pubs during March (2018).
Participants can pick up a trail passport and map from any of the pubs, or the brewery’s Tap Room in West Street.
They can then call into each of the pubs, obtaining a passport stamp as well as purchasing a pint of Progress – the brewery’s flagship beer – or any other Pilgrim brew.
After visiting all the pubs, a final stamp can be obtained from the Tap Room, along with a free souvenir Ale Trail t-shirt.
The trail runs 1st – 31st March. The brewery says:
“It’s a great way to visit old favourites and discover new pubs in and around the area enjoying locally brewed beer whilst supporting fantastic small family run businesses.”
Pilgrim is reminding people to drink responsibly, and adds:
“The Ale Trail is all about enjoying yourself, it doesn’t have to completed in any particular order or done in one day.
Take your time, meet your mates and discover new pubs.”
Participating venues are:
- The Black Horse (Reigate)
- The Admiral Inn (Reigate)
- The Blue Anchor (Reigate),
- The Red Cross (Reigate),
- The Hatch (Redhill),
