Pub crawl of Chorlton-cum-Hardy on Sat 12th Nov and other news

We will be having a pub crawl of Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Manchester on Saturday 12th November 2011. It has 6 Good Beer Guide listed pubs, including one which is the home of the Bootleg Brewery.

We will catch the 11:30 Northern Train from Huddersfield Train Station to Manchester Victoria. We will then catch the tram on to Chorlton-Cum-Hardy.

 

I am also pleased to announce that Udders Orchard have won the Yorkshire Cider of the Year 2011 for their “Whisky Cask Cider”. The presentation will take place on Sunday 20th Nov at 3:30pm in the Rat & Ratchet. The same cider also won the Cider of the Festival award at Huddersfield Oktoberfest – the presentation for that will be at the Branch AGM on Monday 21st Nov which starts at 8pm, also at the Rat & Ratchet.

 

Finally, Brambles Cafe & Bar has opened in Holmfirth. Formerly the White Hart, it has been extensively refurbished and now offers 7 real ales & a real cider. The pub is managed by Jonny Holmes, formerly of the Commercial and Swan in Slaithwaite.
