Contact Lawrence Devaney - Telephone details are in the paper/email copy of the newsletter
Email with 'Real Ale Appreciation' as the subject

The primary aim of this group is to expand members knowledge of the brewing process through visits and talks; to investigate the spectacular growth in micro pubs/breweries; to experience the phenomenal range of beer products and to have the opportunity to socialise with like-minded members. Short to medium term our Group visits breweries, unique pubs, and beer festivals on a monthly basis that are accessible with local public transport. However, long term aspirations cover visits to further afield aided by commercial coach operators. This is an all-inclusive group and so any Bramhall U3A member will be very welcome to join.

Upcoming visits

25th July - Mounting Stone, Bramhall

Firstly an apology for the somewhat late notice about our next meeting - I can only blame the warm weather! Its now coming up to a year since we started our group and I thought why not go back to where it all started the Mounting Stone in the centre of Bramhall. This interesting micro-pub has changed since we visited them, they now have the tiniest of breweries in there. we could be lucky and be able to try one of their own brews. Otherwise we can enjoy the other beers, regulars and changing ones and have our usual sociable meeting.

Gather for 2pm on the Wednesday the 25th July at the Mounting Stone, 8 Woodford Rd, Bramhall. SK7 1JJ

See in advance what they are up to on their Facebook page: -

Most of you probably know it but any of the buses going through Bramhall will drop you off a minutes walk from the front door and Bramhall station leaves you with a 5 to 10 minute walk to the pub.
