Next up, a short walk across the centre of town, was the Alexandra Beer House. In this place you are definitely spoilt for choice if you like your bottled or canned craft beers. Its like a beer library, with shelf after shelf of different beers. Where to start? Well with the cask ale of course! Lovely refreshing, easily drinkable pint of YuLu!
Then, a 5 minute walk back down the hill in the rain to get the train to Sowerby Bridge and the Hogs Head. Slighty disappointed with my pint in here, tasted a little sulphery to me. Either too much Sodium Metabisuphate used to kill the yeast, or some pipes not flushed through fully after cleaning? Everyone else's was fine though. Don't forget the footpath bridge and the ginnel through the shops (its not on Google maps!)
Then back on the train to Hebden Bridge and wandering straight past the station parcel office bar, which seemed to have been renamed to the Pig & Barrel, without even noticing, on the way out, we head to Calans, which lived up to its reputation every little bit, especially as the weather improved and allowed us to sit outside. The savoury swirls were an added bonus! Yum!
