Many thanks to Tim at the White Cross in Lancaster for hosting the launch of Lunesdale CAMRA's Dark and Winter Ales Festival on Monday night. It was great to catch up with pals from Old School, Kirkby Lonsdale, Hardknott and Hawkshead breweries as well as the local CAMRA members. A fine night was had by all.
So what do we have to offer the discerning drinker this weekend? We still have a little Titanic Plum Porter (4.9%) and Marble Stouter Stout (4.7%). On the lighter side we have Bowness Bay Swan Blonde (4%) and Liverpool Craft Brew Co's IPA (5%). And, as part of their commemoration of the First World War, we have Clark's Trench (3.6%), a chestnut mild.
Next up will be Marble Pint (3.9%) and the wonderful Kirkby Lonsdale Bantam '74 (9%).
Ukelele players please remember 6-30pm on Monday.
And finally. A free pint for the first person to come into The Snug and tell me the link(s) to the following hit from the 1970s:
