Cheltenham & Glos Beer Week – Fri 14th to Sun 23rd Sept

It’s that time of year again when we celebrate all things beer! Well why wouldn’t you? Cheltenham & Gloucester Beer Week (CGBW) returns for the third year running and runs across a ten-day period from 14th – 23rd September.

Friday 14th September – Gloucester Brewery Tap Takeover 
Join us and our very good chums from Gloucester Brewery as they take over our taps for the night. Plenty of sampling, coupled with the expertise from the team from Gloucester and your chance to match with some free tasters from our kitchen. Not to be missed. From 7pm onwards.

Saturday 15th 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! And all proceeds from the sale of our Dog Beer will go to Cheltenham Animal Shelter.

Sunday 23rd September – The Big Beer Inter Pub Challenge Quiz
Following its success last year, and the hotly disputed Exmouth win, we are returning with the Beer Beer Inter Pub Challenge Quiz between the Exmouth Arms and the Royal. 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. So, come along and show that the brains of Charlton Kings can reign supreme over those in the Bath Road. Make us proud! (£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.
