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.

 

The tour 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.

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).
