With so many breweries opening up nationally, beer makers continue to push boundaries to separate themselves. Taste and Liquor have teamed up with two outstanding breweries for fans that love the amber nectar of the sun.

Head towards the Liquor Beer Bar for a cold pint of Kozel, Pilsner Urqell and Peroni but it does stop there, the organiser have challenged No21 Digbeth’s Mixologist to present the best Beer Cocktails this side of Digbeth! The main upstairs bar will also be serving a vast collection of sprits, wines, cocktails and ale.
