Coach trip to Epping/Ongar Beer Festival Friday 28th July 2017

Written by Ian Boyd

Following on from the very successful Tring Brewery trip, we have hired the same luxury 49-seater coach for our outing to Epping Ongar Beer festival. Check their official website for full details http://eorailway.co.uk/events/real-ale.

This year around 70 ales and 20 ciders are expected. There is a large marquee beer, old carriages to sit and drink in, a tea-room, hot food and snack stalls, a railway gift and second-hand book shop, and optional short trips on the steam and diesel trains (with bars!) as well as the old Routemaster buses to go on.

Coach schedule and pick-up times:

The cost will be £15 for the return journey. Steam/Diesel train and bus journeys at the location are an optional additional cost. Tutored beer tastings on board the trains may also be available.
