Default Walking the Mumbles Mile.

SWMBO and I are headed to the UK next week for a desperately needed vacation. We're going to spend a few days in London, and then we're headed to Wales for a couple to check out some sights and visit a old/new friends.

While researching things to do in Wales, we discovered the amusingly named "Mumbles Mile";

The Mumbles Mile, Swansea pub crawl

9 Pubs along a mile stretch, with casks in those lovely twenty ounce Imperial Pints!


We booked a hotel on the other end for obvious reasons..

Anyone else been on some good crawls in the UK to suggest?

9 bars? Thats not a crawl, that's a pregame for a crawl! We had 21 Bars on one half mile street in college! That's a crawL! Granted your beer will be much better!

Yeah... No blue or corona's on this crawl!

We're hoping to hit up thr Brains brewery to check out their cask operation, and there's a few CAMRA pubs along the way.

Good thing I've been in training for this all winter...

I remember seeing the mumbles mile on Three Sheets. I think I remember the host talking to a guy that did 10 pubs (200oz.) in somewhere under 2 hours. Apparently there is also some crazy women over there that grabs your balls so watch out.

Math Class?

16oz * 10 pubs = 160 oz
12 oz * 21 bars = MORE

I'm not downplaying his crawl, I was just mentioning our old college challenge.

Good luck getting a 16 ounce beer in England.

A good one in London is the Circle Line pub crawl.

There are 27 stations, so a half pint in each is a reasonable challenge.

Check you math. A pint in Brittan is 20oz. Still 12*21 is greater but it starts getting pretty close.

However I couldn't imagine drinking either. I enjoy my beer way too much to get that hammered. Especially on American macro brews.
