Winter Warmer Wander 1: Northern Quarter

  • January 4 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

A chance to sample some old ales, stouts, porters, strong bitters and other beers which are just that little bit stronger than normal to ward off the winter chill.

Each December into January, the Stockport and South Manchester branch of CAMRA runs its "Winter Warmer Wander" promotion. The idea is to visit different pubs and try a beer of 4.5% ABV or over. Full details of participating pubs and prizes are here:

http://www.ssmcamra.co.uk/ http://www.ssmcamra.co.uk/images/www.pdf

We start off at the ornate Marble Arch on Rochdale Road (about 8 minutes' walk from Victoria station or Shudehill bus station for anyone who doesn't know it), then take in the recently reopened (after 22 years!) Lower Turks Head on Shudehill. Our other stops are 57 Thomas Street on....Thomas Street, and one of Manchester's institutions, the Castle on Oldham Street.

A fine way to start the new year!

UPDATE: Approx itinerary 7pm Marble Arch, 8pm Lower Turks Head, 8.45 57 Thomas Street, 9.30/9.45 Castle. 

Winter Warmer Wander 2 is on Friday 10 January and visits the six participating pubs in Chorlton.

      Yes it was an excellent turnout- one of our best ever- although in fairness 57 Thomas St was always going to be a squeeze and the Castle is usually very busy at weekends. I meant to add that the big turnout also meant it was difficult for me to get to speak to everyone who came, for which my apologies.

    Double booked, had arranged to meet some friends. I've arranged to meet them at Marble Arch so I can say hello at the very least!

    January 4

  • mark f

    I'll see you all at the Turks - I may get to the Marble Arch but I doubt it (too early for me!)

    I'm sorry I won't be able to make this one now - I'm overloaded with a work project for delivery next week and am in Rochdale at the moment, so can't just pop out and join you for a couple. I was so looking forward to this one as the pubs are all great, and am mad at myself for not getting more work done last week!

    Hopefully there will be another one at some point though and I will definitely go on that.

    • Richard

      Sorry to hear that, Becky, but I hope you can join us on another event soon.

    Going to drop out - I'm on another pub crawl the night before and as my liver is almost foie gras thanks to festive indulgence I don't think it will cope with two pub crawls in two days.

    January 2

    • Steve D

      There's another crawl (Didsbury Diners) in the Northern Quarter Saturday night. Wondering if it would be possible to attend both doing the old toilet window trick.

      1 · January 2

    • Richard

      Yes Steve. As I have commented in that event, I will contact Elaine on the night to see where they are. I want to do the 4 on the list but should have time to find them before the night is out. Rough timetable 7 Marble, 8 Turks, 8.45 57 Thomas St 9.30 Castle thereafter. .....

  • jeffrey mcalister

    As I can't make this event will have to make up for it and have extra beer for New Year...

    1 · December 10

    • Richard

      Have some extra too at WWW2 in Chorlton the following Friday

      December 10

    • Richard

      Will the beers there be on you then, Louise?:-)

      November 28

    • Louise Bolotin

      I don't think my wallet will stretch to a round for everyone! Not unless I win the lottery...

      1 · November 28

    It's a provisional yes from me.

    1 · November 27

      November 28

  • Joanne Eames

    Ooh sounds great - and all on my doorstep! I think you have finally given up hope that I would eventually get round to organising a Northern Quarter pub crawl Richard, but glad you have :-)

    November 27

    • Richard

      As it's a 7pm start expect to see you by the time we reach....the Castle at the end (only joking!)

      November 27

    • Joanne Eames

      Ha, yes - I'll try and make it for then :-)

      November 27

    Sounds good, will try and make it!
