    The 2019 Real Ale Festival will be being held from May 17th – 19th 2018 and promises to be as successful as the last 14.

    The festival will be being held at Dinas station, near Caernarfon.

    In addition to the wide range of new beers to choose from, there will, of course, be a fine selection from Porthmadog’s Purple Moose brewery.

    Updates will be posted on the dedicated site at www.rail-ale.com.
