Branch Socials

Saturday 29th July 2023 – Bury

Our July Social will now be a trip to Bury, keeping within Greater Manchester, to save money on transport. The trains are not running on this day.  A System One any bus is £5.00. 

Meet at Stand H Bolton Bus Station to catch the 471 bus to Bury at 12.24 (next bus is 12.36). For those arriving by other means, we will meet at The Trackside at approximately 1.00pm. 

Those attending can decide where to go but likely stops include Broad Street Social (the taps for Brewsmith Brewery) and the Marketside Tavern (formerly Thirsty Fish).   All welcome

Spinning Mule Battle of the Beers

From Friday 28th July, the Spinning Mule on Nelson Square is running a Battle of the Beers competition. Three beers will go head-to-head on the bar and the winner gets a dedicated line in the pub for a month. The Branch chose what we hope is a winning horse, Bank Top Palomino Rising, running against beers chosen by the Pub Manager and by Customers. Look out for it on the bar!
