Bacchus Bar

10 user reviews 5

Bacchus is something of a hidden gem, but something they're loud and proud about is their beer selection. While making yourself comfortable in the old style interior – complete with rich woodwork, vintage furniture and wrought iron décor – make sure you tuck into their list of delicious cask ales, local beers and more.

Wings Wednesday and 1 other offer

Their tenth venture in the UK, Brewdog landed in Birmingham with a craft beer bang. While it says it all in the name, they do more than just brew. From the initial outset, they are the innovative thinkers behind the country's tastiest and most popular craft beers, with everything from their Punk IPA to Hardcore IPA catering to hop enthusiasts city wide.

The Victoria

Happy Hour

Stocking a small but ample amount of craft beers including the popular Versus Goliath and Bristletoe beverages, The Victoria is a quirky pub to dabble in even more quirky beers. Persistently cool and creative, it's no wonder they've adopted the craft beer scene and turned it into a must have addition to the bar. 

The mere fact this place was opened by a craft beer company sets a good marker for their craft beer offering. An industrial haunt toting bottles from the likes of Dunkertons, Purity craft itself, Fourpure, Roosters and more, Pure Bar and Kitchen is one of the top destinations for craft beer in the city. 

The Post Office Vaults

With a selection of over 300 specialty beers and brews to choose from, 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. 

A swankier venue for a high-quality beer would be The Botanist, don't let the flowery shabby chic aesthetic distract you from their interesting beer selection. With two house beers brewed by Freedom and Cloudwater, there is also a significant amount of high-quality US and European crafts on offer.
