Day out in Stockport.
I went on a trip yesterday. I took the camera for you guys but forgot the memory card!
I live an hour away from a national park.
It just so happens that half way on route is the only good HBS around.
When SWMBO wants a trip out you can imagine where we head for.
Another reason it seemed like a good idea is there is a Camra Pub of the year near by and some other very good Ale pubs.
The Nursery Inn at Heaton Norris sells Jekyll's beer
Half of a Jekyll's gold
Hydes Jekyll's Gold
An outstanding refreshing premium ale.
Its pale blonde colour and citrus character being its hallmark.
The next pub wasn't a picturesque place a "Locals pub" but on recommendations and quotes like these:
This is a real example of a UK local pub selling real ale. :rockin:
I waned to visit this one just 2 minutes away but I was driving and it was pointless is I couldn't sample.
Yes I did get to the hills and I did get to the HBS.
From the HBS I got a couple of packs of yeast, some chocolate malt and some fuggles. We had a chat about oven mashing and roasting my own speciality malts.
Not a bad day out.
Wow, I really need to get my arse to England. SWMBO and I went to an "English Pub" in downtown Richmond the other day, I've been wanting to go for a while now. The Owner is from England so I wonder how authentic it actually is.
Cannot remember what I ate, but it was basically ground beef and gravy covered with mashed potatos and peas--very good.
EDIT: It's called Penny Lanes'.
Check out The Brew Shop, Trading in homebrew since 1968
The Brew Shop UK 48 Buxton Rd. Stockport SK2-6NB
It's a really nice drive from Sheffield.
Porters Railway is worth the trip.
Wow, I see what you mean - that drive would be worth doing even without the beer shop at the end.
Thanks for the tip :mug:
Man, oh man, oh man! That pic of the tap selection had me wanting to belly up to the bar! Great pics, thanks for sharing. Makes me want to go over there badly!
Here's some others I need to visit.
