The organisers of Haslemere Beer Festival are launching a new initiative to promote the pubs of Haslemere.

They are producing a leaflet for walkers starting at Haslemere Station that will suggest routes to visit pubs in Haslemere town centre, Wey Hill, Shottermill and Hammer Vale and provide information about them and the route between them.

The leaflet will be downloadable from Haslemere Visitor Information Centre’s website and can be used alone or in conjunction with the series of other walks already listed on their site covering the local area It will also be available from Haslemere Beer Festivals website .

Simon Labrow, founder of Haslemere Beer Festival explained “Our beer festival held each September at Haslemere Hall was originally started to support local businesses that supported real ale and craft beers as well as bringing the community together. We now want to extend this all year round by encouraging people to enjoy the area on foot and visit some of our local pubs as they do. We have a wide selection of pubs to suit all tastes, with many offering excellent food and live entertainment too.”

The Walking Festival takes place over the weekend of 14th to 16th July, and the Haslemere Ale Trail will be officially launched at midday on Sunday 16th July at Haslemere Station.

Updates will be published by Haslemere Beer Festival on Facebook, Instagram and its website

Haslemere Beer Festival takes place on 1st & 2nd September at Haslemere Hall. It will showcase more than 50 Real Ales, Craft Beers & Ciders along with live music in the evening sessions.
