Birmingham Canal Pub Walk

Saturday 27 October 2018

Central Birmingham Pub Crawl by Canal. Saturday 27th October 2018. Meet outside Library of Birmingham at 12noon, note change of time. Please check trains as engineering works are being undertaken on the Solihull line. We shall also be using one bus service

From the Library we shall catch a bus up to Five Ways where we shall visit the Bulls Head in Bishopsgate Street, a Davenports pub. Some of you may want to go directly there from the city centre, let me know if that is the case. From there we shall get on the canal to visit the Craven Arms a Black Country Ales pub near the Cube. On the canal again for Canalside with 3 beers on in Gas Street Basin. A short walk brings us to the Brasshouse, Marstons range of beer but does food. On the canal to pop into the Malthouse, a Greene King pub with guest beers. Along the towpath we pop into the Shakespeare, Summer Row, a Nicholson pub with 6 beers available. On the towpath to St Paul's Square where we shall visit the Rock and Roll Brewhouse, after which the canal will take us to the Indian Brewery tap. A short walk will bring us to the Gunmakers, Two Towers Brewery tap followed by a walk round the corner to the Bull in Price Strreet. Adnams and Marstons here but can have an interesting guest. Moving on along the canal to the Sacks of Potatoes at Costa Green, a Stonegate pub with 6 beers. We shall then finish our walk to the Woodman and Eagle and Tun both free houses before heading for Moor Strre Station and home, that is unless anyone wants to try Birminghams 2 new pubs, the Head of Steam and the Pint Shop. Total milage for this walk is considerable and I shall be surprised if we do all the pubs. A good finishing point will be the Bull in Price Street which will make the total milage just under 4 miles. If we finish, there will be a part 2 in the New Year. Plans may change on the day. If you are going to come along let me know at ku.oc.oohay@2591nosyd_evets. Also let me know where you will meet me. On the day my mobile phone will be on. My number is 07960773411. I have done a recci today so all info is up to date.
