Just a reminder, guys and gals! The National Winter Ales Festival opens its doors in Manchester, on Wednesday this week, at four of the afternoon, with more beer than ever before. Usual venue, New Century Hall, near Victoria station. (That's Manchester Victoria, I hasten to add, in case anyone from Carshalton Beeches or Virginia Water thinks they can get the last train home.)
The Champion Winter Beer of Britain will be announced on Thursday. And
for some reason, Saturday is Fancy Dress Day (purely optional), and
the theme is pirates. Or is it parrots? Parrots seem to be very much
in the local news of late.
