Help for Heroes Euro 2016 Sweepstake

Two weeks today and Euro 2016 kicks off with France playing Romania. You can get the full excitement of the competition by entering The Snug sweepstake which opens at 5 00pm tonight. For a mere fiver can draw one of the 24 countries in the competition. £60 of the entry fees will go to Help for Heroes, £40 will go to the holder of the winning country and £20 the runners up. A list of who has each country will be on the wall in The Snug so you can keep up to date with who is doing what as the tournament progresses. Good luck, especially whoever gets England.

Thank you all for another great Snug outing on Sunday. Yet again the sun shone on us as  we relaxed and enjoyed beer, wine, cheese and Sunday dinners in Staveley and Cartmel, ending with an hour at The Factory Tap in Kendal, the pub which we were recently twinned with. Next trip will be to the East Lancashire Railway, details to be confirmed but will be early in September.

On the bar today we have:

Goddard's-Fuggle Dee Dum 4.8%
Kirkby Lonsdale-Jubilee Stout 5.5%
Hardknott-Nuclear Sunset 4.7%
Bowness Bay-Amazon Amber 3.8%
Marble-Earl Grey 6.8%

Next up Marble Ginger 5.1, Eden Blonde Knight and Hawkshead Windermere Pale.

Lancashire Dry Cider 7%
Weston's-Old Rosie 7.3%

In addition we have 7 bottled ciders from Aspall's, Thistly Cross, Thatcher's and Orchard Pig and up to 27 bottled and canned beers.

Hope to see you over the weekend. In the meantime here's one of my favourite football anthems:

Snug News

There's lots going on at The Snug starting today (Sunday) with one of our now famous Jacob's Joins. From around 1 00pm regulars will be bringing in their delicacies for us all to enjoy. Why not join us for some decent drinks and a free nibble?

Our trip to Staveley and Cartmel on 22 May is filling up very quickly. We have booked a 57 seater coach but there are only 6 places left. We will be leaving The Snug at 11 15am due back around 8 00pm, cost is £12pp. Get in touch asap if you would like to join us.

As we hurtle towards St George's Day we are dusting off the bunting and flags  ready for a day of fun and fundraising for Help for Heroes. Throughout the day we will be having quick quizzes and mini raffles with some fantastic prizes. There will be also be themed beers on the pumps including a tribute to William Shakespeare on his 400th birthday.

We should soon have some great news about The Snug and our friends at the Factory Tap, Bowness Bay Brewing Companies' excellent bar in Kendal. Can't say more at this stage but watch this space.

So with 5 beers, a selection of ciders and wines why not join us this afternoon and make the most of the sunshine.
