I'd be interested to know what happened to the winter we sampled there last time that was for M&S (the one with sweet mince etc). I searched high and low for it in M&Ss and it could not be found anywhere.
Hi Fritz - We got a bottle in amongst some other bottles as Crimbo prezzie - although we were also interested in it after our tasting trip, we couldn't even drink the bottle between us - bit too many 'hints of fruit and spice' for me. We were disappointed because we have really enjoyed all other Cropton brews but this one was just not to our taste. Not that this helps you find a bottle but just to let you know it did hit the shelves.
Cheers for the book. Hope to see you both at Cropton.
Call me a Puff if you want, but i might not be camping after all. The missus is looking into hiring a cottage in Cropton for 3 nights over that weekend so we can take the dog up as well and have a day out doing some walking.
ill let you know either way
Dazco your a puff - there thats got it out the way Eh!, you know the pub has a cottage for rent if its any good to you, keep it quiet though cos its not unknown for certain people here to slip quietly into the warmth when your looking the other way and find a spot on the floor or a setee. If you look around there the easy ones to spot after a few s - they usually wear pink shirts and very tight hot pants. (the bloke one do anyway.)
Me Ill be the one in the mini skirt and fishnets with red high heels !!!
(ignore the beard though)
I was deliberately ignoring this thread in the hope it would go away - too bloody cold in February !! - but now Doug is ""rounding us up" and Angus is putting forward volunteers I can hardly lose face - so booked the Friday off work today - my tent took a bit of a battering at Aviemore too - grit in all the tent poles -but I am sure it will survive one more trip - 400 miles from here! hopefully the snow will be gone by then.
Chizz - Usually we do this one in January so I thought of all those softies that might think it a tad cold so I moved it nearer to spring time instead - it will be almost tropical down in Yorkshire bye then.
Be really nice to see you all down from the top end.
