Next door to but completely different from the Wellington, as there is an obvious emphasis on keg beers here: over 20 lines available. The six hand pumps had a variety of styles when I was here: Timothy Taylor Landlord, Maggs Mild, Adnams Old and three modern pale ales. There were a few people here at Saturday lunchtime, some watching the football on TV, though not as many as at the Wellington. There are three separate rooms and a drinking area in front of the bar, all nicely done up with a mix of repurposed timber and bare brick walls. On the whole I prefer the Wellington for its larger range of well-kept real ales, though it has an issue with over-crowding, and the Joint Stock for its classy architecture, though the beer is over-priced. This one could grow on me, I suppose.

Good Beer Guide 2020 New Entry - which is one of the easier predictions to have made.

Old Town house, with a smart interior make over. A huge blackboard details the 6ish Cask and 20 Kegs - including descriptions - so spent some time deliberating what to have.

Both pints were pefect (Shiny Brewing 4 Wood and Roosters Capability Brown).

Food is good.

Slightly expensive - with Camden Hells an eye watering £6.50.

But you knew I was going to say that.

ORIGINAL REVIEW April 2019.

A revelation.You enter with the bar running down the left side and dominated by the 20 keg serving gantry.However just beyond are 6 handpumps offering nirvana.The pumps just have handwritten ale names but the sight of Marble Dobber 6.6% was a no brainer.The other choices were from some leading brewers.
There is a modest amount of seating around the bar,with a calm back area with some high tables and narrow tables with bench seating.On the first floor is a kitchen and dining area,which was packed.It's an old building with a fine staircase leading the the higher floors and is right next to the Welly.
I can remember when the Pint Shop in Cambridge had this kind of ale line up,but sadly that star faded.Let's hope the team here can maintain their focus on the very best real ale,if so this is an unmissable treat when searching for tip top ale in Central Birmingham.

UPDATE

Sadly as I suspected above ,the previous nirvana range of real ale was aimed at helping the operation get a foothold in the local drinking scene.A revisit found a less adventurous selection on handpump and nothing much over 4.6%.Minus one mark,but there is still some interesting gear on keg such as Buxton Axe Edge and Tiny Rebel Amplified Double Imperial Stay Puft Marshmellow Porter.Still worth including on any beer tour of Birmingham however.
