Hello Peak Oil / Ale -ers

Just returned from hols, during which period I notice that various Twitter messages were sent regarding a beer festival event on May 18th. I tried to construct a response in under 140 characters, but failed miserably - so I'm writing here the "traditional" way.

Happy to attend gatherings, but I can't get Friday 18th off work so no daytime boozing for me, I'm afraid.

Regards Chris

Not sure who is coming yet, but we're aiming for afternoon into evening at The Continental beer festival, Preston on Fri 18 May and a Ramsbottom steam train pub crawl on Sat 30 May (probably).

How was your holiday? Very Happy

Hi ES - looks like Preston on the 18th isn't really practical for me - but count me in for the 30th if that's going ahead.

Holiday was A-OK (though the cycling was cancelled) - you can see some pics linked from my blog (blog link in sig)

Regards Chris

Hello ES - didn't spot that message until too late (when I got an email informing me that I was mentioned in your Tweet). Anyway hope the festival was a success - I was in Halifax until 5PM, so making it to Preston wasn't very practical.

As for

Sat 30 May (probably)
it's a Wednesday (definitely). Please advise.

Thanks ES.....

.......actually I was too gormless to realise that the plan was for June, and I think I'll be unavailable that weekend, probably heading off to Tuscany to do a week's biking and wine-tasting around Cortona at Castello Neve. http://www.3d3world.com/castello/

Will keep you informed - or maybe check the blog for further info.

Regards Chris

I've escaped London and am now back in the NW so may be able to escape for more beers again!

Let me know when / where!

Excellent! Very Happy

We're currently planning (badly!) our next peak ale trip - a steam train pub crawl on the Ramsbottom steam train - 'Rail Ale' Cool

Everyone's very busy, so still trying to set a date. Let's abort 30 June, how about 4 August? Very Happy

4th August is fine for me! Quite a few of the Transition Town Bury crew seem keen this time too ...
