Hop aboard Bristol Brewery Tours' private Bristol ferry for an unique afternoon of beer-tastings and tours.

Your afternoon will start with a craft beer tasting experience on board the fully licensed vessel for around half an hour before taking you to Moor Beer Co Taproom for a tour and tastings of their wonderful Bristol brewed beers.

For the final bit of the tour, the group will begin a guided walk down of around 30 minutes to the Beer Emporium for a special tasting session and opportunity to grab some food.

Plus 15% off food at Beer Emporium and 10% off drinks for the rest of the evening.

An unbeatable insight on to Bristol's brewery scene.

Meet at Grain Barge, Bristol where your guide will be waiting for you.

This tour is a leisurely afternoon stroll however does require some walking so be prepared and also remember to bring a brolly if it's raining. We expect all people to drink and behave responsibly so as to ensure that everyone enjoys the experience.

Over 18s only. Valid ID required. Tastings are included with the ticket, however you may wish to purchase extra at the brewery taproom. Experience lasts approximately 3 to 4 hours.

well organized though a lot of walking and finished well away from start. Beer very much lager/extra strength so as a 65 year old I had an education and a lovely time with my son, but I could have done with more ales! visited Meet outside Grain Barge on 02 Sep 2017

Excellent introduction to Moor Brewery and various craft beers. The food provided was also very good. It would have been better if there hadn't been so much walking. Perhaps a ferry ride back to Kings Street would have been the answer. William visited Meet outside Grain Barge on 12 Aug 2017

Reply from HMS HOPS: Boat + Brewery: Craft Beer Tasting Afternoon

Thanks for your review William. We do mention on the listing/website that around 20-30 minutes walking is involved as we get some fresh air to keep sober between stops. We'd love to add the ferry back however as this journey to our final stop would only be 5 mins on the ferry it's difficult to justify the hire - plus we'd also need to put prices up. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the tour and the food.

Very enjoyable day out. Particularly enjoyed Amarillo beer on boat, all the Moors beers I tried - Dark Attraction, Coffee Stout and Do it Together. Enjoyed real ales at Beer Emporium but didn't like any of the craft beers. The food there was very nice and welcome. Great to meet new people. Walked a bit further than we thought it would be, but managed to get home in one piece. visited Meet outside Grain Barge on 05 Aug 2017

When I booked this event I thought it would show me around the sights of Bristol and have a better understanding of beer and all the different tastes it can have. However I got none of that from the tour. We were given 2 beers first of all on the ferry, with one guide describing the beer very basically and extremely quietly. There was a microphone onboard the ferry and I strongly advise that the tour uses it next time. We got lost multiple times en route to the breweries. We ended at the beer emporium with 2 flights of 6 different beers, with no explaination of what any of them were. It was literally a piss up at a few breweries, I had a fantastic time, but because I was drunk and the other tourists were a good laugh. 2 of the tour guides were great with people and hospitable, but did not teach me anything about beer at all. The other guide, Freddie, was very quiet, awkward and uninviting as a person and could be good if he throws himself into the role; but for this tour was not very good at all. visited Meet outside Grain Barge on 15 Jul 2017

Positives :- Good concept, friendly bunch of people who all seemed to get on,Brewer at Moor was very informative, use of tokens to choose beers was good idea, time was about right, good food at emporium Negatives:- beers on the boat not explained, need a handout sheet, direction and leading to destinations was poor and haphazard tho we got there in the end,, would have been better to have visited another Brewery rather than a pub, needed better explanation of beers at emporium, more walking than expected thru industrial areas. visited Meet outside Grain Barge on 15 Jul 2017

Weather was fabulous, boat crew wonderful. Trip organizers courteous, but there was something missing. For us, we would've liked to know what beer we were drinking. There wasn't enough input about the beer. It was more like a civilized pub crawl ending at the bar and the organisers just disappeared at the end. Little bizarre visited Meet outside Grain Barge on 01 Jul 2017

Reply from HMS HOPS: Boat + Brewery: Craft Beer Tasting Afternoon

I'm genuinely sorry to hear that things haven't gone as expected on this tour and apologies if this was not the case. You should have received information about your drinks and I'm really sorry if the guides did not finish up correctly at the end. Please drop us an email at info@ukbrewerytours.com and we'd be happy to listen to your feedback by email.

Unorganised, guides showed little interest and had little knowledge about beers, price was far too expensive for what was essentially a pub crawl, the boat aspect only taking 20 minutes. Wouldn't recommend. Dean visited Meet outside Grain Barge on 25 Jun 2016

Reply from HMS HOPS: Boat + Brewery: Craft Beer Tasting Afternoon

I'm sorry that you had a bad experience on what was only our 2nd tour. We will work to improve things and have added an extra brewery to the event plus given extra training to our new tour guides so that they can provide extra knowledge to our guests. Please feel free to email us to come back again and try out the tour without charge on another occasion.

Had a great afternoon on the ferry tour. Thought it was great value for money given that we had beers on the boat from Crane, then amazing beers at Moor. I understand that the tour at Moor couldn't go ahead that day but the guides were really good and made up for it with extra drinks at Beer Emporium. Definitely worth checking out if heading to Bristol.

Reply from HMS HOPS: Boat + Brewery: Craft Beer Tasting Afternoon

Hi Charlotte, Thanks for your reply. I'm glad to hear you had a great time especially after we did have a few issues at Moor Brewery on the day. I'm glad that you still enjoyed the trip and hope you can join us again on another event.

We weren't given any info about any of the breweries or the beers we were tasting. We didn't get a tour of the Moor Brewery. And the walking tour was just us walking to the Beer Emporium. We were only allowed cask at the Beer Emporium (I understand keg beers can be more expensive), but I think I had just under 5 pints for £30 - at £6/pint I essentially had an expensive pub crawl.

Reply from HMS HOPS: Boat + Brewery: Craft Beer Tasting Afternoon

I'm sorry on this occasion that there were issues with the tour at Moor Brewery. Keg has now been added at Beer Emporium and extra training has been provided to our guides.

We had a really fun afternoon on the Bristol beer tour. All-in-all, a great excuse to get out and about, to meet like-minded people, and to sink a few beers. Happy days! James visited Meet outside Grain Barge on 19 Mar 2016
