They're not actually all that rare, just that the venues catering to
children tend to be rather more visible. Look for a bear pub, and you've
probably found a decent pint. Bears don't tend to go in for tiny drinks
which are 50% sugar and 50% umbrellas.
See also Irish pubs which Irish people go to as opposed to one plastered in
green crap and screens full of football. So that'd be a vote for the Anchor
Digbeth except I don't think they have a beer garden.
ISTR that the Fountain usually has three or four Real Ales on, although it's
been at least a decade since my last visit.
