York Stag Weekends

There is a rumour that wherever you are in York, you can always see a pub...  that probably depends on how drunk you are. Chances are, if you've seen inside a few pubs then your vision isn't going to be 20/20. Regardless, a stag weekend in York is a great idea with so many pubs about. Also, located in the heart of the city is York's very own brewery; it feeds the local pubs but more importantly has the ability to fuel your stag party for the entire weekend. The brewery also offers visitor tours which are one of the more popular activities and makes for a gentle start to the day if the night before was a particularly heavy one.
