Travel gurus at the Lonely Planet describe Derby as the "best place to drink real ale in the World", so you won’t be disappointed as you sample the very best real ale from Derby’s micro-breweries and a selection from around the UK.

What will your tipple be; the dangerously drinkable Abduction, the deliciously malty Dark Drake or the more generously hopped pale ale Ay Up, all courtesy of Rachel, the fabulous female brewer from Dancing Duck Brewery.

Once you’ve found your favourite brew, dance the night away to a selection of fantastic live bands in the stunning surrounding of the magnificent Derby Roundhouse.

While you’re here, learn the art of brewing on one of Derby’s Micro-brewery Tours, roll your sleeves up as you become an apprentice brewer on A Day with the Brewer experience or follow Derby’s Perfect Pub Crawl to discover some of the city’s best pubs.
