New Beer Walking Tours on Sundays in Shrewsbury
27 Mar 2023

Shrewsbury Sunday beer tours with expert beer writer Laura Hadland will get underway on the last Sunday of the month - beginning Sunday, April 30th - thanks to support from Shrewsbury BID.

Sunday beer tours will kick off in Shrewsbury at the end of the month - developed by award-winning beer writer Laura Hadland. 

'Shrewsbeer' walking tours will see guests sample four different cask ales in four different venues across town, held on the last Sunday of the month. Supported by Shrewsbury BID, they aim to showcase our great Shropshire ales and help bring them to new audiences. 

Laura Hadland, author of Best Beer Book in the World, and an acclaimed food and drink writer, writing regularly for national newspapers and magazines, said: "I can't wait to help people explore new pubs and new styles of beer," said Laura. "Shropshire is blessed with some genuinely fantastic breweries, making internationally-acclaimed beers in a range of styles. We'll be discovering them together, as well as taking in some of the heritage of the beautiful town of Shrewsbury."

The relaxed, inclusive event is intended to appeal to people who are just dipping their toes into the world of beer for the first time as well as established beer lovers. Brewers from the region are being invited to join the fun as well, so there will be bags of expert guidance on hand.

Laura, who is also an expert on low and no alcohol beers, runs popular tasting 'pop-ups' in pubs across Shropshire. She also writes for The Good Beer Guide and is the author of 50 Years of CAMRA

"Cask ale is a fantastic product, something uniquely British that we do better than anyone else in the world," Laura said. "I hope that Shrewsbeer guests will be amazed by the variety and quality of the beers that we try, and that everyone enjoys the opportunity to discover a little-known side of one of Britain's most beautiful little towns."

Tickets for the tour are £30 including the beer and non-alcoholic alternatives will be available. The tour is strictly for over 18s only and is dog-friendly.

Tickets can be booked for the first three tours, beginning on Sunday 30th April at 2pm via ShropshireGOAT.com/Shrewsbeer
