The Post Office Vaults, Birmingham [REVIEW]

By the end of 2012 the beer scene in Birmingham will have changed beyond recognition. Word on the street is that not one, not two but three new craft beer bars will be open for business by Christmas. Properly exciting for my hometown, cos we have a few (but not many) hip beer bars a la North Bar, Leeds, for example. I dream of a craft beer bar in Brum where I can listen to some Hot Chip in the background, and eat some fabulous food, without having to endure the smell of musty old carpets under my nose the whole time, where the bar staff are hyped about the drinks offering and can recommend all manner of wondrous beverages to you, where there’s something exciting happening every week for me and my mates to get to (Meet The Brewer, Beer & Food matching dinner, Live Comedy, Live Acoustic music, say). Basically where the all-consuming vibe is ‘Come in, chill out with a few beers and your mates, have a bite to eat and stay a while’

Any weekend beer plans??

Sunshine and beer go hand-in-hand extraordinarily well in my book.  I’ve been trying to take advantage of this amazing hot, sunny weather in between a little bout of illness and working my socks off! I’m not one for knocking them back until I keel over: in this weather, that’d be just plain foolhardy! But sipping a cool half an ale (or two) in the sunshine while relaxing with friends is my idea of heaven. So it got me thinking… what beer plans have you’ve got for the myriad of Bank Holidays we’ve got lined up these next few weekends??
