It's all go at the moment but first, what are we offering the discerning drinker this weekend?
We have a little Barlow Heath Robinson left at 3.8%, a wonderful traditional red bitter from Nottingham. The Foxfield Princely Piper, a lovely golden coloured 5.1% is still on and there is more about the Prince of Wales at Foxfield a little later. From Wiltshire we have the Funnel Blower (stop tittering at the back) from Box Steam Brewery, a 4.5% vanilla porter. From Ulverston (more about Ulverston a little later too) we have Another Fine Mess at 4%.
Joining us today on the fifth pump will be the Marble Manchester Bitter at 4.2%.
Also on the stillage we have the Cumberland Corby Blonde, Magpie Best and the Robust Porter from the new Fell Brewery at Flookburgh.
A date for your diaries now. We are planning our first beer festival in conjunction with the wonderful Brief Encounter Refreshment Rooms and the Station Heritage Centre. The date to pencil in is Friday 22 and Saturday 23 November. More details as plans are finalised.
We still have places left on our Snug Outing on Sunday June 2nd. We will be leaving by coach at 11-00am on Sunday June 2nd heading to the Prince of Wales at Foxfield then on to Broughton for an hour. Then we will be heading to the Ulverston Brewery Visitor Centre for a couple of hours aiming to be back in Carnforth around 7-00pm. The cost is £10 per person.
And finally, Wigan Bob will be in tomorrow lunchtime (Saturday) with his wonderful curry pies. Bob makes his own pies and offers them as a little blotter on a Saturday lunchtime. He doesn't charge, being a very generous chap, but he does ask for a donation to our bar top charity collecting tin, currently Help for Heroes.
