Great night had by all… well you could say both of us. scores as follows:
OPEN HOUSE, 78,100
ROSE TERRACE, 60/100
THE HYDRANT, 49/100
Ambience 13/25 [+1 Ambiance point as we were pestered by some crazy to buy some cheap tobacco. It made the night]
CIRCUS CIRCUS, 54/100
Now, where’s the paracetamol?!
Just before we head out to fill our bellies of beer and our minds of wisdom, we should publish the categories that each of the drinking holes will be critiqued on (just in case they want to brush up before we arrive):
Category 1: Location – The location will obviously be dependent on where we have travelled from, however it’s much more than this – we think about ease of getting to the venue – bus/rail/walking – it’s all considered
Category 2: Menu – We haven’t got time, or the appetite to eat at each venue. So we are going to have to rate something other than the food…
Category 3: Beers – Good selection? Good quality? Good price? It all adds up
Category 4: Ambiance – A pub is a shortened word for public house. You should feel at home in a house, therefore you should feel at home in a pub. The more ‘at home’ we feel, the better the ambiance.
Each category is scored out of 25. Therefore the total score will be out of 100. We’ll also be throwing in some bonus points along the way if there is anything extraordinary to mention.
Okay it’s time to hit the first venue…
It’s finally here – the first EVER Brighton, Beer and Bicycle Club meeting. It looks set to rain so we are staying local this evening, around London Road Railway Station and then heading to Preston Circus. The exact route is:
1. Open House
3. Rose Terrace
4. The Hydrant
5. Circus Circus
Should be a good’n.
The long awaited first official BBBC meet is tomorrow. Though we have not had the flurry of attendees we had anticipated, it looks set to be a great evening. We are both looking forward to some critical drinking.
It’s early days yet, but the BBBC blog is now set to be updated with all forthcoming reviews as of now. All future reviews will be uploaded for your perusing pleasure as and when they are written.
The first official BBBC meet will take place on Friday 29th October, so until then, if there are any suggestions for drinking holes that are in need of a beer and bicycle club opinion, then be sure to put them to us.
In the meantime, visit back over the next week or two for our thoughts on the venues we have visited over the last couple of months…
Hello and welcome to the start of something special. If you are into beers, bikes or the general goings on around Brighton, then you’ve come to the right place. Stay tuned, we have a lot to tell you about…
