Inside Birmingham’s Game Of Thrones-Inspired Cocktail Bar • The Vanguard

It’s safe to say a blossoming mead-ow has come to fruition in Birmingham…

The Vanguard, a cocktail bar that specialises in all things mead, is ready and willing to take your last requests in Brum. No need to thank us. As Tyrion once said: “That’s what I do: I drink and I know things.” [Featured image: HBO]

Mead—aka the oldest alcoholic beverage—tended to make multiple cameos in the hit-series Game Of Thrones. Therefore, this is the bar to drink in if you wish to transport yourself to the gritty landscape of dragons, power struggles and foreboding winters.

Drink all night like a Lannister, while dining on meat platters galore. You’ll even be offered the chance to design your own mead board, giving you an experience fit for a ruler of Winterfell.

Perhaps a forgotten blend, mead is a sweet, traditional affair. It’s created by fermenting honey with water, and is often then mixed with hops, grains, fruits and spices. The Vanguard stocks over 20 different types of mead — all available by the glass.

Elsewhere at The Vanguard, there are dozens of other cocktails to dive into if the sweet taste of mead isn’t your bag. You can even build your own Old Fashioned just the way you like it.

Dubbed as “The UK’s first cocktail bar and meadery”, it’s a Brummie bar you won’t want to miss out on. Particularly if you need to draw plans up to seek vengeance on a Lannister.
