We now have a plan for the Manchester and Huddersfield Twissup (http://pencilandspoon.blogspot.com/search/label/%23twissup) (the joint visit was the winner) thanks to Dominic from Marble Brewery (http://www.marblebeers.co.uk/) and Rich from myBrewerytap (http://www.mybrewerytap.com/).

We meet at Manchester Piccadilly train station at 11.30am. From here we’ll go to Marble Brewery for a tour with Dominic and Colin and then to the Marble Arch (http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/15/1519/Marble_Arch/Manchester) for some beers. After this Dominic will lead the procession to Bar Fringe (http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/14/14473/Bar_Fringe/Manchester) and then The Angel (http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/35/35262/Angel/Manchester) (or maybe the other way around).

From here we head back to Manchester Piccadilly and jump on a train to Huddersfield. It’s about £12 return so not too much for everyone. There are two possible stops - Stalybridge (http://www.buffetbar.org/) or Marsden - but we’ll only do one. Marsden has the Riverhead (http://www.ossett-brewery.co.uk/Home/Riverhead/tabid/1681/Default.aspx) pub and brewery which sounds pretty good and could be a food stop. After this it’s back on the train to Huddersfield.

In Huddersfield we stop at The Grove (http://www.groveinn.co.uk/) (dribble at the beer list (http://www.groveinn.co.uk/now.htm)), either first or last. The other options are The Kings Head (http://www.the-kings-head-huddersfield.co.uk/), The Star Inn (http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/42/4247/Star_Inn/Lockwood) and the Rat and Ratchet (http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/32/3293/Rat_and_Ratchet/Huddersfield) taking us up until around 10-11pm and then most will need to head off. If anyone needs hotels then you’ll need to sort that out yourselves, either in Manchester or Huddersfield. Nothing is yet planned for the Sunday but I might be in Leeds for a few beers and a roast dinner.

How does that sound? It’s a busy day but these things aren’t leisurely ambles around a couple of pubs, this is a bloody Twissup for goodness sake and we do things a bit differently!! Now get those train tickets booked!

If anyone hasn’t signed up yet then do so here (http://pencilandspoon.blogspot.com/2010/08/twissup-we-are-going-to.html) or you might miss out as we’ll do everything else via email from now on.
