First of a tour of the bars around Chorlton. I drank something called Chortlon Gold but I am not certain who brewed it. There was a good range of beers on sale here but I have not listed them all.

I was with a group of friends and it was decided to tour of the cafe bars close to Chorlton tram stop, I had not done any of them before so I agreed. Whilst this is not my idea of a pub, it did have a great range of beers on, and it was good to see so many new bars open in this area.
