Bristol Beer Week

 

Bristol Beer Week is a collection of events showcasing everything beery that Bristol and the West Country have to offer. Bristol Beer Week began life in 2013 because the organisers thought it would be fun to have an event which promoted a brilliant city and its budding beer industry.

Says Steve of the Bristol Beer Week team, “We wanted to be free of ties and as nonpartisan as possible, to encourage universal involvement and a real sense of community. The concept is very simple, anyone can be involved in Bristol Beer Week if they have an interest in good beer. And by that, we mean any kind of beer, we don’t do labels. Beer Week is an opportunity to show people what beer and Bristol means to everyone. Beyond that there are no rules.”

The 2015 events are coming in thick and fast, but as always, events aren’t generally finalised until a month or so before the week. The best place to keep up to date with everything this year is via the Bristol Beer Week website, which will have full details of all the breweries and venues involved.

Some of the highlights so far include a complete takeover of the Hillgrove by Wiper & True; the opening of the new Left Handed Giant tap room at their brewery in St Phillips; a Moor beer dinner at Birch restaurant in Southville and beer Olympics at their brewery tap; a huge festival of beer across all three venues that make up the Beermuda Triangle on King Street (Small Bar, Royal Navy Volunteer and Beer Emporium); a homebrewing competition run by Brew Bristol; a Bristol vs Belgium tasting session with experts Andrian Tierney-Jones and Tim Webb; and various other brewing demonstrations, open days and beer talks along with several special beers brewed for the week by local breweries.
