All hail the Real Ale!

Real Ale GuideThe nights are drawing in folks, autumn’s well and truly here. So find a cosy local and enjoy a quality beer! (here, here!)

OK, so I’m no poet – but thanks to our new Real Ale Guide, I am now well-versed in where to find some tongue-tingling brews across the Dudley Borough.

Ahhh, nothing beats the ‘Golden Glow’ of a pint by the ‘Fireside’ in a proper Black Country pub!

And this is the perfect companion to take with you…

Our brand new Dudley Borough Real Ale Guide will be delivered to libraries, visitor attractions and accommodation providers later this month, where you’ll be able to pick up a copy. Or, if you can’t wait any longer, it’s ready to download now, here!

Let us tempt you with the tastes of breweries near and far.

Savour the flavour of some Mellow Yellow, Saxon’s Gold or Red House Mild. Try a Town Crier, Worcester Sorcerer or Mud City Stout. Or, how about a Sedgley Surprise or Bumble Hole Bitter?

There’s something on tap for all tastes from the Real Ale experts. Enjoy featured and guest ales from Craddock’s, Olde Swan, Black Country Ales, Batham’s, Hobson’s, Sadler’s, Sarah Hughes, Enville, Salopian and Kinver Breweries – and more!

The guide also gives you the low-down on the serving establishments. As well as sharing the ales they serve, it offers handy tips on how to find them, a description of the pub and a quick-check key showing whether they serve food, are family friendly, offer accommodation, have disabled access, car parking, wi-fi etc.

In fact, with so much choice and information at your fingertips, there’s no reason why you should settle at one cosy local. Embark on a Real Ale trail and try them all! Just, maybe not all in the same night…

The guide has been produced by Dudley & South Staffs and Stourbridge & Halesowen CAMRA, campaigners for Real Ale, and Tourism Development at Dudley Council.
