Hark To Dandler Festival
The Hark to Dandler on Walmersley Old Road is holding a beer festival this weekend. Nothing unusual in that, you might think. Except it’s a J.W.Lees pub. And they normally would frown on buying outside of the tie. No less an expert than Tandleman himself conformed to me that this was highly unusual. 30 beers should be on over the weekend and could lead to serious problems. Once the regulars have tasted beer actually with hops in it, will they want to go back to Lees?
