Welcome to the Gunmakers Arms

The Gunmakers Arms, Two Towers Brewery's real ale pub on the edge of Birmingham's city centre, opened it's doors a few months ago after a dramatic transformation. Just a few minutes' walk from Snow Hill Station or a ten minute stroll from Birmingham city centre the 'new' Two Towers Brewery tap now has TEN real ale handpulls serving ales from the brewery, which, as you'll see from the huge 'shop window' revealing all, is just next door, across the beer garden (more of a courtyard, really).
New phone number for the Gunmakers Arms: 0121 238 5197.

Gift vouchers

We can personalise brewery tour gift vouchers with who they’re from, who to and a little message; ‘lots of love’, ‘kind regards’ or even ‘Merry Christmas’. Brewery tours are great fun. They involve drinking beer, looking around the brewery, drinking beer, listening to the head brewer, Mark, explaining the brewing process, enlivened by amusing anecdotes, and drinking beer. It’s very educational. A tour is £15. With a meal it’s £21. Just call 0121 439 3738 or email

Brew Day Experience

You can buy a gift voucher for this, too, or you can just book one for yourself. Starts at 9am and takes you through the whole brew from mashing to the final transfer to the fermenter, after which you relax with a beer (around 4.30pm) before departing with a complimentary 3-bottle pack of Two Towers Brewery ales. Includes a full-English breakfast and lunch (with beer!). Led by our head brewer, Mark. The Brew Day Experience is hands-on and close-up so we welcome any number from just one to six, but no more. Any Friday (groups on other days by arrangement). £99 per person. Full details on the website soon. Call us on 0121 439 3738 or email
