    Great to see everyone yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed catching up with old friends.

    Thought the crawl itself was a bit chaotic but didn’t personally care because this one was more social event than serious pub and beer ticking for me.
    And in the cold light of day I am a bit amazed we all managed to be in the same place at the same time for a photo, and in a Thornbridge pub as well, who would have thought 🤣
    Also quite surprised I did as many pubs on the day as I did with some good new ones for me. Also thought the quality and choice of ale was good also, but then I do like Oakham and the T Brewery…
    I’m sure it will be discussed but I did miss a timed running order and would like to see this back for the next one.

    I'll second that emotion.

    I went outside for a fone call and said feck I'll get on the train, I'd been up since 1230 that morning ! A great catch up. Did Ray ever pay for a bus or a tram or are him and Jacinta thumbing for a lift home on the slip road of spaggetti junction as I write ???

    Great day apart from me and Steve unable to find the station and platform in time for our allotted train , managed one an hour later without extra charge but to late for the last train out of Basingstoke, so a £25.00 taxi home.
    Managed seven new pubs from the 10 I visited so not bad but gave up note taking at an early stage so any reviews will be sketchy in the least, The Bull probably being my favourite.
    Already looking forward to the next one.

    ... apart from one miscreant who was still off piste somewhere between the Burning Soul Taproom, Rock & Roll Brewhouse and 1000 Trades at that time...

    Great to see everybody after a near two year hiatus,and hope you all got home safely.Some fantastic new pub visits ,the Plus Bus ticket option really came in useful........if only I knew where the buses stopped in the city centre.

    See you on the next one.

    Something to do with Bulls and China shops.

    Looks like a great day out. Really disappointed I couldn't make this one - the only Friday in October I couldn't do

    I'll look forward to reading the reviews - always love drinking in Brum and it sounds like there are a fair few new places to check out since I was last there. Hope I can make the next crawl, wherever that might be...

    I've had trouble finding the wormhole into New Street in the past, and with most locals unable (or unwilling) to give me a steer...!
