I shouldn't be too far away. Can you get me a Radler in please, Neil.
And an easy quiz question for you - why would I be drinking a Radler ? :)
Maybe because of this?:
Spoiler: show
The term Radler originates with a drink called Radlermass (literally “cyclist liter”) that was originally created by Innkeeper Franz Kugler in a small town named Deisenhofen, just outside Munich. During the great cycling boom of the Roaring Twenties, Kugler created a bicycle trail from Munich, through the woods, which led directly to his drinking establishment. On a beautiful June day in 1922, a reported “13,000 cyclists” crashed Kugler’s party. Fast running out of beer, he blended it 50/50 with a lemon soda he could never seem to get rid of, and the rest is history.

Bingo, but it ideally needs to be made with a German helles beer if they've got any on tap :-D

By an astonishing stroke of luck, and as a fitting beer to go with my picture of the day, they've got Blackbeard on tap from The Watermill Brewery, Windermere - so I'll try a pint of that, please :)

They have a fair selection here at McCulloughs so Blackbeard for Bobins, Marstons Pedigree for me, Thwaites for Bob and you Neil?
While you make up your mind I'm going to put some music on as the group are having a break!

Time to get some music on the juke box and a sing-a-long-a Route 68

And for my next Lancashire ale from the list

I'll have a sup of this then down to the indian, and back to the Stone Trough. We pass quite close to Ribblehead Viaduct on the next leg, I may whizz off just far enough to get a pic then back on the planned trail. Its country I am familiar with and Dent the target for the day is a very picturesque little place.

Bit disappointed in the names of some of the Lancashire beers....the Burnley Brewery Moorhouse names quite a few of them after motorways.... One to link with East Lancs big connection with Cricket.
