Holborns Ale Tasting Night in Ormskirk on Thursday 18th April

I've teamed up with Holborn Ales in Ormskirk to offer a bottled ale tasting night on Thursday 18th April 2013. For £10 (per person) you will get to try half a bottle of six carefully selected ales picked by myself as well as some nibbles to keep the beer munchies at bay. I'll introduce each beer, guide you through sampling it and you'll get a chance to provide Holborns with your opinion in the form of a group 'baron rating'.

The beers that I've selected are:
Tickets are available from Holborn Wines (Malt House Business Park, Ormskirk) which is in the same area as Alladin's Cave (the fancy dress shop). The evening will be hosted in La Cantina which is opposite Holborn Wines and provides a very pleasant atmosphere to be drinking and chatting.

Doors open at 7:30 for an 8pm start and there might even be a little something for you to sip whilst we wait for everyone to arrive.  You should also be able to buy bottles to take away of any of the ales that you like.

Tickets are limited so please get yourself down to Holborns to secure your place! If you need any more details then why not contact Holborns direct on 01695 577016, via Twitter @Holborncaskales or message them via their Facebook page.

Hope to see you there!

Update: The evening was a great success and hopefully was a bit of an eye-opener for some about the range of ales that are out there. Everyone was game to take part in my group baron rating so here are the results:

Bank Top Dark Mild04770
