I will do man: I’m likely to have a good few hours completely free on the Friday before the other lads are over, so will need someone to tell me where to go/drink with me.
Excellent, sounds perfect! (Next week right?)
Aye, get in on the morning of the 28th
Fancy/have time for hertha vs Liverpool?
Would have been super keen, but the stag do itinerary has us at BRLO at that point. No regrets.

(I like IPAs)
i’ve just booked myself a day off on my own in the toon after i see Ryan Adams at the Sage in September - just gonna spend the day drinking local beers and reading, can’t wait
fair BRLO is pretty sweet, was there a couple weeks ago for their mini festival, hope the weather is good!
I think I’ve posted something similar in this thread before, + gather you know Newcastle pretty well, but I posted this boozing guide the other day which may be of interest.
The new Arch2 (from Newcastle Brewing Ltd.) place under Byker Bridge in Ouseburn is especially good
cheers mate, yeah other than the usual spots i go to (Rehill’s/Wylam Tap Room/went to Free Trade Inn once which was boss) i don’t really know much as I used to mainly just stay indoors in Jesmond at my gf’s ha, so this is great!
As you’re in that part of town, there’s also a good bottle shop called Block And Bottle near The Sage (just by the high level bridge on the Gateshead side). The Central (run by Head Of Steam) is also decent.
And this new place if you’re coming in on the train!
Ha shit I forgot I’ve had the dry hopped sour at muted horn when I was meeting with brewdog in march! Oh well, still awesome.
Alright, speaking of Yorkshire anyone ever been to Saltire? Off next week.
Just having a brewdog electric India, it’s really bad.
really great place. they do a £2-a-pint beer club the last friday of every month if you’re around then.
Little beer shop/bar is great, and usually has Gamma Ray on tap at a scandalously low price.
Especially good on a summer’s day. Salts Mill and the walk down the canal to the brewery is one of my favourite things to do. lots of nice places around that greater area in Shipley and Bradford too.
cheers, yeah its the friday we’re going. tickets have gone apparently but my mate reckons we’ll be ok? fractured a metatarsal so can’t really walk far atm but looking forward to it.
would double checking that, cant remember how it works. might be worth trying to get down early either way
I’ve always had tickets but I’ve generally ended up with a couple of spares as tickets are cheap, people will buy and not go.
The brewery is nearer Shipley than Saltaire, though there are nice places to drink in Saltaire too, Cap n Collar and The Boathouse. So if you can’t get in could always go along to Saltaire itself.
The lemon meringue is inn at the event you linked me to. Mon over?
Ha ha, if only
