You probably would have seen my original post about my birthday twissup in Norwich on Saturday 31st May, as well as my frequent tweets telling everyone to buy train tickets.
If you don’t know already, my birthday event in
London last year
(#Dawgocalypse) was a raging success with around 30 different people joining us
throughout the day and it was seriously fucking awesome. I really appreciate
everyone coming out.
This year, I’ve decided to try and haul everyone’s arses to my home city of
Norwich as it will be
approaching the end of our annual City of Ale
Anyway, there are just six weeks to go so essentially this is a reminder for y’all to book your tickets, and I’ll give you a brief overview of the pubs we plan on visiting. I believe we’ll be starting between 12pm & 1pm but if you’re any later to
you’ll find a map at the end of this post…
ALL TIMES BELOW ARE APPROXIMATE. WE MAY SPEND MORE OR LESS TIME IN SOME PUBS, DEPENDING ON HOW BUSY THEY ARE AND THE SELECTION OF BEER AVAILABLE. STAYING OR MOVING WILL BE A GROUP DECISION. I AM NOT YOUR LEADER BUT YOU MUST TREAT ME AS SUCH. I EXPECT TO BE CARRIED BETWEEN PUBS, FANNED AND FED GRAPES AND BACON.
12pm – Compleat Angler – A Taylor Walker pub with a good selection of mostly local cask ales and a craft keg line that has seen the likes of Brewdog Punk IPA & Harviestoun Schiehallion.
1:15pm – Norwich Taphouse – No cask at this place so you’ll have to put up with the 20 keg lines available, 5 of which are usual from the local Redwell Brewery with the rest dedicated to further afield.
1:45pm – The Rumsey Wells – An Adnams pub that unsurprisingly has mostly Adnams on cask, a couple from Adnams on keg and the simply delicious Lagunitas IPA from California.
2:15pm – The Plough – The best beer garden in
Norwich is perfectly
accompanied by beers from the best brewery in , Grain Brewery. You can find 5 or 6
cask ales that are mostly from Grain, as well as some burgers in the shack
3pm – The White Lion – A Milton Brewery pub with 8 cask pumps, at least 4 of which are usually Milton, plus some guests. There’s only one keg line here and that’s dedicated to Moravka lager. You can also usually find a ridiculous amount of cider if that’s your thing!
4pm – The Plasterers Arms – You may have seen me mention The Plasterers before, because it is the home ground of
Bottle Share. Here you can find up to 15 cask ales/ciders from all across the
country, as well as 8 keg lines, with Voodoo Daddy Pizzas in the kitchen. Norwich
5pm – King’s Head – For our final (official) stop of the day, we’ll be visiting a unique pub where there is no such thing as keg beer. Yup. King’s Head has about 10 cask lines, of which 90% are from the local area.
So, guys, that’s the official pub list. Yeah, I know it says it finishes at 5pm but that’s a total lie because y’all know that we’ll be drinking until the last of us gets a train home, gets arrested or is taken to hospital. I’m hoping the latter two don’t happen, but I know what you reprobates are like!
If you need anymore information from me before THE EVENT, obviously you can catch me on Twitter or you can email me: nate(at)boozebeatsbites.com.
It’s guaranteed to be a great day out, with great company and I’m really looking forward to showing you all my awesome city!

P.S. If anyone can come up with an appropriate and easier hashtag for the day than #Dawgocalypse, there will be a prize.
