The other day as Tom and I drove into Sutton Coldfield to have a wonder around the shops and grab some lunch. As we were driving in we drove past The Brewhouse & Kitchen and I said to Tom how we needed to try this cool place soon. A week or so later and I get an email from them inviting us to come along for their launch event, cool huh?
It's really beautiful inside, very cosy and welcoming. After a cold walk from the car we obviously headed straight for the seats that were by the log fire.
As soon as you walk in you're surrounded and inspired by local and independent brewing, they even have their own micro brewery where they make their own beers and then name them after local surroundings and events.
We were given a free drink of our choice, I went for a cider (which I cannot remember the name of) and Tom went for the 004 Oaks, which he liked. As the evening went on they brought out samples of food which were accompanied by beers which compliments each dish. We had samples of fish goujons, onion rings, jerk chicken (best jerk chicken I've ever had) and brownies. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of beer but I must say, I was really enjoying the samples along with the food, they all went really well together.
The staff seemed to know their stuff, so if you do go don't be afraid to ask questions.The food on the menu was your classic 'beer' food, nothing adventurous but did sound delicious, reasonably priced as well. We were talking to a couple who had visited before and they said the portions were big so well worth the money.
Tom and I immediately said that we need to come back with or friends and try out the food. I'd highly recommend checking The Brewhouse & Kitchen out if you're around the Birmingham area.
