From Kings Heath, Kings Norton to Kingstanding the Kraken is alive and well. From the depths of the sea arises a dark liquid so powerful it will fuel any night out. As we approach Autumn & Winter our taste buds slowly change looking for warming & soothing notes. Incorporate Toffee, allspice, clove & ginger and you have the base notes of Kraken Rum. Snuggle up in The Floodgate Yard as the sun starts to dip below the horizon slightly earlier each night. If you are in need of a little more heat than our heaters provide then you can always get the blood pumping during a game of Bleachers Baseball, Curl Club Curling & PitPat Mini Golf. We look forward to seeing you soon and promise to check for giant squids before you arrive.

In 1963 The Crystals famously sang; 'Da Doo Run Run' or was it 'Da Doo Rum Rum'? The historic sweet spirit made from sugar cane has seen a comeback in recent years and is a firm favorite at The Floodgate. An ingredient in winter warmer cocktails to summer thirst quenchers it really is the best all-rounder, Just like Crickets Jason Holder.

Jameson Whiskey (or Whisky for the Scotts) needs no introduction. An agile global classic that is good in just about any situation; straight, on the rocks, coca-cola, ginger ale, ginger beer, even a splash of water, and everything in between. J for Jewellery Quarter, or J for Jameson, you decide?

The appreciation of Tequila has moved on leaps and bounds in the UK over the past 20 years. What was once a cheap shot to be done on a Friday night with your friends to get you in the 'Karaoke Zone' has become something rather more complex. T for Tamworth, T for Tyseley, T for Tanworth in Arden, or T for Tequilla?

Whether you partied in the '90s, '00s, or even in 2021 Sambuca is a classic spirit synonymous with Birthdays, Stag Do's, Hen Do's, New Jobs, Old Jobs, and every in-between party you can think of. From Minworth to Majorca or Tenerife to Tyseley we have all clinked our shot glasses to welcome someone in or send someone off.

Well, Birmingham, Local Social Media went into meltdown this week when the one & only ''Tom Cruise'' (Or possibly Tom Booze) was spotted in our great city. From Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook the memes started flying in. From sightings in The Bullring, eating custard in the Custard Factory to Asha's on Newhall Street (apparently 2 Chicken Tikka Masalas were consumed) and even playing PitPat at The Floodgate. Apparently, when our games marshal asked what his score was he said 'Show me the money' and ordered another PitPat PornStar Martini. When we found out he boogied on the 18th hole, our Marshal Bonnie asked him again 'Please, I don't want to end it this way.' Tom Replied (as Brian of course): Jesus, everything ends badly, otherwise it wouldn't end.” Then he left.
