Welcome to Valleys Ale Trails
Valleys Ale Trails is a brand new venture promoting the Valleys’ rich pub and brewing culture.
Annually we compile a series of fascinating and historic trails and provide the transport for navigating them. Each trail is complemented by professional interpretation that reveals the Valleys’ heritage, industrial, physical and cultural wealth.
As well as the pubs, enthusiasts will discover new ales and hidden landscapes.
We aim for our trails to become one of the principal elements of food and drink tourism in south Wales.
