thanks a lot for the answers. moorbrook looks promising , think we will try it and some other pubs on the way.
german beer is not so interesting for us, because its available all year for us ^^.
Went to Brown Hare in Penwortham last night. Better to have a meal there instead of going in for a casual drink. Decent ale, bit dear though.

A tad quiet on the Preston pub front at the moment but being January this isn't a surprise.
Plau on Friargate are still 'plauing' along trying to get the place open as soon as possible. February was the last time mentioned and it seems to be on course (that is until they find the corpse of Alfred the Great buried underneath there).
The Ale Emporium next to the Ferret is up for sale and the current occupants will be moving out soonish due to personal reasons. A shame as the beer there has always been good but the place has been frighteningly quiet when I've been in, even on a Friday/Saturday night.
The Guild Ale House has now opened the 'Guild Lounge' upstairs to give the place much needed space and extra seating. The room is available for hire as a function room or meeting place but will not be having a bar installed. Meanwhile Gary's bottled beer range has gone from from strength to strength with some impressive new arrivals.
The Black Horse, who recently lost it's landlord to the nearby Market Tavern, is now under new management and with it the guest ales have returned (unusual for a Robinson's pub). The Market Tavern, despite an extensive refurb by owners Heineken, is still pants with beer from the usual boring Heinenken list. I've been in twice and both times been the only person in there bar the staff.
Meanwhile in Chorley the 234th micropub has opened in the town centre. 'Speakeasy' which is owned by the people who run 'Bootleggers' is on Chapel Street along with Ale Station, Shepherd's Hall Ale House and the ever improving Crown Hotel. As mentioned before Chorley really has become a great place for beer with the Malt & Hops and Bob Inn joining the aforementioned venues in providing a varied and well kept range of cask and keg. Latch, a micro cocktail bar, provides something a bit different if you do wish.
