To mark National Cask Ale Week in the first week of October (6–9th), The Whistle & Flute in Putney has joined forces with other pubs in the area to provide beer lovers in South West London with a unique chance to earn a special prize.

National Cask Ale Week takes place between October 1 – 9, and is a celebration of our national drink. Cask ale is undergoing a renaissance, with the number of new drinkers increasing, particularly within the 18-24 age range.

Between them, this collection of seven pubs aims to demonstrate to the good people of Putney what a diverse range of styles and flavours are available from the same four ingredients of water, barley, hops and yeast.

To participate, customers s imply pop in to any of the pubs listed below or on the Ale Trail posters displayed in the pubs to pick up a free Ale Trail collector’s card. When the customer orders a glass of cask ale the bar staff will stamp the card and direct them to the next pub in the trail.

Once the card contains stamps from all seven pubs (collected over the course of the four days), they return to The Whistle & Flute, hand over the card to receive a limited edition, souvenir Ale Trail pint glass.

Manager of The Whistle & Flute, John Pybus, said:
“Putney has long been a fantastic place to drink cask conditioned ale and is home to a brilliantly diverse range of pubs. Through this Ale Trail we’re hoping to show off to the residents of Putney, our locals and ale lovers from all over South West London what Putney has to offer. Each pub has a unique style and by combining the trail with Cask Ale Week, I’m sure we’ll add one or two more drinkers to the cask ale revolution.”
