    Visiting The Furnace was going to be one of the highlights of the Derby trip for me. I've been rather impressed with the 3-4 beers of theirs I've tried previously.

    It opened on 11th November. I popped in on Friday night as a consolation on missing out on Derby - thought it was a pretty decent set up and thankfully not too packed. Lots of lovely Fyne Ales and Burning Sky beers on.

    The website is a bit vague about it actually being open now, but the twitter feed at the bottom does mention that the pub is up and running.

    Yes, it's the former Trident on Mitre Street.

    As I ordered all 78 beers for the Rochdale Beer Festival I'd better choose one as my BOTW.

    Runners Up (for me) were Blue Bee Comet Pale & North Riding Mosaic.

    The winner is going to be Magpie Thieving Rogue a 4.5% hoppy, golden ale with a long lasting bitter finish
    (as I wrote for the programme tasting notes.)

    I've ordered some for the Baum in a couple of weeks as well.

    The Beer Of The Festival was voted as Pictish Bullion, so that's a trip to the brewery sorted to award the certificate.

    All the way to a unit on an industrial estate in Rochdale that I've been to several times before.

    They should have voted for a North Riding beer so I could have gone up to Scarborough
    to visit Stuart & Karen again at the pub and get a trip round his new brewery.

    Sounds like a lack of advice/pressure at the voting boxes! Who'd a' thought those Lancs folk wouldn't have put their pin in your preferred yorkie away-day? Pah!

    There were quite a few I'd had before of course, but out of the ones I hadn't had I didn't try 6.
