Christmas may be several weeks away but, as always, the shops are gearing up for it. Summerseat Garden Centre is always worth a visit to see their Christmas set up which is revamped every year. This year there’s everything you could want for Christmas- trees, lights and decorations but, to add to the festivities, the food hall has been converted into a “Christmas Market” with lots of stalls groaning under the weight of all the tasty delights.


One of the stalls is packed with bottled beer from some of our local breweries and I’m pleased to announce that taking pride of place is our own Forever Bury beer. Owners John and Judith Ainscow were only to happy to become the latest outlet for our ever popular beer. John said, “My father used to cover Bury’s games for the Bury Times and many people will know him by his pen name ‘Ranger’ so I’ve always had a soft spot for the club. The work that the Forever Bury team do is so impressive and as 10p from every bottle sold goes to their cause we felt we had to help.”


Helen Craven, the Food & Beer Manager at the Garden Centre said, “It’s selling really well. We’ve had 8 cases so far but we will need some more for the weekend Beer Tasting”.


If you have never tried our beer and would like to sample some before buying then get along to Summerseat Garden Centre this weekend, the Beer Tasting is on Saturday and Sunday. Whether you like the beer or not there’s something for everyone there so if you were planning a visit or if you’ve never been before why not get along this weekend.


Our Forever Bury beer is also available at The Lord Raglan, Nangreaves, home of the Leyden Brewery. It can also be found at Asda, Pilsworth as well as Threshers, The Local and Wine Rack throughout the North West. If you have difficulty getting hold of some or you want a few cases delivering locally then see Dave at the Cabin or email him at
