Real Ale Society

Real Ale Society

We like to enjoy quality Ale and Cider, as well as a range of other traditional drinks like Mead and Fruit Wine. We are a very active society with a range of events held throughout the year; the society organises a number of nights out in and around Cardiff, Bristol, and also regularly organises brewery tours. We are also passionate about homebrewing, and we have often had “brewing nights”, where members help to make a beer or mead, and drink a previous homebrew beer or mead. Organising the festival is a big part of the societies’ activity, and it is completely student run, which means there are lots of opportunities to take part! If you’re enthusiastic about ale or cider or you’re just fed up of drinking the same thing, this society is for you!
