To Dunham Massey & Beyond
Safely back in Bury, we called in the Trackside for a nightcap or two. The board was looking depleted-they’re closing for a few days and were letting the beers run out, but unusually there were a few gems to be had. The Slaters wasn’t bad and Otley O-garden, their tasty take on a certain wheat beer, was very good.
I was just going to make my contented way home when fate intervened in the form of Eddie, the eager, legal beagle. Apparently a new EU directive stated that I had to stay in the Trackside with him and watch the beers go one by one. Luckily our tipple-Phoenix Shamrock, being fresh on, lasted until it was the sole beer remaining. Eventually, taking the hint of chairs being stacked beside us, we meandered off into British Summer Time.
