Ale Amble – November @ Chepstow
Nov 20 @ 10:45 am – 6:46 pm

The November Ale Amble heads across the Severn to the border town of Chepstow.

We shall be getting the 10.45 train arriving at 11.26.  .  If you are coming from another area then we shall meet you in the Bell Hanger, (Wetherspoons),  9–10 St Mary Street (not far from the station).  Our train arrives at 11.26 so we shall see you shortly after that.  Norman from Cardiff/Bristol has just been to Chepstow and has kindly offered to guide us.  I am aware that the micro pub (Queen’s Head) doesn’t open until 5 pm – however on prior notice we *MAY* be able to get it to open earlier.  The train back will be 18.46 or 19.17 – I leave it to you.

Ale Amble – December @ Birmingham
Dec 17 @ 10:40 am – 6:30 pm

In a repeat of last year’s festive trip, the Ale Amble for December will be visiting Birmingham. It will include a visit to The Christmas Market and a warming Gluhwein, before heading to our usual favourite pubs. Beerwise, we’ll start in Purecraft (30 Waterloo Street), followed by the Wellington where we will meet Keith from Birmingham CAMRA who will show us a new place.

We will be getting the 10.40 train (arriving at New Street at 11.25) and the 6.30 pm back. We can meet you in Birmingham if you choose another train. Note advance tickets are cheaper than day returns so savings can be made by buying in advance. Please contact Veronica for further details.
