After a successful first year, Reigate Beer Walks are back for 2019 and have three Saturday afternoons available to book in May, June and July, each offering a chance to learn about the town’s long brewing history and to try some local beers.

The itinerary is:

“- A guided walk by Gavin Dudley (of Reigate Ghost Walk fame) covering some of the history and interesting brewing stories from Reigate. Including the story of Mellersh and Neale – once the South East’s biggest brewer who used to be located in the town.

– A stop off at Four Hops Craft Beer Emporium for a tasting and talk from one of the founders of Crumbs Brewing, a new beer brand based in the town who make their beer using leftover bread from Chalk Hills Bakery on Bell Street.

– A tasting, talk and tour of Pilgrim Brewery on West Street in Reigate, Surrey’s oldest craft brewer.  You’ll get a fascinating insight into their classic brews as well as the new beers they’ve developed since the business was bought by two local Reigate residents in 2017.”

Dates are Saturday 11 May, 15 June and 6 July, all at 2pm.

Tickets and full details are available on the Reigate Beer Walk website.

The walk on Saturday 15 June will be a Father’s Day Special and will include a gift pack as well as extra pints from Four Hops or the Pilgrim Brewery taproom.
