Leicester CAMRA invites you to join us in supporting Mild in May

From 29th April to 4th June 2017, many pubs across Leicester & Leicestershire will be serving a range of Mild ales, a style of beer which is often overlooked. Our Mild Trail gives you the opportunity to enjoy Mild and at the same time discover pubs you may not usually venture to. 

The idea is simple and brings back childhood memories of collecting stickers, only this time for beer!. The April /May edition of the Leicester Drinker features a centrespread listing the particpating venues on a chart. Just obtain a copy from a local pub or you can download a copy below to print.  To take part in the Mild Trail, all you need to then do is visit as many of the listed pubs as you can and order a pint (or half) of cask mild, and then get a trail sticker for your chart.  The trail is open to all - you don't have to be a CAMRA member.  


Everyone who then collects 12 or more different pub stickers will have the chance to receive a unique limited edition "Sweet Mild of Mine" Leicester Mild Trail 2017 T-Shirt, which has kindly sponsored by some of the trail participating pubs & clubs. There will also be a selection of other prizes to be won. 

  You can of course take part in the Mild Trail on your own or with friends, but why not join us in a number of social events we have organised to enjoy the event with fellow mild fans:
