Back Home

We're back after a good few days of excess in London. Redemption is one of the top beers we tried, especially their Hopspur which is sold in north London, especially in the Tottenham area where we were. It's good to be back though.

We have very limited places left for our New Year's Eve ticket only bash. There is a £5 charge to cover the cost of nibbly things, cheese and pate. Please get in touch asap if you would like to join us.

Our next Snug outing will be on Sunday 1st March 2015. By popular demand we will be returning to Liverpool. There are so many good pubs that a return visit was inevitable.

The work to refurbish the toilets has now begun. The gents is being done now so there is one unisex toilet until that work is complete. Then work will start on the ladies. It will be a great improvement and we are grateful for your understanding and patience while the work is in progress.

So what's on the bar today? Here it is:

Kirkby Lonsdale-Jingling Lane 3.7%
Dark Star-Partridge 4%
Milestone-Rich Ruby 4.4%
Kirkby Lonsdale-Singletrack Black IPA 4%
Clark's-Victorious 4.4%

Next up will be Marble Lagonda IPA and then Bowland India Pale Ale.

If you're wondering about Christmas presents remember we have Snug gift vouchers in various denominations from £5 to £20.

Have a great weekend.

Oh Manchester, so much to answer for!

It's hard to believe that the third Snug outing to the Manchester Christmas Markets has been and gone, and what a great day. In addition to the 55 or so on the coach from The Snug we met another dozen or so regulars who made their own way to the Marble Arch and Marble Brewery.

Yet again most of us didn't actually get to the markets, sampling the wares in the ever increasing decent ale pubs and bars in Town, mainly the 'Northern Quarter' or Ancoats if you're a traditionalist. A group did shop 'til they dropped and another group hit the champagne bar at Selfridges. Each to his own I say.

Monday was spent recovering. Thank you to all for a great day.

The Christmas lights are switched on  in Carnforth tonight and today's beer selection reflects that. We have:

Mordue-Oatmeal Stout 4.5%
Lymm-Lymm Dam Strong Ale 7.2%
Walls-Northallerton Best 4.4%
Hawkshead-Jingle Fells 4.5%

Original Cider Co-Moonshine 7.5%
Weston's-Old Rosie Scrumpy 7.3%

Due to ongoing tehnology problems I am unable to upload a video, which some may regret some may be relieved about.

Have a good week.
