Electric Ale

Inspired by The Electric Cinema and brewed locally by Two Towers Brewery in Birmingham's historic Jewellery Quarter, we are proud to offer our very own label of bottled ale.

Rich, pale and refreshing, the ale is made using traditional methods and three English-grown hop varieties. The result is an ale with ‘zing’, supported by complex fruits, biscuit malt and toffee flavours.
Electric Ale is also available with a branded glass as a gift set from our lobby.
Wines & champagnes
We offer a number of red, white and rose wines from across the globe, including:
Alain Mecon Cabernet Sauvignon (France)
Sierra Grande Pinot Noir (Chile)
Casa Defra Pinot Grigio (Italy)
Marmesa Vineyards Chardonnay (California)
Adobe Rose Rapel Valley (Chile)
 
 
We also have three different champagnes to choose from, as well as Prosecco:
Theophile
Etienne Lefèvre Grand Cru
Pommery Grand Cru Vintage 2002
Prosecco Spumante Brut, Sacchetto (Italy) - available as either a 750ml bottle or smaller 200ml bottle
 

Cocktails
Every few weeks we offer new cocktails themed around the films we are showing, plus we have a great range of house cocktails and mocktails:
Blade Rummer - Gosling's black seal rum, fresh lime, Angostura bitters & ginger ale
Last Of The Mojitos - Havana Club rum, Chartreuse liqueur, sugar syrup, fresh mint & lime topped up with soda water
Cooler Hand Luke - Monkey Shoulder whisky, lemon juice, rosemary & ginger syrup topped up with soda water
The Pink Panther (mocktail) - raspberry
puree, apple juice and lime shaken over ice

 
 
Poptail
You might have noticed that we don't serve popcorn (a bit too messy), but our bar staff have gone one better by crafting our very own popcorn flavoured cocktail.
Made up of Snow Queen organic vodka, butterscotch schnapps, popcorn syrup and single cream shaken over ice, it's a delightfully unique way of enjoying popcorn at the cinema without getting sticky hands.
 
 
Absinthe 
The Electric Cinema is proud to be associated with La Fée Absinthe. 
We are only one of a handful of establishments in the country to serve Absinthe Parisienne using a traditional fountain. 
These fountains were found in France in the 19th century and it was not uncommon to see one at each end of the bar pouring four glasses simultaneously.
