Reading is a brilliant city for a stag do. Everything's central, and there are some quirky, independent-style venues to complement the more obvious chain bars. Like this cracking place, which is just a few streets away from the river. Get the lads out of bed on Saturday for a beer tasting session with a difference.
We're talking full flexibility and total control. Not to mention live sports and delicious food! This place prides itself on offering a laid-back environment, great eats, and awesome beer. In other words, it's exactly the kind of venue the lads will want to spend all afternoon in.

Each lad gets a fistful of beer tokens (6, to be precise), which he can spend on any guest ale, craft beer, or cider. One token is equal to one schooner (that's two-thirds of a pint).
