The weather's great as it was on Sunday when 62 of us took a charabanc to Hawkshead Brewery/Staveley and Unsworth's Yard/Cartmel. A cracking time was had by all and our thanks go to all involved. Our next trip is pencilled in for 6 September and will be a return visit to the East Lancashire Railway. Watch this space.

We are also mulling over ideas for our third anniversary on August 1st. Yes, three years! Where does the time go?

We have some fine ales making their debuts soon from Highland Brewery, Orkney, Wild Beer Co, Somerset and Stewart Brewing, Edinburgh. But today we have:

Marble-Howgate and Kemp 6.4%
Cloudwater-Session IPA 4.8%
Bowland-Chipping Steamer 3.9%
Gloucester-Cascade 4.2%
Stringers-No 2 Stout 4%

Coming next Kirkby Lonsdale-Singletrack and Hawkshead ITI Pale Ale.

Westons-Old Rosie 7.3%
Lilleys-Bee Sting Perry 4.5%
Gwynt y Ddraig-Happy Daze Medium Cider 4.5%

But for now:

Sunday June 7th

Please note that we will be closed this Sunday June 7th. Open as usual today, Friday and Saturday.

This is because nearly 70 of us are off on one of our quarterly Snug outings this time to Staveley (Hawkshead Brewery) and then to Cartmel for a visit especially to Unsworth's Yard.

Thank you for your understanding. Now here's one for those who couldn't decide whether to join us on the trip or not:
