Round The World

How it Started

Some time in the early 80’s, sitting at the bar in the William Cobbett on the Saturday before Christmas. We needed a change from the normal skin full of English beer yes a normal Friday night.

In front of us beckoned the glass fronted cold shelf with a selection of bottled beers from all over the world, and so it started. At 5% a time we soon moved onto the next pub and by the end of the lunch time session had covered a few more pubs in Farnham.

The aim from then on was to spend the Saturday just before Christmas drinking foreign bottled or draught beer. A town would be selected and while everybody else was shopping we would be on a mission.

Below is the best estimate of places we have visited and thanks to PV the later trips have a list of pubs and what was sampled.
