Place of pure awesomeness quietly waiting for you in England’s second city. 7-8 real ales, 7-8 real ciders, a few keg. But the bottle list is worth coming for. A wealth if reasonably-priced Belgians, Germans, USA etc. Bring your boss. Bring your American friends. Bring your mum and dad. Bring your wife, your mistress, come alone or with friends, just come.

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 you’re in Birmingham city centre. Bring your own food and they’ll 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 ’12. 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 ’13 - 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 I’m concerned are that space is at a premium (a testament to its deserved popularity) and there’s 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 it’s by no means over-expensive, and the range of Belgian beers is incredible. Spiffing place.

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 – there’s just a doorway and a small sign beckoning you in and down the stairs into the pub. However, it’s built into the side of the hill and there’s also a door at the back of the bar opening directly onto Pinfold Street, where there’s a more normal frontage painted in pillar box red and cream. It’s 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. (Visited 6 July 2013).

Formerly The Royal Mail and closed for several years. Good selection of beers and an excellent bottle menu.
