Discover the best food and drink experiences

A brand new boozer is heading to the city centre next year to give Brummies a flavour of craft beer, real ale and premium cocktails.

The Head of Steam will move into the site next door to Las Iguanas on Temple Street. It will be surrounded by popular venues like The Botanist, San Carlo and real ale spot The Wellington - all close by.

The Head of Steam plans to serve a selection of rotating craft beers, real cider from the region, and premium cocktails.

Will it serve food?

Absolutely. And it sounds like serving good food will be a high priority for this new craft beer pub.

Adopting a traditional British approach, but introducing American and other global flavours along the way, The Head of Steam will explore using their own drinks in their dishes to provide drinkers and diners with the perfect food and drink pairings.

The brains behind it all...

Camerons Brewery, the brewing company that have bought the site, dates back to 1865 and mainly operates pubs in the North of England.

With twelve sites across the North including in Durham, Leeds, and Liverpool, Cameron's Brewery have chosen Birmingham as the spot for pub number thirteen.

Hopefully this won't prove to be too unlucky though, as a new craft beer pub will be a welcome addition to the city centre

When asked about their choice to open the next The Head of Steam pub in Birmingham, chief executive of Camerons Brewery Chris Soley said:

"As part of our expansion plans we have been looking at venues across the UK, and the Midlands was a key area we identified for our Head of Steam venue.

"Birmingham is such a vibrant UK city, and an area which has a growing craft beer scene.

"We feel we will offer a very unique customer experience."

The Head of Steam is set to open on Temple Street next May and we look forward to seeing what it's all about.
