Cumbrian Capers


I'm off on my annual trip with the boys (well old men actually) tomorrow. Ulverston and Broughton are the destinations. We are expecting some very poor weather and some very good beer.

Tomorrow sees us, among other places, in both the Watermill at Ings and the Hawkshead Brewery Beer Hall for lunch and if it works out, a chat with Alex Brodie, the owner. We have a designated driver, so no good or classic pub on the way need be missed. Should be an excellent couple of days. Wednesday night sees us in Broughton where we also expect good beer and possibly, a meet with the leg-end that is Dave Bailey.

I'll send the odd tweet, but signals are dodgy in the sticks.

Dave - I'll tweet you directly in advance

The Watermill is a cracker, we're off to Wasdale on Saturday and may well stop for a pint as we pass.

Ooh, you'll be going back just before the Broughton Fest-O-Beer kicks off, won't you?

Enjoy!!!

Keswick is worth a visit too if you get chance - plenty of pubs plus it has booth's and open all hours which sell some great bottles

Leg-end? I think you mean legend?

Professor Pie-Tin said...

No, I think he really meant leg-end.

Of he's a legend and a leg-end. Had some pints with him the other night. Great!

Tandleman said...

or of course!

So are the Hardknott beers from the (former!?!) brewpub up in the hills that I wish I managed to get to a year ago, from the new brewery, or...?
