    So The Market Tavern is now.... The Market Tap.

    Boasting 6 cask pumps and 16 kegs taps with a 50/50 split of Heineken/free of tie beer (Heineken must be desperate to give so much away) the guys from Wings & Beer are stating a complete refurb is pending along with a fairly slow transition from what it is now to a bar serving a mixture of high end craft ale and more mainstream beer from Heineken. Food and cocktails would be the final addition once the facilities are installed.

    Can't argue if that's how it ends up being!

    Yeah saw that on social media. Fair play to them if they do it. Itíll be a welcome addition to the current crawl, involving MB, Vinyl Tap, Orchard and Plug and Taps. Happy days!

    Two launches over the weekend.

    Micropub Wilkins & Pye in Longton was meet with mixed reviews as whilst the place looks the part the beer offerings aren't great from a place that has 'craft' written all over it. The two cask beers for example were a rebadged Beer Brothers bitter and Jennings Cumberland whilst Beavertown's Neck Oil was the only option on keg that wasn't a lager. Still early days and hopefully the landlord will listen to the punters about what beer to serve.

    Yesterday Vinyl Tap opened its doors with a launch party featuring local band The Templebys. Six cask pumps serving the likes of Wild Weather, Arbor, Blackjack and Sirencraft with a Kernel IPA on keg amongst the tied Henienken products. Cloudwater, Shindigger and Atom cans in the fridge. Really great place with a huge selection of Vinyl records for you to choose whilst downing a pint or two or whilst enjoying breakfast and a coffee.

    Was in Vinyl Tap on Saturday night, it was mobbed. Fair put me in mind of the early 80s in the Moonraker, with its muso vibe (yes Iím that old), with standing room only and a few familiar faces from bands from that time in attendance. Proper nostalgia rush! Place looks nicely done but couldnít really see much for all the folk in there.

    I like the name Vinyl Tap - very 1960's

    That Ballers is looking pretty smart.

    It's not the Macs bell ends, it's the guys who own Switch (Squires) and took over Applejax in Chorley.

    Not big on the American themed shite, but might be decent to watch footy, competition for Wings & Beer.

    It can't be any worse than the previous 2/3 incumbents! Have to say I'm a fan of Wings & Beer with their very decent food and ale though I've never been to watch a sporting event. Hope this new place doesn't lower their trade too much.

    Elsewhere tonight see's the opening of Beer Box, Bamber Bridge's second micropub. Six cask pumps on the preview pics but not sure what else to expect.

    Increasingly decent little crawl going on in Brig now. I could start at Hob Inn, then Brig & Barrel, Withy Arms, Beer Box and finish off in Walton Arms (possibly - bit hit & miss in my experience) before heading back to Walton-le-Dale.

    Anyone with knowledge of Brig will notice there are a number of places I missed out in that list - that was not a mistake.

    Now if we could just muster a promotion and then have a subsequent coffin procession to enjoy these establishments
