Beer Today

Happy weekend playmates.

I would like to reassure you that The Snug is a St Patrick's Day free zone. If you want that nonsense maybe a fake Irish pub would be more your thing, but we prefer to visit an Irish pub when we go to Ireland.

Before we let you know what beers we will be offering this weekend a couple of reminders.

On Tuesday April 8th we have our first 'Meet the Brewer' evening. Kicking off at 7-00pm we will be showcasing the beers from the Fell Brewery and the brewers Tim and Andrew will be joining us.

On St George's Day we will be holding our annual fundraising quiz for Help for Heroes. Starting at 7-00pm all are welcome and entry is a mere £5 per team.

Today we are offering:

Titanic Stout 4.5%
Deeply Vale Citra Storm 4%
Worsthorne Old Trout 4.5%
Fell Brewery AAA 4.5%
Bowness Bay Waterbird Wheat 4.5%
Weston's Old Rosie 7.3%
Gwynt y Ddraig Two Trees Perry 4.5%

Coming soon Hardknott Katalyst, Hawkshead IPA and many more.

And now for something from the man who looks more like my Uncle Alf every day:
