Chalkers’ Snooker Club, Newtown, New Mills, Derbyshire, 05 – 06 April 2013.
Starting this Friday is North East Cheshire and High Peak CAMRA’s ‘Hills and Mills’ beer festival. With an excellent turnout on its first night in 2011, bettered only by last year’s, the local CAMRA branch covering Tameside, parts of Stockport and the High Peak have opted for a third one. Since its first festival, it has started to establish itself as a regular fixture in the real ale fanatic’s calendar.
Again, the venue is Chalkers’ Snooker Club, Newtown, the festival begins at 1200 on Friday 13 April, running till 2300 hours with a similar time the following Saturday. There will be live music on the Saturday night till closing time.
As usual, there will be a wide range of locally brewed cask conditioned ales mostly from the North West of England, Derbyshire and Yorkshire, plus a selection of real ciders and perries. Admission is free with the venue being easy to find on public transport. High Peak’s 199 service stops near the door with New Mills Newtown being the nearest railway station. Feel free to download the latest version of the Hills and Mills Poster, another one of my creations.
