The legendary East Bristol Brewery Trail returns to BS2 and BS5 over the early May bank holiday weekend.
Running for the seventh time, Bristol breweries Moor Beer Co, Good Chemistry, Left Handed Giant Brewing Co, Arbor Ales and Dawkins will be opening their doors to the public for a big party on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 May between 12pm and 8pm.
The locations of each of the five breweries are as follows:
- Arbor Ales (181 Easton Road BS5 0HQ)
- Dawkins Ales (Unit 2 Lawnwood Road BS5 0EF)
- Good Chemistry Brewing (William Street BS2 0RG)
- Left Handed Giant Brewing Co. (Wadehurst Industrial Park, St Philips Road BS2 0JE)
- Moor Beer Co. (Days Road BS2 0QS, open 12pm–6pm on Sunday)
For beer lovers, this free event is your chance to celebrate Bristol’s renowned beer scene, drink brewery-fresh hoppy delights and eat delicious street food from Pepenero’s pizza van, Pickled Brisket and more.
Attendees are encouraged to pick up a trail map at their first brewery, and if you visit all five then you could be in with a chance of winning some great prizes, including a selection of East Bristol breweries beers, T-shirts and tickets to Bristol Craft Beer Festival 2019.
Some of the breweries take card payments, and cash machines are also available on Old Market and Easton Road.
With just a short walk between each brewery, it’s a chance to meet the brewers and learn how each beer is brought to life, explore the area and sample some great local ales while enjoying music and (hopefully) some fantastic sunshine!
The Brewery Trail is centred around the start of the Bristol & Bath cycle path, near Lawrence Hill station and is only 10 minutes from Temple Meads.
