Why not join our Summer Ale Trail for 2018, which is launched on Sunday 27th May and runs from Monday 28th May until Sunday 30th September

Commemorating the Centenary of
when British women were first allowed to vote
(well, some of them anyway)

Obtain your free passport – which looks like this – at the Launch or from one of the participating pubs.
Votes for Ale

where you can collect your free Passport to the Trail, is at The Schooner Inn in Southwick (146 Albion Street, Southwick, Brighton BN42 4AU – take a No.700 'Coastliner' bus, or a train to Southwick station)
on Sunday 27th May from 7.30pm.
All welcome. Please note there is a 10% discount on real ale for CAMRA members showing their valid membership card, and a free buffet.

WITH YOUR PASSPORT in hand, you visit 20 out of the 38 pubs in the Brighton & South Downs area (over a period of up to four months) and get a stamp in it when you buy a pint of real ale or cider (fuller details are in the Passport). Then exchange it for the 2018 Ale Trail T-Shirt.
Or if you manage 30 pubs, you get a Polo shirt or a Sweatshirt.
Or if you manage all 38 pubs, you get a T-shirt PLUS a Polo or Sweatshirt.
Cider enthusiasts can buy half-pints of real cider, and get a 'Cider Rider' T-shirt.

There is also one ALE TRAIL BUS TOUR on Saturday 28th July 12 noon, which takes you from Brighton to five outlying pubs which might be difficult to reach otherwise:
The Cock Inn, Wivelsfield Green
The Crown Inn, Newick
The Five Bells. Chailey Green
The Hope Inn, Newhaven
The Laughing Fish, Isfield
(not necessarily in this order). Tickets £15 (includes a sandwich lunch) are available at Launch Night, or by post, details in the Passport.
. If you can't get to the Launch Night, passports should be available on request from any pub taking part, while stocks last.
