Fleshing this out with a little more certainty now that we have avoided rail strikes for this weekend
I’ll be at New St just after 1100 to grab tickets to Worcester … aiming for the 11.50 fast and direct train
Time for a few quickies … Cherry Reds seems the only place near to New St that serves this purpose
Worcester circular starting at the Firefly (and … NOT grab a burger)
UPDATE … had a reply from them yesterday … kitchen doesn’t open on lunchtimes at present, as it did when I visited back in September last year … they are open from 1700 for food so may build our crawl round this as a last stop.
Although Bull Baiters inn (#1 rated venue) doesn’t open till 1700 and could lead us back to the Craft Inn by Foregate St station and straight onto a train home … so thinking we may have to skip those mighty fine burgers.
Heading back to Brum 1830/1900 and do a few city centre venues
Likely meet in the Briar Rose 1000 ish then grab either 1049 or 1103 train to Burton for the festival
Head back to Brum as and when but no later than 2100 into Brum so we can hit Halton Turner taproom as a priority
UPDATE … seems HT haven’t reopened on Fridays post Xmas and may not do so until April
I messaged them last week and won’t be heading there unless I get confirmation of opening from them so will hit a few city centre bars instead
Original crawl has been revised due to Digbrew having sadly closed down and also having learnt that Halton Turner is Friday only at present (hence hitting them after Burton) … so nothing for us in Digbeth anymore!
Meet Briar Rose from 0930
Move to the Wellington at 1000
Perhaps post office vaults next then Uber out to Stirchley
Awaiting confirmation but Attic and Birmingham Brewing Co taprooms should be open from 1300
UPDATE … Birmingham brewing open at 12 … no food truck booked (yet) so need to check in with them beforehand … happy for us to order our own food in if no food truck
Attic open from 1300 … food truck is Zampa Tapas
Cork and Cage is in between the two, opens at 1300 so will also take this in
Uber to Burning Soul taproom around 1530 (confirmed open till 1800) then walk back to town via the Wolf … likely head to North Brewing then finish at Tilt
