I’m putting the finishing touches to part two of my food festival feature, but in the meantime I wanted to share with you news of a new beer festival coming to Brum. Continue reading “Beer Central is on its way”
Earlier this year I visited Bruges and really got into fruit –flavoured beers, so I was pleased to read that Warwickshire’s Purity Brewing Company has launched a new Belgian style limited edition brew. Maravilla Sour is a ruby coloured raspberry sour, available at the brewery shop and online.
In the newly released Hardens Restaurant Guide, Birmingham has the UK’s fifth largest number of high scoring restaurants. As well as the expected Michelin-starred eateries Harborne Kitchen and Original Patty Men are also highly rated.
Sad to hear that one of my favourite local restaurants has closed. Restaurant 23 in Leamington shut after a gas leak in October, I just assumed that this was a temporary measure, but their Facebook and Twitter pages haven’t been updated since then. If anyone knows what has happened to Curtis Stewart and the team do let me know.
Birmingham has secured fifth place in the latest edition of Harden’s Best UK Restaurants 2017.
This annual guide is based on one of the country’s most detailed surveys of regular restaurant-goers. In Harden’s 26th poll of diners 7,500 participants contributed 50,000 reviews for food, service and ambience.
Congratulations to top scorers Adam’s, Carters, Lasan and Original Patty Men with 5/5 and Al Frash, Gourmet Burger Company and Jyoti with 4/5.
