Faculty & Firkin, Holt Street, Gosta Green, Aston, Birmingham, West Midlands B7 4BG

Brewing commenced 1997 but ceased 1999. Currently still a non-brewing pub named 'Gosta Green'.

Formerly the Holt Brewery Co. Ltd offices, built and dated 1906. At fascia level on the corner, a Holt squirrel in terracotta. On the south elevation, partly obscured by a modern pub sign and several inserted windows, is a faded painted sign: 'HOLT BREWERY CO LTD ... BREWERS OF (obscured) MALT ALES & STOUTS'.

Holt Street is named after the brewery.
