Best pubs/bars for beer selection

We are coming down for the weekend in a couple of weeks for the Cardiff-Everton game and have been looking into where to go drinking but were just wondering where is good primarily for their selection of beer not just real ale but also continental/world lagers and craft beers?

You could try the Rummer Taven opposite the Castle but, to be honest, Cardiff is heaving with pubs and bars so just follow your nose when you come out of the station.

No debate here - The City Arms wins hands down : http://www.thecityarmscardiff.com/

An honourable mention for Zero Degrees - think clinical-themed micro-brewery with wagamama-style food. Much better than I've made it sound : tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g186460-…

Chapter arts centre in Canton which is walking distance from the ground has a large range of European beers, plus it's a safe venue.

Yet another vote for the City Arms here. A fine array of beers every time I've been there, including things I've never seen anywhere else!

Wgere are you staying? Maybe a great pub nearby.

City Arms is a good choice. Suggest you stay in the city center and have a look at all the great pubs within walking distance.

Who suggested Chapter Arts Center for visiting football fans? - must be the marketing manager!
