London, Oct 30 : A group of pub-loving pals have set a new record by carrying out the longest ever pub crawl, including every county in England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland.
Leader Peter Hill, 52, John Drew, 45, Karl Bradley, 45, and Peter's dad, Joe, 77, began their record making visit after they got bored with their local The Old Crown in West Bromwich, West Midlands.
"It turned from a bit of fun to a serious hobby," The Sun quoted Peter, as saying.
The Black Country Ale Testers began their quest in 1984 and have just visited their 14,000th bar, The Stags Leap in Rugeley, Staffordshire.
They have drunk 84,000 pints of real ale and plan to visit all 60,000 UK pubs - but it could take until 2084.
