Mini Update ...



I’ve been in touch with Cotteridge Wines and suggested a small tasting event with snacks etc for our visit.



They have kindly agreed and will be laying on some beers and nibbles.



I will look to tweak the final schedule to allow for a good 45 minutes or so at Cotteridge Wines.


Based on the above maybe the buffet wont be necessary, what does everyone think?

I’m presuming it will just be crisps and nuts, I’d like to stick with a buffet at the Waggon myself, beer don’t soak itself up !!!

Really, Saturday lunchtime 1215, pourquoi?

We could always skip this venue if necessary, Sarah Hughes beers are always doing the rounds at festivals and are probably the most commonly seen at festivals in the London area of all the breweries we’ll visit on this crawl.

I’d like to keep it in if possible. It’s a place I’ve meant to visit for years but never got round to.

Yeah - no worries Chris, just surprised it would be so busy not long after opening. Perhaps it’s family dinner type stuff?

My favourite pub in the Midlands. I will have a mild of course. It can be tricky in there on Saturdays at any time of day. But well worth the wait.

Sounds good just recheck my schedule with the mrs, make sure she hasn’t made plans without my knowledge :)

Not so much family dinners. More like other groups like us and the usual groups of blokes.
