The proposed micropub in Fulwood previously mentioned is going ahead and will be the sister venue to the Ecclesall Ale Club, run by the guys from Brew Foundation. The new bar & bottle shop is the Fulwood Ale Club, located at 4 Brooklands Avenue and is due to open some point in November. You can follow them on Twitter @AleClubFul. Thor’s Tipi bar returns to the Peace Gardens for it’s usual Christmas season alongside the Christmas market on 22nd November, staying a little longer this year, until 5th January. After having cask beer for the first couple of years, there was no ale last year which was disapointing (guess mulled wine and hot chocolate is the big sellers!). They are promising a bigger venue this year with a double tent space and extended choice on the bar, the online drinks menu shows a Thor’s Pale Ale so we’ll see! The food this year is pizza. The Green Room will only be opening in the evening from November, which means “Butties to Banquets” will no longer be serving breakfasts and lunches from their kitchen. The outside catering will still be available, check their Facebook page for contact details. In the evenings the programe of music and other events are now back in full swing following the summer holidays and the guest ale has recently been provided by Loxley Brewery.
