The first official Ale Trail is being launched in Bury St Edmunds.

It features 20 of the town’s licensed premises and a special map and brochure is being produced giving information about all the participating venues.

It will be officially launched – and the trail declared open – on Monday, February 26, at the recently re-opened One Bull, on Angel Hill.

The Ale Trail was the idea of Our Bury St Edmunds director Heather Warren, who owns Oakes Barn pub, on St Andrews Street South. She’s worked closely with Our Bury St Edmunds business support and marketing officer Mike Kirkham to bring the concept to fruition.

Heather said: “As the proprietor of one of the town’s free houses I know that there is a growing interest in both real ale and craft beer. Bury St Edmunds has a great brewing heritage of course as the home of Greene King, but that’s only part of the story.

“The Old Cannon micro-brewery in the town is one of around 40 small breweries in the county and many beers brewed in Suffolk can be bought in Bury either in the retail trade or in some of our pubs. I’m delighted that the Ale Trail will give us a chance to showcase some of them.”

The launch is by invitation only but the brochure will then be available at pubs and bars throughout the town centre, the tourist information point at The Apex and to download from www.ourburystedmunds.com
