Beer: Beavertown Neck Oil IPA 4.3%
Part of a works do in London. Wasn’t going to write this up but, as I’ve been a completist thus far…
Arrived at the Flight Club, darts themed pub in Victoria, for the second half of a highly successful and extremely well received team day out for our department.
Most of the those employed therein are younger than I, most are fun loving/extrovert types; and good for them.
Now – LET’S PLAY DARTS!!!!!!!!! LOL ;-O
I felt very much a fish out of water. I do not fit the demographic – certainly of this place (and, increasingly, of the department).
This struck me as a city centre venue for folk who “work hard and play hard”. You gotta love those guys. The atmosphere is young, vibrant, relentlessly upbeat ‘n’ fun. The Beavertown beer is much the same – too citrussy for me, but there’s clearly a market for this kind of thing.
Suffice to say that Flight Club is not the kind of place I’d normally touch with a bargepole but, as far as I could make out, my colleagues were having a fantastic time. I was extremely happy to let them do that, decided against further oche bothering, and left rather early.
