Wonderful set-up with pragmatic use of space. Rustic feel with plenty of seating in from of table-seating, stools and booths, with more sedentary long-stay downstairs in form of a lounge with recliners,etc.
Staff were very knowledgeable but couldn’t guide me on the pour of my Rayon Vert - it badly overflowed leaving me with 3/4 head. and 1/4 on the bar.
Prices are quite steep and take-out beer is not worth the pretty penny they charge.

My first (and most likely last) visit to a BrewDog establishment.
Friendly staff gave us three tasters and a guide to the beers on tap, all advertised on huge boards on the wall behind the bar: the prices put me off, but a pint of Fake Lager at £4.05 was ordered for me and I enjoyed it. Staff fine throughout the visit.
Basic decor with school gymnasium floorboards in evidence all over the place. Not really my sort of place, too ’in your face’ and modern for my old traditional tastes. Don’t think they are aiming for the old CAMRA types though. Toilets and small lounge bit below.
Seemed devoid of young beer geeks on the Saturday afternoon I was in, but they must have used the joint because there were no uber-strong beers left except TN Penguin.
Food was good value though and my Bratwurst was very good at £5.00, the £7:00 Burgers also seemed OK, so credit where credits due.

BrewDog Birmingham is much like the other BrewDog bars I’ve been too - a black exterior with the blue shield over the door and basic industrial chic inside. There are bare brick walls and carefully orchestrated "graffiti" - a shipwrecked sailor, a skull, some other symbols difficult to make out at a glance and a cartoon of the brewing process. Downstairs, next to the toilets, there’s a small den with sofas and armchairs. There were 8 BrewDog taps and 8 guests when we visited. It was a Sunday lunchtime and relatively quiet customerwise although the music was too loud as usual. However, the service was very friendly and as an added bonus for us we bumped into Casey and Tracey who’d called in for a burger on their way to the station.

OK, I’m giving in a bit to the craft keg revolution...and it’s in full flow at BrewDog Birmingham. More club than pub atmosphere, it attracts a wide range of clientele. And the beer, my oh my. I gree with Sambayley101 (below) about the bouncers, doesn’t seem like the sort of place that would need it but hey ho.

I won’t comment on the trendiness or the expense of the place, as both issues seem to have been covered in other reviews.
Suffice to say that a great range of "craft beer" is on offer, complimented by some strong guest beers and ciders. It is too pricey for me to become a regular, but I like the beer and my girfriend loves the stylish atmosphere.
Criticisms are that both times I’ve visited I’ve found the staff to be pretty disinterested; they might have been having a bad day, however, so I’m not too hung up on that.
Another negative was that the last time we visited there were Bouncers on the door- normally a marker that a pub should be avoided at all costs. Happily, the atmosphere inside was just as friendly and laid back as on our first day-time visit, which made the Security seem a bit silly, although if they do get fights in there then obviously they’re value for money. I guess I was just taken aback by security at a pub that does quality beer: something I’d never seen before and was a touch odd.
All in all, a great addition to the Birmingham pub scene that I’ll keep going back to, but an establishment in which one or two pints will have to suffice before moving on somewhere cheaper!

A recent addition to the Brewdog pub holdings and probably the most comfortable we have visited. The post industrial look isn’t quite so obvious in here as in others, but the additions they have added to what was an old shop looks a bit naff. The staff, as in most Brewdogs are young, keen and knowledgeable, something other pub chains should take note of. The downsides are the almost frozen state of the beer and the price. The choice is extensive and with a great mix. Yes I would revisit, but no, it won’t become a regular.

This is a pretty typical Brewdog bar in the heart of Birmingham not too far from the new entrance to the train station. As such you get a selection of various Brewdog taps and nice guest taps that you probably will not see too frequently. A strong American bottle list complements the drafts.
My biggest problem are the prices. Maybe it is the name but you wind up paying a bit more than if you were to get the same thing somewhere else. This is a nice place to stop in before going to the pubs but I would not linger too long unless you are after more Brewdog ticks.

Recent addition to the Brewdog chain, full range of BrewDog beers + a good range of guests. Pricey by Birmingham standards most pints are £4+. Can get very busy in the evenings.

Wonderful place in a town without any other real craft beer bar options. Went here twice in a 5-day stay and the beers seem to rotate fairly quickly. Also a nice selection of guest taps. Prices are reasonable for what you’re getting. Decent bottle selection too, though the prices are very steep -- though I do understand it costs a lot to import from the US. Service was really great -- very friendly, helpful and informative. Atmosphere was to my taste -- with a somewhat elitist message (what others may call pretentious -- and what I call "telling the truth"). An absolute must-stop when in Birmingham.
