The 6th annual mobile beer festival in Wales is again ready to hit the road again using the larger bus company and operating larger buses with the new simpler route on a one way system. Last year this averted the problems previously experienced, the main difference this year is the introduction of a clockwise direction route enabling the transport to operate satisfactorily.
Each of the ten Denbighshire pubs taking part has a bus stop conveniently placed outside and a special bus service is being laid on to transport punters between them. On Saturday, July 13, the annual Vale of Clwyd Festival of Real Ale and Cider will give people the opportunity to choose from a selection of approximately 60 different real ales and 12 ciders.
They’ll be able to taste everything from a Purple Moose to a Rosies Cider and alongside famous brews like Young’s and Theakstons will be ales from Conwy, Wrexham and Flint and even cider from Llandegla.
GHA coaches will service the pubs in an clockwise direction taking in the Kinmel Arms, White Horse and Golden Lion in Llandyrnog, Golden Lion -Llangynhafal, White Horse -Hendrerwydd, Griffin -Llanbedr DC, Three Pigeons - Graigfechan, White Horse - Llanfair, Drovers Rhewl and the Kings Head Llanrhaeadr will all be serving food with music and activities.
