cheltenham & gloucester beer week, sept 15th to 24th
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!
We will continue to showcase the very best of Arkell’s and Donnington ales for CGBW, plus we’ll be serving up our special Exmouth Beer Burger, made with the delicious Arkell’s 3B, for just £10 for the duration of the event
On Saturday 16th September we will once again join up with our sister pubs; the Royal 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!
Join us on Thursday 21st for a very special Pie & Pint Night. Our super talented chefs have created a delicious Steak ‘n’ Ale Pie made with Arkell’s 3B which, when bought with a pint of ale will cost you just £10. It’s really starting to look like Thursday is the new Friday!
In traditional exmouth style we’ll be finishing off the week on Sunday 24th September with a quiz, but this isn’t just any quiz, oh no, this is the Big Beer Inter Pub Challenge Quiz! You’ll not only be competing against those in the exmouth, but those players in the Royal 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. Come on make us proud. (Usual £1 entry fee per person, teams up to 6 people, and nibbles provided at half-time)
