A Quick Pint at Beer Shack, Hucknall

It's amazing to think since it's opened up to now we hadn't visited Beer Shack over in Hucknall but a choice training run for Jemma and I took us past on Saturday morning. It was part of a 12.5 mile run so I felt it only right to ask Jemma if she fancied a beer that evening in lieu of her efforts.

So that evening we drove out to Hucknall (Although I only had a half as driver) to sample the delights that Beer Shack had in store for us. It's nothing more than a shack on the outside but when you're out in search of real ale it's easy to look past such insignificances.
