    Got tickets for Birmingham away as I’m working in the area, just wondering where people will be headed. Looked online but apparently not away fan friendly around the ground. Cheers

    Do not drink in or around the ground. Absolute toilet.

    In the city there's loads. Post Office Vaults and Bacchus are quirky underground ale houses, above ground The Wellington and Sun on the Hill are decent but usually busy, bit further away from the ground but still in the centre is Pint Shop, Lost and Found, Cosy Club that all do a variety of beers and the latter two are massive so won't have to worry about space. There's also Brewdog and Cherry reds just outside the station, along with 2 Wetherspoons (Briar Rose and Square Peg - the latter is a bit of a shithole though) within walking distance of each other.

    Stick to the city centre and wander down afterwards. The Anchor used to be your best bet closer to the ground, but it changed hands a few years ago so I'm not sure what their view is now. Their beer's got worse by all accounts too.

    Broad Street is a toilet. There's a Spoons and that's about it.

    Brindley place next door though is nice - there's a couple of good pubs there on the canal, plus pitcher and piano, slug and lettuce and a couple of other chain-type drinking/eating places. It's a trek to the ground from there though so would recommend getting a taxi.
