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.
