Good atmosphere with 7 or 8 casks and lots of international bottles. Staff were friendly. Small and cosy, a little cramped on the Friday I visited , good and decent city centre prices.

Lovely little snug pub. 7 real ales and 13 ciders on cask. Lots of bottles. Friendly staff, reasonable prices. Nice and quaint, hard to believe youíre in Birmingham city centre. Bring your own food and theyíll supply plates and cutlery. Lovely spot.

New bar in the centre of the city, near Victoria Square. It is a cellar bar, the New Street entrance is a little tricky to spot. Specialises in foreign bottled beers, particularly American, this is proving to be a good move as it seems to be popular. There are 8 cask hand pulls, time will tell how many of these will be rotating. No food is served but you are free to bring along your own. Seems to be a midway point between a Craft beer supplier and Real Ale house. It really is worth taking a look and close enough to the Welly, where there is a slight link, to be able to combine the two. I was really impressed hence the mark, but will review again later.
Updated review Dec í12. This has been running 1 year now and remains an excellent place for beers in the City Centre. The Real Ales remain interesting, well sourced and in good condition. As has been said, the bottled beer is somewhat expensive. It is popular and often full particularly on weekend evenings. A must visit.
Dec í13 - This remains an excellent pub to visit at any time. Cheaper for bottles than the Brewdog and comfortably friendly.

A quality, subturranean bar near New Street Station, which is part owned by the landlord at The Wellington. I rate this pub as being of equal stature to the Wellington, and it has an even better selection in terms of bottled beers and scrumpy- a real boon for a cider fan like me.
The only points that edge it for The Wellington as far as Iím concerned are that space is at a premium (a testament to its deserved popularity) and thereís no outside drinking space. I tend to go in the day when I can, as at night it tends to get rammed.
The booze could be cheaper, but then again itís by no means over-expensive, and the range of Belgian beers is incredible.

Underground. Simple cozy design, not a huge cask list, but solid and well thought out with lots of cider. Staff were helpful, nice bottle list. Beer was in fantastic condition. Out of all the beer places in Birmingham I felt this was most targeted at beer geeks and serious beer drinker. Solid solid place.

Tucked away in a low key building near the train station is this hidden gem. The tap selection was not what drew me here but the list of hundreds of Belgian, US, and other bottles. Most prices seemed reasonable and although there is nothing exceptionally rare it covers enough styles to make finding a beer easy. Visit here just before or after getting off the train for one of the better bars in the Birmingham city center.

The entrance to the Post Office Vaults on New Street is easy to miss Ė thereís just a doorway and a small sign beckoning you in and down the stairs into the pub. However, itís built into the side of the hill and thereís also a door at the back of the bar opening directly onto Pinfold Street, where thereís a more normal frontage painted in pillar box red and cream. Itís a smallish bar, quite plainly decorated, but welcoming and with a good range of beer and ciders as well as the bottles for which it is becoming known.

I visited here on Monday 18th March 2013, it was actually easier to find than I expected as I entered via the Penfold St entrance which is probably a lot clearer and more obvious than the New Street entrance. Both entrances lead down to a cellar style bar though entering via the Penfold entrance you realise that the pub being is much closer to street level at that end. The pub is a one room oblong shaped affair with bar at one end, nothing particularly interesting about it, but it was pleasant enough. There were about eight handpumps as I recall with a Beuwolf stout at 7.4% the most interesting of these, in fact it was very tasty from the small sampler I had. I had 300+ beers to choose from in the bottled beer list or bible as they refer to it, though I decided to go for an old favourite in Brí La Senne Zinnebir. I also had a Brooklyn There Will be Black and chatted quite a bit to the bar person, she was really informative about local pubs and clearly knowledgeable about her beers. A good bar with a good range (mostly bottles) I will definitely return here again. Btw this is just a 4-5 min walk from both Brewdog bar and also the Welly and in fact makes a nice little inbetweener.

Fine establishment for real ale and beyond. The selection is varied and thereís enough pumps to keep you occupied for several hours. Failing that thereís enough lager and bottles to supplement any whim, but itís probably not the best idea to bring non beer drinkers here as there is little choice from the aforementioned. The decor is simple but suits, including indented light fittings surrounding by hops on the vine, as is the bar. To add to the already beer themed bar it has a hundred or so bottles from around the world circling the upper part of the room and a choice of Good Beer Guide books to read, which it is in of course. No food.
