We now also have Marble Ginger 5.1 in bottles, a few bottles of Earl Grey IPA and a few of Bennett's Progress.

The Snug Beer Festival-22 & 23 November 12-00 til 9-00pm

Plans for our first beer festival are advancing nicely. It will take place in The Snug and the Furness and Midland Hall at the station on Friday and Saturday from 12-00 until 9-00pm.

There will be 20 beers available in the hall and up to 10 in The Snug. In addition there will be 5 ciders, wine and soft drinks available. We are planning to have the full range of Marble beers in The Snug and are discussing with the brewery the possibility of a meet the brewer session some time on the Saturday.

Food will be available (9-00 til 5-00pm) in the Refreshment Rooms, with The Snug offering our usual range of beer soakers such as pork pie and cheese and crackers. After 5-00pm there will be a barbecue until 9-00pm.

Admission will be £4 which includes glass and programme. £2 will go to the Heritage Trust, a very worthy cause, and the other £2 will be refundable if you return your festival glass rather than keeping it. All beers will be £3 a pint, £1.50 a half and £1 a third. The festival glasses will be lined half pints with a third marked on them too. Pint glasses will also be available.

Posters and flyers should be ready this week. Please let us know if you could put a poster or two up and/or leave some flyers where people can take them.
