The 17th Ayrshire Real Ale Festival will be held from Thursday 6th - Saturday 8th October 2016,
as usual in Troon Concert Hall.

The festival, organised by the Ayrshire & Wigtownshire branch of CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale),
will once again feature over 150 ales from around the UK, and we'll have our themed second bar in the Walker Hall.
