Real Ale, Steam Trains, Live Music, Stunning Scenery… The fifteenth annual Rail Ale festival promises to be the best yet.

Past events have delivered over one hundred real ales on tap in the historic goods shed venue at Dinas with live music, displays from other local groups and even a beer specially brewed for the event by our local microbreweries.

This year there will be the usual wide selection of real ales from Wales, including Welsh cider and perry.

The greatest selection of ales will be in the Goods Shed at the railway’s station at Dinas, which will be transformed into a bar and music venue. Also taking part in the festival are The Black Boy and Bar Bach in Caearnarfon, and the Snowdonia Parc in Waunfawr, all easily accessible by train!

Regular steam-hauled trains will also be running throughout the weekend to take you into Snowdonia’s spectacular countryside. Why not take a trip through the Aberglaslyn Pass to Porthmadog?
