Pure Bar & Kitchen
Time Out says
Craft beer bar with over a hundred different brews on offer, plus suitably meaty bar snacks and a full, beer-referencing food menu
Despite offering over a hundred beers, Pure is as often the pick of Brum’s gin-swigging contingent as it is the protectorate of boys’ business lunches or post-work ales.
With local legends Purity Brewing partly behind the city centre’s industrial chic, the beer is unsurprisingly served right every time, and the drinks list includes a blackboard chock full of tasty surprises. Though we hear Purity’s Long Horn IPA is the biggest seller, we can’t help but find ourselves going back to the full-flavoured UBU. Team Purity, we salute you.
As well as a more substantial food menu – itself featuring an array of ales and lagers – a plethora of moreish, pastry-based bar bites keeps the rabble on the right side of lively all evening. We’ve been known to get very enthusiastic about the dense and juicy pork pie, which is served with the house piccalilli or mustard.
