A Shindig, Food and Trips

Hop fields at St Bernardus Brewery, Watou, Belgium
Well we've had a really good summer and we now have a busy autumn and winter to tell you about. We had a really good short break in Belgium in June and highly recommend the guest house at St Bernardus brewery in Belgium, delicious beer and a wonderful breakfast. But enough of that, what's happening at The Snug?

This Friday night (21st Sept 5 00pm until 9 00pm) we welcome back Yardies with their delicious Jamaican street food. If the weather is bad don't worry, there will be extra cover outside for when The Snug fills up.

On Sunday we launch our Snug Beer Club. From 12 00pm until 1 00pm on the third Sunday each month, entrance will be by extra  special can or bottle. The aim of the club is to sample the delights of beers that you cannot find in local shops, supermarkets or pubs so we don't want anybody turning up with a can of Boddies or Carlsberg! There is no charge but we will all be sampling the beers we bring along, so it's not a slug it back session it's more of a beer tasting hour. The Snug will then open as usual on a Sunday at 1 00pm. If you're wondering about where to find those special beers come along on Sunday and find out more.

On Saturday November 3rd we welcome back Thai Kitchen and will be hosting our first ever 'Gin and Rum Shindig'. We usually have around 12 gins and a couple of rums on offer but on November 3rd we will be adding 10 rums and 10 gins to the list, all drinks we have never had in before and hopefully ones that are new to you too. So there will be around 34 spirits to enjoy during the shindig and top notch Thai street food to complement them.

On Sunday 14 October we are planning an afternoon at our good friend Andrew's pub, the Barlick Tap in Barnoldswick. The Tap stocks a fantastic range of Belgian and other European beers as well as top quality cask and keg beers. The provisional details are departing The Snug at 11 00am, due in Barnoldswick around 12 15pm. We will leave Barnoldswick at 2 30pm due back at The Snug around 3 45pm for a last couple of drinks. We will need to finalise the coach by the beginning of October so need firm bookings and a £10 deposit by the 30th September. Cost will be between £15 and £20pp depending on figures. We don't make a profit on trips we only need to cover costs so the more that join us the cheaper it becomes.

Finally our ever popular Manchester Christmas trip is pencilled in for Sunday 9th December. This is just an early warning, it's far too early to be booking Christmas things yet.

Whether on a trip or just popping in for a drink we hope to see you all soon.
