Burning Soul Brewing Co

Based near the Jewellery Quarter, Burning Soul is one of

the brightest lights in the Birmingham craft brewing scene.

With the history of a group of bored friends searching for

something to drink with some real taste, the brewery was

founded in 2013 and concentrates on creating beer that

brings people together. The brewery also has an in-house

taproom that is open on Friday and Saturdays, where you

could get the chance to sample its more experimental

beers that don’t make it to full production.

Two Towers Brewery

This community-owned brewer is situated in Birmingham’s

famous Gunmakers’ quarter and brews a wide range of

beers and ales that it supplies to bars and clubs around the

city. Opened in 2010, Two Towers is named after a book

by one of Birmingham’s most famous sons, JRR Tolkien and

brews beers that are equally as epic as his stories. There’s

a tap room at the brewery and the Gunmakers’ Arms pub

next door which pours many of its beers.

DigBrew Co

If you walk around the graffitied old factory units of

Digbeth you may spot stickers for the enigmatic DigBrew

Co and may be wondering what it’s all about. Well the

best way to find out is the head to River Street and visit

the brewery’s on-site taproom that is open on Fridays and

Saturdays. DigBrew makes some impressive beers that are

bold in style and high on quality. You may also be able to

sample their beers at many of the bars in this feature.
