With around 4 pubs closing across the UK each day, one part of Essex is doing it's best to help rural pubs.
CAMRA (Campaign For Real Ale) have set up a bus service that will carry beer lovers to rural pubs around Colchester.
The 16 seater minibus will leave the town centre and then go to surrounding villages to help rural pubs survive.
It's hoped the Real Ale Runabouts will give 26 watering holes, that are not well served by public transport, a much-needed boost.
Details of all the tours, which start on Thurs May 12th, are below.
