The two runaway winners will be no surprise to anyone who knows the area. The Bree Louise is famed for its vast range of real ales, while relative newcomer the Euston Tap serves up top-rate craft ales in an unusual venue. Perhaps oddly, the Tap’s sister bar, the Cider Tap, only came in joint seventh, despite offering a similar night out. We put it down to the relative unpopularity of cider.

As ever, we left the definition of Euston up to you. The winner of this month’s prize for creative stretching of geography goes to the commenter who nominated the (admittedly excellent) Charles I, over on the east side of King’s Cross. (Edited: previously we got our Exmouth Arms’s mixed up.)

Please join us for a crawl around the top four pubs on Monday 25 June, cunningly slotted in between the important Euro 2012 games. The itinerary will be:

6.30pm Meet at the Euston Tap. It’s small, so don’t expect a seat.
7.30pm The Bree Louise
8.30pm The Doric Arch
9.30pm The Somers Town Coffee House

If you’d like to join us, please email matt@londonist.com, so we can keep an eye on numbers. Everyone who comes along gets a Londonist booze badge, and the first to find us gets a tshirt.

    What some good local government chat over a pint?  Try the Skinners Arms next to the Town Hall, Judd Street.

      Not just local government. I once, at the Skinners, interrupted a very important conversation between two very senior figures (who will remain nameless this side of my memoirs) to ask them their views on a particularly deviant sexual practice. I was incredibly drunk at the time.

    “The winner of this month’s prize for creative stretching of geography goes to the commenter who nominated the (admittedly excellent) Charles I, over on the east side of King’s Cross.”

    I’ll accept that prize. I’d much rather stretch my legs for 5-10 minutes over to the other side of King’s Cross than spend that time in the terminally depressing Doric Arch. Oh well.

      The Charles is my local. It is indeed awesome.
