I was going to start with “Hello” but then realised that this is a little clichéd. So, after this rather awkward first ever blog post introduction I suppose the best thing to do would be to explain what this is all going to be about!
Basically, we all enjoy a nice pint of beer, right? Of course we do. Well, I had a dream a while back. The dream went something like this. Wouldn’t it be fun to have a pint in every pub in North Staffordshire? Not in the same night, obviously – there’s over 400, I doubt I’d even make it into double figures. No, just once or twice a week would do. Then, I thought to myself how would I keep track of this beer drinking experience? Thus the idea of a blog was born!
However, I wanted this to be a little bit different from the usual “this pub has a pool table and a good atmosphere” type reviews you see. Basically, I’m going to be going to a random pub every week (chosen via random number generator – there’s a spreadsheet!) and giving a humorous, witty & insightful review of the pub. Nah, not really – I’m just going to be ranting nonsense about the pub, and using a less generic scoring system (which will hopefully make at least someone smile). Using a potentially generic 5 pint scoring system.
- Beer Choice/Range
- Facilities (Beer Garden/Smoking Area – heaters etc, Bar Games)
- Location – Easy to get to, parking facilities.
- Pork Scratchings!
- Toilets (Smell, Cleanliness, Hand Dryers)
- Other – Can you Vape inside, do they do food?
Last but not least –
I love Fruli, so if a pub has this on draft it’s going to potentially score highly!
So, that’s about it by way of introduction – watch this space for the first of which will be a slightly different pub review.
