The Craven Arms

If you want to drink craft brews the right way, then find yourself a proper pub. Luckily, that's why the Craven Arms exists, supplying its patrons with tonnes of rotating craft beers and ales, while they sit in interiors of wooden flooring, open fires and a comfy scarlet colour scheme.

It's not just a fun atmosphere, there's some pretty impressive brews here too. Showcasing a range of beers from around the world and the UK, there are 20 keg lines and a rotating selection of craft beers, with 10 cask ale lines. A real hot spot for Birmingham's thriving craft beer scene.

The Post Office Vaults can lay claim to the largest and most varied collection of beers of any pub in Birmingham city. From international treats to fresh, locally soured, cask bred finery, they even offer you your very own 'passport' to tick this extensive collection off with. 

The Wellington

Whilst this traditional and charming pub is host to 16 pumps of its own, it's also home to a great if not petite selection of craft beers in Birmingham. Head out to their secret rooftop bar and enjoy that brew you've been dying to get your mitts on.

The Bartons Arms

Craft-beer lovers, get yourself over to Aston immediately as The Bartons Arms serves up brews in all shapes and sizes. The Victorian boozer has a rotating selection of specials, as well as plenty of scrumptious Thai dishes to soak up those pints.
