Birmingham Cafe crawl & Beer Bash!

Recommended Posts

Spence and I have been toying with the idea of such an afternoon / evening for a while now and would like to extend the invite to the rest of the forum. Im liking the idea of it being a Friday for some reason, coffee shops seem to be more chilled.

 

The plan would be visiting 3-4 cafes (6/8, Yorks, Saints) in Birmingham city centre to check out the menus, machinery , maybe even quiz barista folk on all things coffee and then follow up in the evening with a couple of pubs , focusing on good craft beer (Brewdog, Craven Arms etc). Could even throw a curry in afterwards?!

 

Point of this thread is to gauge an idea of numbers and potential dates (Im thinking Feb or March) . I might be able to provide B&B for one person in return for a few pints :)

 

So forum folk - over to you , hit us with your interest please

7th-8th Feb seems the most sensible, especially as the UKBC starts on the 9th so you can all come along and watch that. ;)

If I stop drinking the coffee, I stop doing the standing and the walking and the words-into-sentences putting.

Ok, this might get out of hand quickly!

 

I've created a doodle poll so if you could fill in your forum username and the dates you can make if you are interested then I think that it will keep things tidy.

Any problems then drop me a line.

I would like to come but am awaiting a date for surgery to get rid of a pilonidal sinus so I need to wait to find out about that as I certainly won't be up for sitting down in a car for very long in 1 go shortly after it let alone driving myself.


Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment. Because you have to deal with everyone that doesn't have it !!!

Give us a shout mate! I'd be happy to meet for a brew after work on a week night if you're about.

I've never seen Doodle before, that's really useful!

 

I've put my availability in. Note I haven't ticked the 8th Feb as I'm on the night shift over the 7th/8th, so although it isn't completely impossible for me to do if it needs to be the date, I can't guarantee to being that awake!

Oh right go on a cafe/pub crawl with food thrown in now that I'm no longer a Brum resident . . .

Would be good to get a date in sooner rather than later so we can get trains etc booked. I'm excited (concerningly perhaps more about the beer than the coffee)
