Party time

We’re proud to announce that we hold an annual Ale Trail party, exclusive to those who complete the Trail.

Fill in your details on your map once you've completed the trail and hand it in at the Three Horseshoes or Saracen’s Head, and we'll send you an invite to the party that takes place in January.

This money can't buy invite includes (at no extra cost) a couple of free pints in it for you, a tasty bite to eat on offer, and a goody bag, as well as the chance to meet other Ale Trailers.

So if you want to be there you have to do the Ale Trail, it's as simple as that.

Collect your FREE pint of Brakspear Bitter, and FREE T-shirt or Gift Set

The 2016 t-shirt is now available!

We challenge you to visit our 10 pubs in Henley on Thames, enjoy a pint of Brakspear Bitter or Oxford Gold and get your map stamped.

Visit the Three Horseshoes or the Saracen’s Head as your final destination to claim your FREE pint of Brakspear Bitter and a rather fetching T-shirt.

Don't feel under pressure to visit all the pubs in the same day, as there is no end date for the Trail and if you fancy doing it more than once, or just fancy a change from the t-shirt, you can choose our new gift set instead that includes 2 x 500ml of Brakspear ale and 1 x Brakspear tankard pint glass along with a FREE pint of Brakspear Bitter.

Oxford Gold by Brakspear

Oxford Gold (4.0%)

English Target hops give this beer a remarkable aroma. Late hopping with Goldings and fermentation by the Brakspear yeast creates a remarkable zesty aroma, a full fruity flavour and a golden colour. Available all year.

Double Dropped Bitter by Brakspear

Brakspear Bitter (3.4%)

A superb session beer. Amber in colour with a good fruit, hop and malt nose. The initial taste of malt and the well hopped bitterness quickly dissolves into a predominantly bittersweet and fruity finish.
