Live Pub Guide to Edinburgh: Plan of ATTK & Discounts

Now comes the time to reveal Ale to the King/CamRGB’s Plan of ATTK for tomorrow’s Live Pub Guide to Edinburgh!

As those of you coming along will already know we are meeting at the Teuchter’s Landing at 11 before continuing in the following order:

  • Teuchter’s Landing
  • Roseleaf Cafe Bar: 10% Discount on Drinks
  • Malt & Hops: Free mugs of chips

A wee bus ride to Stockbridge on the number 36

  • The Stockbridge Tap
  • Kay’s Bar
  • Dirty Dick’s Bar: 20% Discount on Drinks
  • Blue Blazer: 20% Discount on Drinks
  • The Brauhaus
  • Bow Bar
  • Brewdog Bar

In case anyone gets lost and for those joining us later into the tour you can locate our current whereabouts by phoning or texting me on:

07903914460.

The aim is to spend just over an hour in each pub; this is clearly going to run over, but that’s why we’ve decided upon such a conservative amount of time. This way no one feels like they should be sprinting a marathon and we should all get into all the pubs!

I, rather embarrassingly, will have a whistle with me. When we are approaching time to leave I will give a little blast on the whistle so people can sup up.

With that said, I’ll see you all at 11 AM tomorrow!

Join us for our first ever event in Edinburgh here.

Date: 04/06/12
Time: 11AM
Place: Teuchter’s Landing, 1C Dock Place, Leith, Edinburgh

Edinburgh Skyline

“Quaintest thoughts, queerest fancies come to life and fade away. What care I how time advances; I am drinking ale today.” – Edgar Allan Poe

Ale to the King in association with CamRGB are staging a royal coup.

This bank holiday may be in honour of one particular woman, but there’s a better reason to celebrate these extra free days. So ready yourselves ale lovers! Join Ale to the King on the 4th of June for a leisurely afternoon of quaffing only the finest real ale in Edinburgh’s most welcoming drinking establishments.

Join us for an afternoon (and, let’s face it, evening) voyaging to some of Ale to the King’s top ten best real ale pubs Edinburgh has to offer. Meet fellow ale lovers, talk ale and try something new – with discounts and special offers along the way.

Have a hearty breakfast then get yourself down to Teuchter’s Landing at the Shore for an 11am kick off. Wear comfy beer boots, because we’ll be taking in lots of the city and remember to bring a mere £1.40 for a bus ride we have planned.
Cider/whisky/gin/whateverthehellyouwanttodrink lovers also welcome, but we think you really should give ale a try – because it’s great.

Just sign-up at the official Facebook Event Pagee-mail us at robertjbayley@gmail.com or give us a Tweet or Direct Message!

While there are discounts on offer from pubs this is a totally free event which Ale to the King, CamRGB and the pubs  have arranged purely in the spirit of promoting great craft beer culture, no matter where its brewed or served.

One final note – remember to pace yourself, you don’t want to miss any of the fun now do you?

It might be Queenie’s big day, but on Monday 4th June we’ll be saying – Ale to the King!

Join us on the day by joining our Facebook Event Page, Tweeting us or e-mailing: robertjbayley@gmail.com

Alevengers Assemble

“There was an idea… to bring together a group of remarkable drinkers, so that when we needed them, they could sup the ales that others never could.” ~ Nick Früli.

Tonight details will be unveiled of the very first event brought to you by Ale to the King in association with CamRGB.

On June 4th, let’s celebrate the true royal sovereign of the state.

Ale to the King is now on Untappd!

You can now connect with Ale to the King on Untappd

This great social app, which looks to have been around for a year or so, has only just come to my attention, but I can already see myself becoming addicted.

The idea is that of a digital beer log and ranking system. You can connect with friends from all over the world to swap and compare notes on whatever ales you’re supping that very moment. Along the way you can unlock special badges depending on what you drink and special times of the year… at least those are ones I’ve discovered, I’m sure there are plenty more!

So fire up the Android (or Lumia or iphone or Blackberry or…) download the free app and join us for a session of e-drinking.
