A Momentous Day – The Low Down

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…


Early days…

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…
