Craft Beer In Bristol

From IPAs through to milk stouts, craft beer in Bristol is experiencing a revolution. As well as an amazing range of international companies, there is also a hot line-up of local smaller breweries who produce excellent and innovative pints. But don't take our word for it, head to one of these pubs and bars to sample some of their hoppy delights.

Bristol Craft Beer Experience

@ Meet outside Grain Barge, Hotwell Rd, Bristol BS8 4RU on Saturday 27th April 2024 and 6 other Saturdays

For the ultimate tour revolving around your favourite tipple, try out the Bristol Craft Beer Experience. You'll begin by sailing down the harbour and trying out some flavours, before a guided tour of the Moor Brewery, complete with taproom tastings and nibbles to finish.

The Apple

Moored along Old City, The Apple is something of a drinking institution. Set within a converted barge boat, the pint lovers stock a massive range of ales, spirits and ciders, including their own potent 'Old Bristolian' brew. 

Small Bar

Despite its unassuming name, Small Bar's knowledge is anything but little. The staff at this laid-back watering hole have been trained up in all things hops-related, meaning they can give you the skinny on the best brew from their 31 taps of local and global world-class beer.
