For the thirsty traveling football supporter here is a guide to beer in and around some Unibond Premier League football grounds. I have included the beer in your friendly social club and for the more adventurous drinker, a nearby real ale house and the nearest pub to be featured in this years CAMRA Good Beer Guide. If you are visiting Colwyn Bay you may wish to check out the Abercolwyn Branch of CAMRA. Cheers!
