Tomorrow is the start of Lunesdale CAMRA's Dark and Winter Ales Festival. Pubs throughout the branch area will be having stouts, porters, milds and dark ales on. All the pubs involved, and the ales they will be showcasing, are on the Lunesdale CAMRA website .
There will be an official launch and meet the brewer event tomorrow at the White Cross with a 7-30pm kick off. All are welcome.
We will be fully participating. When we reopen on Tuesday we will be offering Marble Stouter Stout and Titanic Plum Porter. In the wings we have dark ales from Barngates, Ulverston and the Borough Brewery. Next weekend we will finish the week off with a mighty bang when we introduce Kirkby Lonsdale's Bantam '74, an Imperial Stout at 9%.
But if you are a light beer fan don't panic, you won't be neglected. We will also have Nine Standards Royal Standard (5%), Fell Tinderbox IPA (6.3%) and Dunscar Bridge Rialto 47 (3.9%). Other light beers will be joining us as the week progresses including our first from Cheshire's Blakemere Brewery.
Might see you at the White Cross tomorrow night, if not hopefully you will join us at The Snug for some wonderful dark ales during the week.
In the meantime:
