Mad panic.. means new draughts

Just had a mad afternoon which has meant that we have had to put on more beer due to running out of draught ales. So now on draught are:
Lymestone Brewery “Stonewall Penalty”  4.6% Hoppy Pale Ale and Sandstone Brewery “Lazy Dragon” 3.5% Amber Bitter

Haven’t tried Lazy Dragon yet but can say that the Stonewall Penalty is very very nice. Perfect for the world cup.
Enjoy!!

Not just for balance…

We have a restock from the Red Rose county now….the magician’s from Marble have now delivered these rather nice examples. …

And they are so right……a Dobber is for life 😀

We are nearly ready for the Congleton Food Festival

It’s tomorrow, can’t believe how quickly the day has come around. Looking forward to seeing Congleton town spring into life, with 1000s of people attending the ever-expanding event. Jo Money and her team of volunteers have done a superb job in the Organisation and keeping everyone informed.
So have a look at the Website for all the stalls, demonstration times and entertainment available. The weather is looking OK too.
Don’t forget we will be having tasters on the stall throughout the day. 
See you there 🙂
