Cheltenham & Glos Beer Week – Fri 15th to Sun 24th Sept

Following on from the success of the very first Cheltenham Beer Week last year, this year the event returns and we include our friends in Gloucester this year. The Cheltenham & Gloucester Beer Week (CGBW) will run across a ten-day period from 15th – 24th September with the purpose of celebrating beer, the fast growing brewing industry and our fabulous pub culture. Of course once again, we’ll be part of it!

Saturday 16th September – Barking Mad Ale Trail
We will once again join up with our sister pubs; the Exmouth Arms and the Strand, for our very own Barking Mad Ale Trail.  Visit each of the three pubs and complete some fun challenges (the ‘Mad’ part) and buy a half pint of beer.  Along the route between the pubs pick up some fiendish (not really) clues, then finish back where you started and you’ll be rewarded with a gold star and a smile and go on then; a free pint of beer! You’ll also be entered in to our prize draw to win some great giveaways including a meal for two. The ‘Barking’ bit? Bring along your dog and he/she will be rewarded with a bottle of dog beer especially for them!

Thursday 21st September, 7pm – Beer & Dine Night with Purity Brewing Co.
Join us for a dining experience with a difference! Enjoy 5 delicious courses each superbly paired with a beer from Purity Brewing Co. Plus soak up the expert knowledge from our good friends at Purity. The price is £30 and pre-booking with a £5 deposit is required. Numbers are limited so book early to secure your place. Click here to take a look at the menu.

Sunday 24th September – The Big Beer Inter Pub Challenge Quiz
Our usual Sunday Quiz will take a turn for the beerter! Yes questions will all be centred on glorious beer in all its forms, drinking and pubs. Oh, but there’s more! You’ll not only be competing against other quizzers in the Royal, but those players in the Exmouth Arms too. The team who scores the most points across the two pubs takes home all of the beer related prizes and gains the winning pub the bragging rights. (Usual £1 entry fee per person, teams up to 6 people, and nibbles provided at half-time).

All of this plus throughout Cheltenham & Gloucester Beer Week there will always be at least two Gloucestershire Ales on our bar and we will feature our special Royal Beer Burger for just £10.
