Bar watch: Pure Bar & Kitchen

Purity continues on its mission to spread good beer with the opening of a rather fabulous new bar (in collaboration with Simpsons and M&B) just a mere stumble away from Victoria Square. A worthy addition to Brum’s craft beer scene, it’s got around 20 or so brews right now including, as you’d expect, some of Purity’s best offerings together with a small but perfectly formed posse of pints from Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, USA and Wales.
There’s grub too. Bar snacks include old favourites pork scratchings and home-roasted spiced nuts, together with a tongue tingling chilli sausage roll that puts pretty much every other example to shame. If you’re more peckish there’s a decent range of hearty gastropub-ish offerings like slow roast belly of pork (these pigs just don’t get a break eh?) and brewer’s grain risotto for the veggies. Decor is industrial chic with neat pockets of space suitable for couples on a hot date as well as groups of beer nuts ticking a few more off their list. Bonus points for the unusual loo signage too. Ladies take care or you just might catch sight of an altogether less appetising ‘sausage roll’…
