Title: Derby circular crawl
Creator: Mark Davey

A great real ale beer crawl in a circular pattern, starting and finishing at either the railway station or the bus station, depending on how you wish to get into town. Straight off the train into the Station for a pint of Bass, then a good walk to the babbington to be spoilt for beer choice. Another good walk to the Flowerpot where the drinking can really get going. Round the corner to the Dolphin and then accross the road to the Silk Mill. The Brewery Tap offers good food to soak up some beer, then on to the Exeter and back towards the station via the Alexander and the Brunswick. 9 pubs in all, but lots of opportunity to play jokers and sample multiple brews. Enjoy.
