The Ale Trail event, which his is supported by the Rochdale Business Improvement District (BID), CAMRA and the Council welcomed visitors, who enjoyed sampling award winning ales as part of the ale trail. Venues taking part in the ale trail were the Cask and Feather, The Baum, The Regal Moon, Vicolo Del Vino, The Medicine Tap and the Flying Horse.
Chris Riley, who manages The Regal Moon said: The turnout was brilliant. Loads of new faces. Stamped loads of ale trail cards and spoke to customers who said they’d travelled from as far a field as Hull. The fact that we showcased our town in such a fantastic light will only increase footfall going forward.
Paul Ambrose, BID Manager for Rochdale Town Centre, said: "In a few short years, Rochdale town centre has become a true destination for beer lovers across the country.
"While each of the pubs and bars offers something unique to their visitors, they all share the foundation of what makes them great - a warm and welcoming atmosphere, excellent service and a fantastic range of beers.
"The ale trail is the perfect way of showcasing these fantastic pubs and bars, and the feedback I have received from ale trailers has been overwhelmingly positive. I would like to thank Barton and Kendal Commercial and Roundtable Rochdale for sponsoring the event and I look forward to the ale trail returning in November.
