Beer Clocking Up The Bike Miles & Drinking Beer in Birmingham!

Clocking Up The Bike Miles & Drinking Beer in Birmingham!

So we woke up to a lovely day and we had pre booked a table at the Brew House & Kitchen for dinner. There was only one thing to do get out on the bike. We carefully chose a route and set off from Stirchley via canal towpaths, parks and beauty that is the urban landscape of Birmingham.

The first stretch was the Worcester & Birmingham Canal towards the town centre, a flat and beautiful ride. The perfect start to the day cycling past the still waters and reflections, it just takes you away from the city and makes you forget you are actually in Birmingham. A visual paradise.

Only 5 miles in and we made our first pit stop, having worked up an appetite for brunch. The perfectly located Canalside Cafe served up a delicious Full English, washed down with a real beer. Perfect!

Sadlers Red IPA

A deep malty ruby red beer with hints of orange but still stays true to its hoppy style with citrus notes. A refreshing pitstop indeed.

Refuelled we continued onto the Birmingham & Fazeley Canal seeing parts of Birmingham waterways which were completely new to us. This is a nice gentle ride, great for a Sunday morning. The route passes through the canal paths of real industrial B’ham which lead to Aston reservoir sat beneath the Spaghetti Junction, a real landmark of the city. This is an amazing part of the route, urban landscape great to experience from the saddle of a bike.

With a cold beer in mind keeping us going we hit half way point with the beautiful views across Witton Lakes. Then a few roads on route before arriving at Sutton Park. A lovely place to take a short break and soak up the sun, followed by a bit of fun hitting a few dirt tracks, exactly what I live for. After a few hills and working up a sweat we headed for our destination, Brew House & Kitchen.

Well deserved cold beers, slowly cooked ribs and a pulled pork burger couldn’t have gone down any better. This is great place to check out to get your fix of craft beers paired with amazing food. The bar and restaurant are set in the micro brewery itself so you can see where the magic happens, along with the beer related interiors which adds to the experience. They have their own beers, seasonals along with a wide range of craft heaven on offer. All enough to give your taste buds a party, if its all too much to take in the staff are very good at offering up suggestions.

A few of the beers that had us wobbling home on our bikes :

Wild Beer Co – Bibble

First to quench our thirst, this amber brew with a lovely long-lasting head. A perfect fruity aroma with hints of orange and nicely balanced with hoppy bitterness. Just what the doctor ordered.

Big Hug Brewing – Big Hibernation (White IPA)

To keep us content in-between main and desert this unfiltered brew, light golden in colour with a hoppy zesty aroma and hints of grapefruit. Well balanced @ 5.2% a pretty nifty abv.

Haccht – Mystic Belgian Fruit

To end we chose to contrast the pallet with this fruit beer which completely complemented the chocolate sundae, a sweet fruity aroma with a peach bouquet. A nice sweet wittier to finish.

Heading home at golden hour completely satisfied and with a smile on our faces we looped back through Plants Brooke Nature Reserve and Pipe Hayes Park for a beautiful and direct route home.

Hey, I’m Tim! I fell seriously in love with beer while travelling with my wife from the UK to the U.S back in 2013. Visiting some epic craft beer bars and beer festivals along the way, we discovered some amazing brews. This inspired me to create BeerYeti to share my passion while educating everyone on everything beer! The site was originally set up as ‘a bit of a laugh’, but this soon spiralled into something a little more serious!
