The Botanist, Birmingham

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. 

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.
