National Winter Ales Festival


Did I mention here that I am Deputy Organiser for this splendid event? No? Well I am. It takes place next week from Wednesday 21st to Saturday 24th at the Co-op's New Century Hall, right opposite Victoria Station in Manchester. It promises to be good. There will be lots of excellent beer, both British and Foreign, cider and lots of other interesting things including the Champion Winter Beer of Britain. I'll be judging in the Stouts and Porters section, as well as doing a million other things. My head is swimming with it already and we haven't got going yet.

I know it is in the North, but do try and come along, drink some beer and say hello.Full details are on this link

See you there, probably on the Saturday. Bent & Bongs in Atherton the following weekend is also worth a visit.

I don't see any mention of a trade session. Is there one?

Tandleman said...

Jeff. Yes. Half past one until four. I've asked for the site to be corrected. If you want a ticket, let me know. I have a couple left.

Zak said...

Tandleman, can you contact me re: the trade session please, cheers.

Jeff Pickthall said...

If you could save me a trade session I'd be grateful. I presume it's the first day, as is customary.

Tandleman said...

Jeff. Yes it is the Wed. I will put a ticket aside for you. Just ask for me by my real name when you get there.

Jeff Pickthall said...

Shocking! Some of us have to spend a whole twenty minutes on the train and cross a road to get there.

Tandleman said...

Jeff - You are welcome.

Rednev said...

Any chance of a trade ticket for me?

Are you sure the Trade Session is Wednesday - I thought it was on Thursday in the run-up to the Champion Winter Beer of Britain announcement.

John

The trade session is on Thursday-well it better be, because I've planned my afternoon round it!

Tandleman said...

Sorry all, particularly Jeff. It is Thursday. I am talking shite!

Jeff Pickhall. Ticket still available for you. Please confirm you have seen this.

Jeff Pickthall said...

Message received and understood, thankyou.

Tandleman said...

Great Jeff, Your ticket awaits you.
