Last but by no means least in my round hop of what’s on for the BackInMacc tour tomorrow (Sat 13th September 2104), is one of my favourite pubs anywhere. Friendly local, music venue, community pub, beer geek heaven, it manages to pull them all off at one time or another, making it a must visit.

BackInMacc visit to RedWillow Brewery

No beer tour worth its salt doesn’t involve a brewery tour and as one of driving forces behind the event, Toby and Caroline agreed to host us again for a repeat of what was an excellent few hours last year.

None of the amazing pulled pork this time though I’m afraid, far too much to do in the brewery at the moment to allow time for a few hours of gentle pork massage.. ;)

Runaway Brewery Treacle Tap Takeover

Runaway Brewery Treacle Tap Takeover

RB_smallAs you may recall me mentioning, one of this years BackInMacc aspirations was to try and get some of the newer start-up breweries involved, giving them an opportunity to show us what they can do, and of course for us a chance to taste something new. Runaway fit that bill perfectly having only being brewing commercially from June this year.

As a one-off special, the guys at the Treacle Tap are…

Hopping mad Shane Warns of the aged and fresh – #BackInMacc

Oooh, that title…(hides)

Just a little teaser of a couple of brews from Cheshire Brewhouse appearing at BackInMacc. One will be completely new, launched on the day, the other old and exclusive as the only kegged version available anywhere.

The first will be “John Barleycorn’s Green Hop Temptress” a fresh green hopped pale ale, fresh being the optimum word here, launched at Treacle Tap. The other…

"The East Indiaman Story" a guest post by David Shipman for #BackInMacc

“The East Indiaman Story” a guest post by David Shipman for #BackInMacc

IMG_20140728_163229327If I look back on the stories I have, or could have, told over the last two years or so, I’d probably have to start all of them along the lines of “It started over a beer”.  This is no exception.  It’s a story in its own right, but really its just a chapter in a longer story that isn’t yet complete.  But it is becoming a significant chapter.  Enough though of the self-serving prelude.  Let’s get…

Macclesfield update #BackInMacc

We are getting ever closer to September and quite rightly, a few of you have asked questions on updates for #BaccInMacc. Things have moved on a pace behind the scenes, but without proper confirmation it’s been difficult to share anything for fear it falls through. But here goes, we have some great things lined up and some still to be announced very soon.

Itinerary wise we are looking like this, a…

Birmingham Beer Bash 2 - Smiley, Happy, People

Birmingham Beer Bash 2 – Smiley, Happy, People

IMG_9807This weekend saw the second Birmingham Beer Bash come and go at The Bond Co in Digbeth, “Buuurminum”. The sun shone, it was bloody hot (generally) and as per last year, everyone seemed to be having a damn good time.

In another repeat of last year, I looked at the beer list and was muchos excited by what I saw. I made mental “I MUST have that” notes and pretty much ignored them, shambling randomly…

Los Muertos Brewing Co (Part One)

logoAs an Englishman/Brit, holidays abroad usually means one of two things dependant on destination. Either an amazing selection of beer in certain parts of Europe or a sea of relatively bland yellow fizz in others, with a similar story further afield for long-haul destinations. As a seasoned beer traveller, very early on in the planning stages for our “non-beer” holiday, I always try and do a bit of…
