As I got out of the shower yesterday morning I noticed I had a notification on my phone saying that my mate Steve (formerly of the Beer O’Clock Show & current co-host of Hopinions Podcast) was live on twitter. I tuned in. Steve was telling viewers of his plans for the day, he was going to go around all the pubs of his home town and see what was going on. Regardless of the rep or if he knew there was no beer worth hunting down. I thought this was a great idea, I am lucky enough to have a fair few decent pubs where I live but I usually only stick to the same two, seeing Steve do this I think after the new year we should have an adventure in Chelmsford too. In fact, I really think Steve could be on to something here and I would love to see other bloggers joining in over the new year, not only is it a bit of fun but also it is good for local pubs.
So my Beer Blogging Advent today is Steve’s journey (because I think more people should see this great idea!), with a few added comments from myself. Enjoy.
Honestly didn’t know there was a Spoons in Witham! Really interesting looking building from the outside, sometimes Spoons can really reinvent interesting places. Surprised Steve didn’t go full Resin mode here though!
What a lovely photo of a lovely looking pub! Shame there is only two cask lines though!
All kinds of bad by the looks of things here! Really does my head in that pubs rarely do football and good beer together well.
Disclaimer – I asked Steve if it was ok to steal all this from him to use for my blog post today, because he a propa chap he was cool with it!
