Unless stated, our meetings are open to all-comers - and new members are particularly welcome!

We will keep these details as accurate as we can, but please confirm details with the event organiser before attending in case of changes or cancellations.
Date 2017 Event Location/Address Info
Sat 3 Mar 2018 East London Ale Trail A 5 mile crawl of East London pubs and taprooms starting at Whitechapel Station and ending at Hackney Wick. All distances between stops are 0.6 miles or less except for the final segment between Victoria Park and Hackney Wick which is 0.9 miles. For those who prefer a shorter walk, the trail may be cut short at Hackney Central (2.7 miles). Either way, there are few viable bus and train options along the route therefore attendees should be prepared to walk the whole way. Register (FREE)
