I was asked earlier today why I haven't mentioned on ReARM the Liverpool Beer Festival which runs this week from Thursday to Saturday, when I have previously written about festivals in Wigan, St Helens, Preston, Manchester, Scotland Road and Atherton (as well as Southport, obviously). The answer is that tickets sold out a couple of months ago and you can't get in on the door, so there's little point in mentioning it. If you want to know what you're missing, a report in the Liverpool Echo can be found here.
However, if you do fancy going to a beer festival over the next 3 days, the 28th Fleetwood Beer Festival is on too ~ click here for details. I've not been there for a few years, but it was always a good one.
