As announced recently to our regular patrons, an
overnight Rail Ale Ramble is to take place on October 18th/19th
this year to the Cotswolds and will include, for a LIMITED NUMBER of
participants a visit to DONNINGTON BREWERY.
itself will be open to a greater number of participants but we have
just twenty places on the
Donnington Brewery visit element – other members will have time to
sample the pubs, tearooms and shops of Stow on the Wold. Donnington
Brewery is old and somewhat fragile – they don’t really want visitors
at all, so we’re so lucky to get this many people invited. It is possible
that we will manage a return visit later but do not know at the
moment. So we decided to initially ask our most loyal clients –
no, friends – first. This has been done by inviting those who
have longevity with Crookham and been on the most RARs (with those who
have been on many of our holidays included as well). A draw has
taken place to decide which of the applicants are successful. Two of
the 20 places are taken by Crookham Travel staff members so 18 names
were drawn. A further eight names were drawn as reserves. To join the
remainder of the tour, check the TOURS tab above which will link to
the details and booking forms when they are available shortly.
The successful applicants are:

Announcing RAR 171 "Going For A Burton"
Saturday 3rd October 2015
Our next Rail Ale Ramble is to Burton
on Trent, the home of British Brewing – it is also where the sole
remaining Burton Union System in commercial
use can be found. Marston's uniquely use this
system at their Albion Brewery. Even if you’re not that
impressed with the Marston's beers you’ve drunk
recently, a visit to their brewery is an absolute treat – it’s one of
the most fascinating sights in the brewing world!
However, that’s not all that’s on offer – we have chosen this
date because the Burton SIBA Beer Festival is being held this weekend
at the National Brewery Centre.
This great day out will include a visit to Marston's
brewery, transfer to the Beer Festival and entrance to the
Festival. We can also provide train tickets from London (but
please book quickly as the cheap fares sell out rapidly).
