Yesterday daddy set out with the boys early to head out on the Ale Trail once again. A bacon butty in Leeds was the strategy in order to have a hot pie and peas in Stalybridge – only when we arrived there was no hot food on – Strategy Failure 🙁
However the sun was glorious so we managed a couple of pints – as we sat back enjoying the beer and conversation Stalybridge went from being very quiet to super busy as all the other ale trailers rocked up.
Lee came up with the wisdom of the day – missing out Greenfield (as there I no beer garden of consequence) so that we could head straight to Marsden and stay in the sun and crucially ahead of the queue of trailers 🙂
We enjoyed a light lunch at the RiverHead Tap pub again, in the sunshine and following three pints there we head on to Slaithwaite where once again we sat out in the sunshine, enjoyed two pints and a warm pork pie – a GOOD pork pie at that 🙂
Then on to Huddersfield where there was a huge beer festival going on right outside the railway station so we didn’t bother heading into the pub – just a cheeky couple of ales in the Huddersfield sunshine 🙂 oh, and a nice ice-cream 🙂
Then it was back on the train for Mirfield (our final train journey) and a short walk over to the Flower Pot – that’s right another couple (well for daddy one was a coke) of beverages in the sunshine.
We grabbed a taxi up to Grangemoor and Grameen for a curry where we bumped into Grandma and Granddad who were out for a meal also.
The great news was that meant a lift home afterwards 🙂 Winner.
A fantastic day with sunburn to prove it and incredibly no headache this morning 🙂
