Saturday 6th — Sunday 14th November
2010’s London Pubs week ran from Saturday 6th — Sunday 14th November.
CAMRA’s London branches joined forces to celebrate with six different ale trails (Click each area for a map of the 12 pubs involved): North, East, South East, South, South West and West London, with 12 pubs or clubs for you to visit in each to try a half pint, pint, a bottle or a take home container of a LocAle (a real ale brewed within a 30 mile radius of the pub/club).
Prizes were based on a points system: 1 point for visiting the pub/club, 2 if you had a LocAle, and 4 points for completing a trail of all of the 12 pubs/clubs.
You could cross over trails if you wish. Sambrook’s Brewery in Battersea, who sponsored the South London trail (The Wandle Trail) added an incentive of special
T-Shirts and other prizes if you visited at least 12 of the pubs that offer their ales.
The other prizes on offer ranged from single bottles to a day with the brewer, kindly donated
from many of the LocAle breweries in and around London and from some of the
pubs/clubs involved. For instance, Redemption Brewery sponsored the North
Certificates and prizes were also awarded to those who tried a
variety of LocAles - GLASS or Genuine London Ale Suppers Society.
Passports for all six ale trails were available in the participating pubs or you can Download the Ale Trails passport for London Pubs Week as a .pdf file (200KB) for full details.
