Super Bowl Sunday Pub Crawl

Recommended Posts

Probably worth having a fresh post on this.

 

Here's the route:

Around 3.00pm ish - start at Southampton Arms (Kentish Town or Gospel Oak Station). http://www.timeout.com/london/bars-pubs/southampton-arms

We could easily get stuck here for a while. It's one of the best real ale pubs in London. Warning that it's cash only and a fair walk from the nearest ATM.

 

20 minute walk, or 5 minutes on the train, to

 

The Grafton (Kentish Town West or Kentish Town)- http://www.timeout.com/london/bars-pubs/the-grafton http://thegraftonnw5.co.uk/ It's a bit trendy, but still a good boozer, with about 8 beers on tap.

 

3 minute walk to

 

Tapping the Admiral - (Kentish Town West or Kentish Town) http://www.tappingtheadmiral.co.uk/index.html Card carrying CAMRA members get 30p off a pint.

 

10 minute walk to

 

Honest Burgers (Camden Town) - London's best burgers. Nice little selection of craft beers to wash them down - including their own Honest Pale from the Beavertown Brewery.

 

10 minute walk to

 

Brewdog (Camden Town) - http://www.timeout.com/london/bars-and-pubs/brewdog-1 http://www.brewdog.com/bars/camden You probably know what you're getting here. Uber-trendy, expensive, everything on keg. Why bother? Because they still make good beer, there's often something interesting on guest, it's a long walk to Euston and it would be rude to walk past. It's also usually fairly quiet on a Sunday.

 

20 minute walk to

 

Euston Tap (Euston or Euston Square) - legendary craft beer pub outside Euston Station. On a Sunday evening, we may even get a seat :)

 

Aiming to be at the Euston Tap by 7.

Crikey Graham .. you're obviously aging a lot better than me if you still have the stamina for all that and can keep going until 3am !! A full 12hour session .. many many many moons ago maybe!

I'll be on the Coke at SB&G - the beer's revolting, and Strongbow goes right through me!

Coca cola I hope Graham :)

I will try and join you guys, haven't been to an event since the Thanksgiving Buttfumble game!

 

Unfortunately I have a very inconvenient hospital appointment at 9am on Monday morning! Tried to re-arrange but next time available is in June! So a quiet SB on the sofa, but up for a few drinks earlier in the day.

Andy and I will be arriving at Paddington just after 3:30 pm so will head for the Grafton. Shame to miss the Southampton but perhaps it's just as well......

See you tomorrow Wespie, shame I had to give the SB&G a miss, but should be a good one.

Started a bit early with a couple in the Shoreditch Brewdog - including a free beer :)

Lining the stomach with a Dukes Brew and Cue brunch. Oh, it's the Beavertown brewery tap... Well isn't that a coincidence?

Very enjoyable session chaps (sorry I didn't get there early enough for a couple more at the Southampton Arms). Thanks for coming.

Thank you for sorting it all out Graham - what a great day it was. Butlers pick in the dying seconds maybe wasn't as clear through my "beer goggles" as it might have otherwise been, but I wouldn't change it for the world!
