Turkey Trot to Chorley
A great turnout for the Christmas social which took in various pubs, micropubs and even a bottle shop in Chorley. Cheers to all who made it.
Pendle area of East Lancs CAMRA were pleased to present Barnoldswick Working Men’s Club (aka Green Street Club) with their 2019 Club of the year award.
Three members of the Pendle branch presented the award to Debbie Brooksbank on behalf of the club committee. Debbie was overjoyed with the award and rightly so as the beer quality is superb, usually offering two Bowland beers on cask. Debbie is their bar manager and has spent many months building up the real ale offering as well as improving overall beer quality. Green Street is a friendly refurbished club in the centre of Barlick and well worth a visit.

A warm congratulations to Steve and Christine Dilworth from The Swan With Two Necks in Pendleton, receiving the certificate for being one of the final four pubs competing for CAMRA’s prestigious Pub of the Year award, with the winner announced in February 2020. Can they follow up on their 2014 success? Also, what do you think about the volunteer’s t-shirts for the Pendle Beer Festival 2020 modelled by Steve, Tom Fishwick, Karen and Martyn Pashley?
A nice write up about the Lunesdale CAMRA Branch trip to Colne on Friday 29th November by Lawrence Bland.
Four members caught several trains from Lancaster to Colne on a lovely sunny but very cold day. We joined up with two members of the East Lancashire CAMRA Branch. We walked up hill to the Hartley Wallace, the Wetherspoon’s pub named after the Titanic bandsman, sampling a Blond Violin from Worsthorne Brewery, from Briercliffe and a Peerless Triple Blond from Birkenhead. We moved further along Church Street to the new Northern Whisper Tap Room, from the brewery in Cloughfold, I sampled three thirds of their Beltic, Fine Fetler and Rum Bugger. We moved on to the Red Lion, the oldest pub in town and a Samuel Smith house and a half of their Best Bitter. A short walk back to New Market Street and the three micros, starting in Boyce’s Barrel and a Great Newsome Jem’s Stout from South Frodingham. Next door at the Cask ‘n’ Keg and a Reedley Hallows Monkholme Premium from nearby Burnley. Two doors down was the Tapster’s Promise and a Hophurst Milkshake IPA from Wigan, better than it sounds. We walked down to the station, and finished our drinking at the Crown and a Moorhouse’s Pride of Pendle.
Glad you enjoyed you day out. Cheers
