Beer Central, Tea Works, Digbeth, Birmingham
The fifth and final instalment of the ‘We Are Beer’ UK Tour took place at the Digbeth Tea Works site for the second year running. We were delighted to see that the site had been somewhat reconfigured for this year, so that the Brewery Bars were distributed across both halves of the venue, which prompted the crowd to spread out more evenly than they did last year.
There were beers pouring from 37 Breweries this year, and, as has been the case for all the ‘We Are Beer’ Events this year, it was hard to look beyond Norwegian Pastry Stout Kings Amundsen for the stars of the show – who again were accompanying generous pours of their stouts with free luxury cream doughnuts!
Another honourable mention must go to Turning Point, who were pouring their incredible Emperor’s collab Imperial Stout. Definitely not the sort of beer that you expect to find at an all inclusive event!
As always we had a fantastic time chatting with old friends and new, while we worked our way through the beer lists.
Next up for us is IndyMan in two weeks time, where we have wisely invested in season tickets! Please come and say hello if you spot us wandering around.
