Brewing is something that is ingrained in local tradition, and the area boasts a huge number of award winning craft and micro breweries, ensuring the ales make the short distance to the pubs in tip top condition.
Of course, nowadays, the vast majority of pubs aren’t just there to slake walkers’ thirst, but to provide them with generous portions of piping hot locally sourced food. Venison, lamb, buffalo, organic vegetables, local cheese..you name it, the peak district produces it. Some of the best places to try local produce are the local pubs... think pies, game, roast dinners, hearty stews, suet pudding and tarts. All are waiting to be paired with a vast array of palette teasing ales.
So, you’ve sampled some of the finest food and drink the Peak District has to offer, how about somewhere to sleep? Many pubs in the Peak District are Inns or, in fact hotels, and offer rooms at very reasonable rates, so why not make a weekend of it. Stay up late with the locals in the bar, and when the night comes to a close you only have a stumble up the stairs to get some rest for the morning walk.
From the busy larger towns to the smallest villages, you will always find a decent pint of locally brewed Peak District ale ready to welcome you.
