Come along and join us for a few bevvies in Leicester!  

Catch up with lads you've met on other events or, if you're new to ODL, come along for a chat and find out what a friendly and welcoming bunch we are!

Leicester is a pub-lover’s paradise, with a great selection of traditional pubs serving up real ale alongside friendly charm and a relaxed atmosphere. From vintage taverns to specialist ale houses and contemporary gastro-pubs, the city is a must-visit for any beer enthusiast. The city's great selection of traditional pubs includes more than 30 Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) pubs.

Leicester is the home of award-winning breweries such as Everards, established in Leicester in 1849, as well as a range of newer local micro-breweries.  What better place to have a beer.  

Leicester is also the home of Burleigh's Gin, which runs a dedicated gin bar in the city.

The evening will follow a formula that has proven popular at other similar events in Nottingham and Derby: we'll meet at the Knight + Garter from 7.00pm, then from 8.00-8.30pm we will make our way to 2-3 more great CAMRA pubs, sampling the ales (and other beverages, for non-beer-drinkers) along the way.  Once the main social ends, some or all of us may well decide to head on to the Dover Castle, Leicester’s oldest and busiest gay pub.

Look out for the leader in his ODL t-shirt when you arrive.

The Knight + Garter has great pub grub if you want to grab a bite to eat ahead of the lads arriving at 7.00pm.  It also has a great terrace if the weather is fine.

A separate event, The King and the Carpark - Leicester Historic Day Walk, is scheduled for earlier the same day, so why not make big day of it, discovering lovely Les-tah!

Leicester has plenty of good value accommodation for anyone thinking of staying over to attend the Leicester Ale Trail.  Message the event the leader for guidance on where to stay or if you have any other questions before the event.
