Ramsbottom Beer Festival

Today sees the start of Ramsbottom Beer Festival. Hosted by Irwell Works Brewery, it takes place in the rather grand Ramsbottom Civic Hall. We’re promised 50 real ales mainly from Lancashire breweries with a few foreigners from Yorkshire thrown in. 
 
Opening hours are 12-midnight on both days and there will be food and bottled beers available also. Entry is £2.50 or £2 with the magic CAMRA card and that allows you entry to all the sessions. Music is promised for Saturday and proceeds are going towards the very worthy cause of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

See's? Shame on you!

Oops duly corrected. Blogging on the go on an iphone is not ideal for proof reading, I must say.

A worthy cause indeed, but it would be worrying if you needed a lifeboat in Rammy.

True, Ramsbottom isn't known for its nautical connections, but there have been flood warnings in recent years as the River Irwell does sometimes burst its banks.
