New brewery & other news

A new microbrewery has opened called the Blackedge Brewery.  It's a 2.5 barrel brewery in Horwich, Bolton, on the edge of the West Pennine Moors.  The website states that it is now in full production and at present just shows one beer, a 3.8% pale ale called HoP, but with the promise of more to come.  Another to keep an eye out for.  I like the fact that the pump clip is shaped like a guitar plectrum! 
Thanks to Ken Worthington of Wigan CAMRA for letting me know.

Pub reopens
The Arion pub in Kenilworth Road, Ainsdale, Southport, re-opened on 15th August after an 18 months closure, during which time there were rumours that it would never be opened as a pub again. It is operated by Enterprise Inns and is under the stewardship of Jacki and Andy Phillips. They have a good food menu, including home cooked dishes, and at present have one real ale on offer, Marston's Pedigree, in good condition, and they are assessing how well this sells as they hope to eventually offer guest beers. The pub has been smartly refurbished, with a pleasant outside area. 
Thanks to Mike Perkins of Southport CAMRA for this info.
