Pub Crawling Blogs

Look, the fact is, if you want to read about drunken escapades, this isn’t the blog you’re looking for.

We’re bookworms, nerds, squares; taking things too seriously is what we do for fun; we hate having hangovers; and that’s unlikely to change as we daily grow ever more middle-aged and becardiganed.

But don’t despair — there are plenty of bloggers less po-faced and/or sedentary than us who are barely ever out of the pub, and here are four you might enjoy.

1. The Ultimate London Pub Crawl

Once a month, twenty-somethings Andy and Greg pick a bit of London and visit every pub there — every pub. They generally get drunk, flirt, make friends, fear for their lives, and then miss their bus or tube home.

2. My Pub Odyssey

Pubman goes to pubs, mostly in London, and says what he reckons about them without even a dab of gilding on the lily: ‘It is a fairly normal little grubby touristy pub.  Grubby is a compliment in Pub Odyssey world…’

3. Walking and Crawling

Adam walks and drinks and walks and drinks. His long posts are full fresh air, verdant fields, and well-earned pints of beer in Scottish country pubs. It a close to being on holiday as you can get at your desk.

4. Wee Beefy

He’s been a bit less prolific of late but his reports from the front line of the war on sobriety in pubs in the Sheffield area are always entertaining: ‘We finished our trip at the Duck and Drake, where we stood at the packed bar to hear a band finish playing, supping beers that I have forgotten to record, but which were, I assume very nice – as was the food, which may have been a pie, I genuinely don’t know, however!’

Hello! So very pleased by your mention. Have been much quieter this year, but in fact have drunk more beer and almost visited more pubs. And am now trying, not very successfully, to complete Dryvember. That is a word I made up, yer see….
Take care! Yan.

Thanks for the heads-up of the Ultimate London Pub Crawl Blog.
It’s really rather well written but I do wonder if I’ll be around to see its completion in 22 years time.
Or indeed whether their youthful high spirits remain as the looming shadow of middle age approaches.

Thanks again for the mention. What an honour! And thanks for the kind comments. Really chuffed you’re enjoying the blog.

Thanks again.

Greg and Andy.
