Plans are now almost finalised for our beer festival on Nov 21 and 22. We will have 30 beers and ciders in the Station Heritage Centre and start the weekend with 5 Marble beers in The Snug. This week has been great fun working through lists of breweries and tasting notes to make our selection. Kids in a sweet shop springs to mind.
On the Saturday we will be having a Meet the Brewer session in The Snug at 1-00pm with Stuart from Marble Brewery. The bad news is that The Snug Ukulele Group will be making their first public appearance on the Saturday night, around 7-30 if we are all compos mentis!
Mike Dillon, the local CAMRA branch chairman is kindly organising volunteer pint pullers again but we are looking for volunteers to help in other ways. If you would like to help for an hour or two please get in touch.
Now here are the beers and ciders we are offering this weekend:
Marble-Lagonda IPA 5%
Tom Wood's-Bomber County 4.8%
Banks & Taylors-Extra Dry Stout 4.5%
Merrie City-Czechmate 4.1%
Pure North-Valley Gold Cider 6%
Weston's-Old Rosie 7.3%
Now then, on the festival theme the Move Festival at Old Trafford cricket ground was always one of my favourites having seen there, over the years Bowie, Suede, Divine Comedy and countless others. One 0f the best nights was Morrissey and here he is. A free pint tonight for the first person who spots Mrs B and I in the crowd and can describe where we were:
