Ale Trail 2016 … another FIRST for Faversham Food Festival: the “Ale Trail” … a great way to wander purposefully (!) through our lovely town.
Almost 150 people bought the special commemorative glasses (collectors’ items, that’s for sure!) which came with a map showing all 12 entries for this year.
It was fabulous to hear and see people strolling around town – locals and visitors alike – chatting, strolling and drinking amiably together. Faversham at its best
This year’s entries were, in no particular order:
Hop Festival Ale, from Shepherd Neame – at The Anchor
Landlord, from Timothy Taylor – at The Phoenix Tavern
Snow Top, from Old Dairy – at Abbey Physic Community Garden
