Pubpaper 877 – Manchester Beermoth and Oast House

Posted: 16th October 2016 by santobugtio in Pub Paper, Writing

This weekend saw another visit to Manchester for the day, it being 6 weeks since my birthday trip to the same city.  The girls of my family were going to see Frozen on Ice at the arena, so myself and my parents decided to kill time over a few drinks in the city centre.  I […]

This weekend myself and the family popped over to the Marsden Jazz Festival on Saturday.   Only finding out about the event on the Friday night when I met a friend there for a walk and beer after work, a ton of free performances, lots of pubs and pop up bars and good food appealed.   In […]

Pubpaper 875 – Variety in the Valley

Posted: 1st October 2016 by santobugtio in Pub Paper, Writing

Libertine in Mytholmroyd opened in 2015 and subsequently took a bath in the floods at the back end of the year, a few months ago it re-opened in a rather dryer state.  A rather unassuming single storey building on the corner of Bridge End opposite Sainsburys with a single banner hanging over part of one […]

Pubpaper 874 – 6 years of the Taproom and a beer festival

Posted: 26th September 2016 by santobugtio in Pub Paper, Writing

This article is my 300th for Pubpaper, my first article back nearly 6 years ago being about “The Rise and Fall of the British Pub”.  At the time I recorded that SIBA had reported 420 members, now they have 825 members, a massive jump in 5 years by any scale.  Some things never change, the […]

For the members of CAMRA it is one of the big weeks of the years as the Good Beer Guide 2017 is published and pubs find out if they are still in, are out or have made their first entry.  In the Calderdale region we have a good number of pubs listed, many of them […]

In the past few weeks two new bars have opened in Halifax town centre, the first being the Pump Room opposite the Bus Station, the second being Alexandra, the new beer house and bottle bar on Alexandrea Street near the Victoria Theatre.

Pubpaper 871 – Doing the Manchester Walk

Posted: 5th September 2016 by santobugtio in Pub Paper, Writing

You’ll be glad to hear that I’ve actually sampled some real ale and visited some new pubs over the last week! I’ve still not been to the new Pump Room yet, but this weekend should see me visit as for the first time in many weeks I have no plans. Last week saw my 41st […]

Pubpaper 870 – Pump Rooms new and old and a wrap up.

Posted: 30th August 2016 by santobugtio in Pub Paper, Writing

A lot has took place over the last couple of weeks, Tony has finally opened up The Pump Room, his new micro pub opposite the bus station, named after the sadly departed pub which was based close to the Three Pigeons on New Road.   We’ve had the Brighouse Canal and Music Festival, with the latter […]

Pubpaper 869 – A tour to the south coast

Posted: 23rd August 2016 by santobugtio in Pub Paper, Writing

Last week I took leave of Calderdale and headed down to the South Coast for a well deserved holiday. On the way we stopped off at Oxford for a night before spending a further evening in Gloucester seeing a university friend. Our location for the last 4 nights was Weymouth on the Jurassic Coast and […]

Pubpaper 868 – The Cross Keys Beer Festival

Posted: 14th August 2016 by santobugtio in Pub Paper, Writing

I’d not drank a lot over the last couple of weeks apart from my Saturday session at The Grayson Unity I detailed last week which then partially resulted in sleeping 18 hours on the Sunday. I don’t shift colds and infections quickly any more due to having an immune system less reliable than a Russian […]
