With the sunny weather well and truly here, there’s no better time to enjoy a refreshing drink with friends.

The bright and bustling Avenues are the perfect destination, whether you’re looking for a craft beer, a bottle of Prosecco, a Pimm’s cocktail or an ice cold smoothie.

We visited 80 Days Bier Haus down Princes Avenue, an independent bar selling countless world beers. Though possibly the smallest bar around, the experience is not to be missed.

As you walk into the single downstairs room, you may feel as if you’ve entered someone’s quirky lounge. That’s because every inch of 80 Days is filled with vintage and reclaimed furniture, complemented by exposed brick walls, bric-a-brac and some striking local art.

The owners are passionate about beer, presenting a huge range from all around the globe. From the popular Kasteel by Castle Brewery Van Honsebrouck in Belgium, to a range from California’s Stone Brewing Co, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

British favourites such as Beavertown and Vocation Brewery can be found in the fridges, plus a local creation by Atom Beers is usually on tap. Add to this cans, bottles and draughts by Evil Twin, Brooklyn Brewery, Duvel and Vedett, and it soon becomes a celebration of good suds.

There are also many different styles of beer, such as Indian black lager, Japanese Belgian-style wheat beer, fruit varieties and an abundance of weird and wonderful concoctions.

Part of the fun of visiting 80 Days is picking something you may never have even heard of before. Over the last couple of years the bar has stocked Albino Squid Assassin, 7:45 Escalation and Li’l Heaven, making the very process of ordering fun in itself.

Whilst accommodating a relatively small capacity downstairs, 80 Days also has an upstairs room and a deceptively spacious outdoor seating area. The latter is parallel with Princes Avenue, giving it plenty of atmosphere and being a likely place to bump into passing friends.

As for the team behind the bar, they’re absolutely brilliant at recommending new and exciting ales and spirits. Knowing that the people serving are passionate about what they do really does add to the experience, and you can rest assured that they’ll always offer helpful insight and suggestions.

Now that the sun is out, you may want to enjoy a slow-sipping beer that guarantees to refresh. During our visit we spotted Tiny Rebel’s CLWB Tropicana (a “tropical thunder mouth explosion”), Beavertown’s Bloody ‘Ell (blood orange IPA) and North Brewing’s PÑTA (Piñata tropical ale) all in can form. Needless to say, these are ideal during the summer months.

This is a bar worthy of regular visits. With ever-changing beers and so many to choose from, as well as an excellent spirits selection, it’s a warm and welcoming spot filled with chatter and laughter.

You can find 80 Days Bier Haus at 24 Princes Avenue. Open Monday to Friday 4pm-11.30pm, Saturday 2pm-11.30pm and Sunday 2pm-11pm.
