Roll Up Roll Up

Beer festivals tend to be like buses-no, not full of bearded, smelly drunks, although they can be...but they do tend to come in batches. September is a busy month locally and with a shortage later in the year, you have to grab the action while you can.

First up is one organised by our very own Eddie, the eager, legal beagle. Yes, it’s the legendary Septemburyfest. It’s at a great venue and all proceeds go to local charities, so why not pop along and enjoy some very good beers. You may even get to meet Eddie-he will be the one wearing a black open-fronted black gown, a horsehair wig and be guzzling from a hip flask. By the way, it’s nothing to do with being a solicitor: he just likes to dress like that at weekends.

And, if you're willing to travel many miles (well, six) from the home comforts of Bury, there's the Edgworth Real Ale festival (http://www.edgworth-real-ale-festival.co.uk/) on, er, 25th - 27th September. I see what you mean about buses.

There are actually six festivals on locally during that weekend, so some hard choices will have to be made!

Septem'bury'fest was superb last year. Good beer quality and a friendly atmosphere - if they get the weather this time it'll be hard to beat. Good work lads.
