The Black Country Ales Brewery has been established through a genuine love of traditional ales. We brew our outstanding selection of beers using only the finest ingredients to the highest possible standards. Brewing started on the site around 1834 by Edward Guest, taken over by the Bradleys in 1870, and moth balled after WWII. Much of the original equipment is still in use, and we’re very proud to still be holding on to our connection to the brewers of yesterday.Read More
We understand that pubs are a part of our country’s heritage, and a vital centre for our communities. Our goal is to uphold the values of the traditional real ale pub: A comfortable friendly atmosphere, log fires, and most importantly of all, a wide range of top quality ales. Our pubs exist to spread our love of real ale across the West Midlands, so that everyone can enjoy a quality pint. We sell our permanent range of beers brewed on our site in Lower Gornal alongside an array of ales, from West Midlands breweries as well as from further afield.
