Power Cuts

There is a rumour that we could be losing power again at 4 00pm. If the rumour proves to be accurate I'm afraid we will be closed this evening. If it is unfounded and we don't lose power it's business as usual.

I am letting you all know now as when we lose power we lose mobile signals and internet connections.

Hope to be open at 5 00, fingers crossed.

Beer Festival, Trips and Fringe Theatre

Apologies for the lack of updates recently, this has been due to technical problems and a long holday in Rome and Vienna. By the way, we found a bar in Vienna offering Thornbridge and Tiny Rebel, as well as wonderful local craft beers. If you are planning to visit the bar is called The Brickmakers Cider and Ale House.

Anyway, plans are now advancing for the beer festival on November 20 and 21. Some fine beers have been selected and Paul has designed our wonderful poster. On the Sunday (22nd Nov) Haste Theatre will be performing two of their wonderful fringe shows that have been performed at the Edinburgh Fringe, San Diego, Miami and Rome fringe festivals while winning numerous awards and top notch reviews. They will be performing in the afternoon in the Furness Hall where any remaining beers from the festival will be on sale. Details will be posted on here in the next few days.

Places are still available on our trip to Manchester on December 6. The charabanc leaves The Snug at 10 30am leaving Manchester at 7 00pm. The itinerary is being finalised but we will be dropping off at Chorlton Street, then the Marble Arch.

On New Year's Eve we are going to Hawkshead Beer Hall. Places filled up very quickly but we do have a reserve list in case of cancellations. Please get in touch asap if you would like to put your name(s) down.

Beer list for tomorrow will be going on in the morning but if you follow us on Twitter and Facebook we update on those as and when beers change.

Cracking holiday we had, but it's nice to be back and we promise to update the blog regularly now we are back in the saddle.
