Anyone visiting York's annual Food & Drink Festival this weekend will have the opportunity to join a Real Ale Trail that takes in twelve of the city's finest hostelries. It's the usual drill - pick up a card, collect your stamps and claim the t-shirt. For a list of the participating pubs, visit the festival website.
And if twelve is not enough then seek out the Rook & Gaskill, just outside the walls, where an Indian Summer Beer Festival is taking place. A fair few Indian Pale Ales are promised amongst the 18 or so beers available. (map)
