Hope Valley Beer and Cider Festival, Day 2

Another day, another trip to the beer festival. Holidays are lovely. A few more sampled tonight. First up was Stainless, also by Stancill brewery. A classic pale ale, the best of the day. 

Next came Ossett White Rabbit pale ale, which was ok, but not as good as the Stainless. 


Tonight’s cider offering was Biddenden Bushell’s Kentish cider, a classic cider taste. 

The Norfolk Arms, Ringinglow

A walk from Redmires reservoir to Ringinglow and back today. Luckily that also incorporated this excellent walker-friendly pub. Walkers welcome. Muddy boots welcome. Cyclists welcome. On an improving (weather wise) bank holiday weekend Saturday there were still a good few tables available inside, and loads outside. 

Lots of choice on the menu too. The burgers were very tempting, but in the end I went for the staple that is the club sandwich. Simple, but easy to get wrong. No errors here though, a very good club with a simple side salad and some chips. 


And a good selection of ales and bottled beers too:-


A pint of Stancill Barnsley bitter (a classic bitter) and a Timmermans Framboise. Definitely MOFAD approved!
