#AT11 is almost here

16 09 2013

The time has come, it’s almost near,
Alpine Trail Eleven.
On Thursday night in London Town
It’s Taddy Lager heaven.

20130916-152251.jpg
The Red Lion in Kingly Street,
That is where we’ll start.
Then slalom round Soho and Fitzrovia
With Alpine in our heart.

We’ll stick together and have some craic,
All blokes and not one bird.
It only comes round twice a year,
So why not spread the word?

See you Thursday, 6.15pm-6.55pm in The Red Lion.

The full route will appear on the website later this week…

The 10th Alpine Trail

14 03 2013

Thursday, 28 March 2013
A Slalom in Fitzrovia in search of The Man in the Box
Seven Pubs, Seven Pints of Taddy (or similar)

It seems like only yesterday when seven likely lads left Soho Square and made for the Bricklayers Arms to embark on the first Alpine Trail.

That evening in September 2008 has set a trend that still continues twice yearly.

But for how long?

Well that’s all down to you. If you still want it, the Alpine Trail will continue, so vote with your feet and join me on the tenth edition of London’s best evening pub crawl.

And we’ll be back walking over the path trodden by those founding fathers nearly five years ago as AT10 follows the same route as the first ever trail.

Hope to see you there, the route to follow is below…

As always,
Sam

AT9: The Route

13 09 2012

The Alpine Trail 9
The Slalom Around London in Search of the Man in the Box
Thursday 20 September 2012

Register your interest with me on twitter @alpinetrail

The AT9 Route has been chosen, and after a nice relaxing AT8, we’re apadting that route just slightly for a fairly short hop between all stops.

The Cittie of Yorke has been dropped, so AT9 begins at the Princess Louise by Holborn Station, then The Crown on New Oxford Street, before shimmying around the corner to The Angel on St Giles High St.

Then it’s back on to familiar Fitzrovian territory; The Bricklayers Arms, followed by The Fitzroy – a highly-rated substitute for the Cittie of Yorke – round to The Blue Posts and finally, our home – The Champion.

A map of the Trail is below, with confirmed route timings. Follow on Twitter @alpinetrail for the latest.

Until then…

6.00pm-6.40pm: The Princess Louise – Stop Number One
208-209 High Holborn, WC1V 7BW
6.35pm-7.15pm: The Crown – Stop Number Two
51 New Oxford St, WC1A 1BL
7.10pm-7.50pm: The Angel - Stop Number Three
61 St Giles High St, WC2H 8LE
7.45pm-8.25pm: The Bricklayers Arms - Stop Number Four
31 Gresse Street, Fitzrovia, London, W1T 1QY

AT8: Route confirmed for 13 April

29 03 2012

The Alpine Trail 8
The Slalom Around London in Search of the Man in the Box
Friday 13 April 2012

Register your interest with me on twitter @alpinetrail

The AT8 Route has been chosen, and there are four brand new establishments to an Alpine Trail, joining for the very first time.

AT8 begins in the Cittie of Yorke – No, not the walled city in the north of England and home of York Minster, but the public house in High Holborn, a hostelry site which dates back to 1430 (though the current building was erected in the 1920s). We begin there between 6-6.40pm.

From there we head west, along High Holborn paying a visit to Princess Louise, then The Crown on New Oxford Street, before shimmying around the corner to The Angel on St Giles High St.

Then it’s back on to familiar Fitzrovian territory; The Bricklayers Arms, The Blue Posts and finally, our home – The Champion.

Since the Alpine Memorial Trail in September, our Man in the Box has risen once again, so it appears he wasn’t dead after all, merely ill. That accounts for his strength on his return to the pump, a measly 2.8%, so for the lager drinkers it’s Taddy all the way. But of course there is also Old Brewery too!

A map of the Trail is below, with confirmed route timings. Follow on Twitter @alpinetrail for the latest.

Until then…

6.00pm-6.40pm: The Cittie of Yorke - Stop Number One
