The 23 new Birmingham and West Midlands pubs named in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide 2024

The CAMRA Good Beer Guide 2023, which surveys 4,500 of the best pubs across the UK, including many from Birmingham, is the definitive beer drinker’s guide for those seeking the best pints in the nation’s pubs

The best pubs and bars in Birmingham have been named in the new Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) Good Beer Guide for 2024.

The annual guide, released by CAMRA and on sale now, offers an insight into the best pubs, bars and clubs around the UK.

It highlights venues selected by its members “as places to savour good beers from small breweries as well as cask-conditioned lagers and world beers and some pubs are highlighted for serving real ciders too”.

There are dozens of venues across Birmingham, Sandwell and Solihull that have made it into the CAMRA Good Beer Guide 2024 - with many regularly featured year after year. And this is the 51st edition. It was released ahead of The Tamworth Tap winning the prestigious CAMRA Pub of the Year award for the second year running.

This year’s 2024 Guide contains 910 newly featured UK pubs, which is a fantastic prospect for the pub trade which has been struggling to stay afloat in recent years following the pandemic and rising fuel costs. The trade also faces an impending threat from unlawful demolitions, which CAMRA has declared a ‘national scandal’ in the wake of the demolition of the Crooked House in Himley.

CAMRA Chairman, Nik Antona said: “The last few years have been an incredibly difficult time for the industry, and we need more support than ever before to keep our nation’s pubs and breweries open and thriving. I’d encourage everyone to use this year’s Guide to visit the very best pubs and breweries across the UK and support them for generations to come.”

Overall, 117 pubs in the West Midlands region feature in the 2024 guide, and we’ve taken a look at the 23 new enteries from the West Midlands.
