Prahva (4.0%)

Our best selling draft and with good reason. It's a session lager but with a taste that exceeds any other we've tried in this bracket.

Staropramen (5.0%)

Pravha's bigger, stronger brother. We honestly believe it to be the finest premium lager going.

Hogan's Original Cider (4.5%)

Even if you don't usually drink cider this one's worth a try. 100% fresh-pressed and made just down the road in Alcester it only has to travel 20 miles to get to us and tastes as pure as it gets.

Blue Moon (5.4%)

A Belgian style white beer crafted with Valencia and Navel orange peelĀ for a smooth and subtly fruity taste. If you're looking for something with a bit more flavour and texture than your regular lager, this is the one for you.

Guinness (4.1%)

When was the last time you heard someone walk into a bar and ask "What stouts do you have?" Probably never because Guinness is in a league of its own.

Vedett IPA (5.5%)

The guys at Vedett tell us we're one of only two bars in Birmingham which sell this on draught. As strong as it is beautiful it should be handled with care because you will want more and you will think you can handle it.


Atlantic Pale Ale (4.2%)

Very clean, light and easy to drink.

Citra (4.2%)

Another light ale but with definite grapefruit overtones.

Complete Muppetry (4.3%)

A regular guest at The Ruin, Complete Muppetry is brewed about 1 mile away the the Two Towers brewery.

Other guest ales

We'll often have another guest ale in, either from one of the local breweries or anything that catches our eye!
