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

27th September - Stockport

Hardly a month goes by without us hearing of a new beer outlet, be it a micropub, a traditional pub reopening or as in the case of our September venue a several times recycled property in Stockport’s Market Square.

Project 53 is the Mobberley Brewhouse’s second Tap House and from initial reaction is going to prove to be a popular venue in this area. Just to ensure that it can be found its formal address is 22 Market Place. SK1 1EU. Basically, facing the entrance to the historic Market Hall and next door to the now closed down Produce Hall. If you want to check out their Facebook page the link is: -

We are back to our usual 4th Thursday of the month, the 27th September. 2:00pm until 4:00pm which gives us plenty of time to catch up and have a couple of beers. It’s open from early lunch time through to around 11pm and boasts its own Pizza bar so why not turn up early (around 1:30pm) and join me for a pre-meeting munch. This is right in the middle of the Stockport Beer week (which actually last 10 days but who wants to be pedantic) and if you would like more details on this event check this link to Stockport & South Manchester CAMRA’s web site: -

As this venue is central Stockport It shouldn’t be necessary to provide transport details I am sure you will all find the place without any difficulty. Put it in the diary and see you there on the 27th.
