Long Live The Weekend, The Weekend Is Here

Here's what will be on the bar this weekend:

Old School Brewery-Detention. (4.1%ABV)

Bowness Bay-Swan Blonde. (4.0%ABV)

Irwell Works-Grumpy Grandad (4.1%ABV)

Box Steam-Chuffin' Ale. (4.0%ABV)

I was down there at 8-30am to put the heating on so it should be nice and cosy.

Sadly Bob and Julie are still away so there won't be any black pudding at lunchtime today. But I have managed to get some Fentiman's Rose Lemonade in!

Beer We Go-It's Weekend!

Joining us this weekend in The Snug will be, all the way from the Wilson Potter Brewery in Manchester, In the Light which is a pale golden beer with a citrus aroma and a full balanced bitterness with a clean tangy finish (ABV 4%).

From Morecambe we will be joined by a Cross Bay Hurricane. A well hopped bitter boasting a complex hop and fruity body with a crisp and memorable finish (ABV 4%).

From Kirkby Lonsdale we have the Tiffin Gold, a pale gold bitter with a fruity hop character giving a fairly sweetish flavour (ABV 3.6%).

And from Bolton's Dunscar Bridge Brewery Rialto 47 with  a golden, fruity, all American full bodied hoppy taste (ABV 3.9%).
