About Real Ale Society
We are a society who promotes the enjoyment and appreciation of real ale and craft beer (we also don't mind a cider or whisky) in a relaxed and sociable atmosphere. We meet regularly across York's many pubs, holding themed pub crawls, pub quizzes, and the occasional trips to beer festivals and breweries. Whether you've already got a taste for beer, would like to know more about this wonderful drink, or simply aren't a fan of clubbing and just want to go down the pub, we'd love to meet you!
We meet every week, usually on Tuesday evenings from 7pm onwards, but occasionally on Wednesday or Thursday evenings. Brewery tours or trips to beer festivals are more likely to happen on Saturdays. Make sure to regularly check our social media for updates on events.
Suited to anyone who likes beer (or would like to try something different) and is looking for a group of like-minded people to have some drinks with. You can get involved easily by joining us online and coming along to one of our weekly activities. You can email us at: [email protected], follow us on Facebook, which is our main social media platform, just search for the group 'York University Real Ale Society' and look for our logo, follow us on Twitter at @yorkunirealale, or on Instagram at @realaleuoy.
