The Ales Way - Wharfedale's Ale Trail, a collection of some of the true greats in Yorkshire Dales pubs, is promoted by the Upper Wharfedale Community Interest Company (UWCIC) in partnership with Wharfedale Brewery and the pubs it supplies, with support from the Yorkshire Dales National Park Sustainable Development Fund.  Wharfedale Brewery makes a donation to the UWCIC, a not for profit organisation which rasises money for good causes in Wharfedale, whenever a pint of their beer is bought from participating pubs.


To enhance your enjoyment of the ale trail we have produced a souvenir Ales Way t-shirt. Pick up your souvenir card when you visit any of the pubs and you will receive a uniquely coloured pint stamp when you order a pint of Wharfedale Brewery beer. Minibus hire
