Thirty venues to feature in new Lincoln Ale Trail

A new Lincoln Ale Trail, which aims to encourage people to explore the city’s mix of watering holes, has been unveiled in the city.

County residents and visitors with a thirst for discovering great places to enjoy real ales and craft beers can now tap into the newly released city experience.

Lincoln Business Improvement Group (BIG) today unveiled the Lincoln Ale Trail, which will enable visitors to the city to enjoy live music, quiz nights and food.

The guide, created in partnership with Visit Lincoln, features 30 different venues, from historic inns to contemporary bars in an area stretching from Bailgate to the lower High Street.

All businesses included in the guide serve real ales or craft beers and are open from 2pm.

Venues listed include:

  • The Lion & Snake, Bailgate
  • Cask Restaurant & Brewhouse, Drury Lane
  • The Mailbox, Guildhall Street
  • The Ritz, High Street

Lincoln BIG Chief Executive Matt Corrigan said: “Lincoln has a diverse range of pubs, each with its own identity and unique ambience.

“Together they form an important part of the local economy, but not everyone realises just how much they offer by way of special brews, food and entertainment, from live music to pub quizzes.”

“We hope people will enjoy gradually discovering each of the hostelries, although obviously not all at once. Our handy guide also gives people the opportunity to rate each pub, out of ten.”

The Lincoln Ale Trail is available from the Lincoln Visitor Information Centre in Bailgate and the listed pubs are also on the Visit Lincoln website..
