Hare & Hounds Beer Festival
This week sees the launch of the first of three beer festivals planned for this year at the Hare & Hounds in Holcombe Brook. As these are not only the biggest pub festivals held in the country, but some of the largest beer festivals per se, they naturally draw a lot of attention.
The beer list has now been made public and you can expect some 220 beers and around 15 ciders and perries. All the beer will be served via handpump in the pub-no beer tents here-and we are under starting orders on Thursday. The festival will run until Sunday April 1st or until I manage to drink it dry.
The Hare & Hounds is open all day and can easily be reached using the 472/474 bus from Bury interchange.
