The Wellington Specialist Real Ale Pub

The Wellington Specialist Real Ale Pub

Being a Birmingham based company ourselves, this week we thought we would put the spotlight on one of our local pubs – The Wellington


The Wellington Pub or the ‘Wellie’ is located on Bennett’s Hill in the centre of Birmingham.  Backed by Black Country Inns this popular pub first opened its doors in December 2014 with 10 handpumps.  The pub was a hit from the start and within the first six months of trading, it had to increase its bar and install another six hand pumps.  Unbelievably during its first year, an incredible 2610 different ales passed through its pumps!


The pub continued to grow and by 2014 it had built an upstairs bar and a roof terrace taking the total number of Harry Mason hand pumps to a staggering 27!


Serving 8 regular ales and 9 guest ones it can be quite a tough act to choose.  To help the customer each pump is individually numbered and displayed on the ‘Beer Board’.  The board displays the brewery name, the beer name, the ABV (alcohol by volume) and the price per pint.  The board also displays the beer colour which is rated from A to E with A being the palest and E the darkest.  

If you are planning a trip to Birmingham a visit to the Wellington is a must – just note that they don’t sell food at the Wellington however you are free to bring your own or even have a takeaway delivered and don’t worry about plates and cutlery as they are all provided. Oh and the Wellington is music free – it’s all about good conversation and great beer!
