How It Works

  1. Order a pint or half of real ale (a LocAle if available) in a participating pub and ask to have your form stamped.
  2. Collect at least ten stamps on a Trail to qualify for the prize of a T-shirt. There are different coloured shirts for each Trail, so you can enter one, two or three forms as you wish.
  3. Send your entry, by 31 May, to Ale Trails, 9 Willingham Road, Over, Cambridge, CB24 5PD or hand your form(s) in at the Membership Stand at the Cambridge Beer Festival (21 26 May)
  4. Anyone visiting all the pubs on all the Trails will go into a draw for a very special prize.
In addition to taking part in these trails, you might wish to score your beers at the National Beer Scoring System.
