Taking place across the third Bank Holiday Weekend in May, the Bedminster Beer Trail will offer up an enormous selection of beers which will be sure to satisfy even the most discerning beer drinker. Quickly becoming the newest hub of Bristol’s craft beer scene, Bedminster has seen two new breweries open up in the last year, making South Bristol a beer lovers paradise.
13 venues across North and East Street will make up the trail, consisting of four brewery tap rooms and nine pubs and bars. Participants will be able to collect a trail map from any venue and use it to collect stamps across the three days of celebration. A completed stamp card will get you 10% off on draught beer at any participating venue across the month of June.
An exclusive trail beer will once again be pouring at every venue across the weekend and this year, a portion of sales will be going directly to ‘Caring in Bristol’ to help tackle homelessness across the city. This year the collaboration beer has been designed and brewed by On Point, Bruhaha and the Grain Alchemist – Bedminster’s three newest breweries who all reside within a stones throw of East Street.
Bedminster BID is supporting the trail once again and designs for the posters, maps and collaboration beer cans have been created by local artists, Ed Cheverton and Jayde Perkin.
Mike Fenlon, co-owner of Alpha Bottle Shop & Tap and co-founder of the Beer Trail said: “We are so excited to be bringing the Bedminster Beer Trail back to South Bristol for 2023. Last year’s trail was a massive success, with thousands of people coming to the area to enjoy great beer and support the amazing independent venues which we are so lucky to have here in Bedminster.
“This year the trail will be even bigger and we will be raising money for a fantastic cause at the same time! A portion of sales from each keg sold at participating venues will be given directly to Caring in Bristol. The trail is all about celebrating the amazing community which we have in Bedminster and if we can do that whilst helping out a fantastic charity, then it makes it all the more special.”
