A collaboration between the folk at The Old Bookshop and those at Wiper and True make The Old Butchers a match made in craft beer bar heaven. Wiper & True have a solid reputation for being one of the UK’s most interesting and innovative brewers, and The Old Butchers celebrate their fantastic work by having six of their beers on tap alongside limited edition bottles and releases.

Zero Degrees has quite the sprawling space in it’s city centre venue – with the brewery making up part of th site. The impressive beer makers want you to see, smell and taste everything on offer. They have a selection of speciality beers, long running favourites and a vintage selection and there is just something wonderful about sipping on a drop that has been carefully created in th same place that you are enjoying it.
Bristol Brewery School
Address: 20A Wilson Street, Bristol BS2
We adore both the beers and the space down at the Bristol Brewery School. This fantastic bar and space is nestled away smack bang in the centre (by Cabot Circus) and if you weren’t aware you’d never know it was there. Owners Noel and Maria have created a venue where you can not only come and enjoy delicious beers, but you can also book yourself onto a course to completely immerse yourself in everything relating to brewing. A must for any craft beer fan.
