Welsh Beer Festival

Wales Flag

Beer lovers are in for a treat if they head to the smallest town in Britain, Llanwrtyd Wells in Wales, which will be hosting a 10-day beer festival in November. Various free houses in the town can offer 60 real ales, as well as some specialist beers. The festival begins with the ‘Real Ale Wobble’, when participants enjoy waymarked, non-competitive cycle riding over distances of 10, 15 or 25 miles daily. Those who have booked in advance receive tokens that they can exchange for free half pints of real ale at the checkpoints. The final weekend of the festival sees the ‘Real Ale Ramble’, where participants can take part of 10, 15 or 25 mile walks over farmland, forest tracks, paths and minor roads. There will also be an entertainment programme throughout the week with various artists providing a wide range to suit all tastes in the local hostelries in the evenings. There is still a great emphasis on the social aspect of drinking real ale in pleasant surroundings amongst good company. All visitors can be assured of a warm Welsh welcome from accommodation providers in Llanwrtyd Wells.
