HomeEvents at the Wheel AlehouseWhat is Real AleWhat are micropubsAbout Us

Today, the Wheel Alehouse will open at noon and close at around 2pm, before opening again from 5pm until 9pm(ish).

The only micropub in Birchington

A larger than average micro-pub in Thanet, that meets the 'requirements' of selling Real Ale, Cider & Wine. Being somewhat different, The Wheel also offers a small selection of spirits (including Vodka, Dark Rum, Brandy, Port and Gin & Tonic).


Current Brews
Below are the 5 ales that are currently believed to be on offer at the Wheel Alehouse - but remember, some/all of these could have sold-out by the time you get there (so, phone the man at the wheel, Captain Alan, on 07826 130927 to find out exactly how many pints, if any, are left in each barrel!):-
Rudgate's Atlantic Crossing Best Bitter (5%)
Humour Dumpty Brewery 's Little Sharpie (3.8%)

Aptly for a business located in such a maritime area, the Wheel is a proud sponsor of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution

(Wendy Teale, George Washer, Bob Anstice and Robert Teale - we even have Carl, the Quiz Master, in some of these!).
The Wheel managed to raise the highest RNLI contribution in this area for a year - yet it had only been open for just over six months when it got this award.
The Wheel Alehouse is a proud sponsor of the RNLI - EVERY £2 quiz entry fee is given to the RNLI.
