Bedminster Beer Trail convinced Bristolians from all over the city to make their way to the BS3 postcode last June. Heading south of the river, beer enthusiasts ticked off specialty beers at 12 independent venues on North and East Street. All specially chosen to celebrate the Jubilee bank holiday weekend.
This December, everyone is invited again to Bedminster to sample some special Christmas-themed drinks (not just beer this time) and celebrate the exciting neighbourhood. You’ll have the whole of the festive period to complete it. So you can go at a steady pace this time around – rather than cram in everywhere over a busy weekend.
It has grown too, with a total of 17 of Bedminster’s finest pubs, bars, breweries and restaurants signed up this time. So there’s a lot more to tackle. Participating venues include Alpha Bottle Shop, The Old Bookshop, KASK Wine, Tobacco Factory, The Steam Crane, Spotted Cow, Bristol Beer Factory Taproom, Hen & Chicken and lots more.
Other than the growth in size, the format of Bedminster Beer Trail is largely the same as it was last time. Vibrant and colourful posters (like the one below) have been provided for venues to make them easier to spot. While maps and stamp cards are available for happy trailers to keep track of where you’ve been. No one should need to keep a mental tally going with all that booze available!
A venue will stamp your card when you purchase any drink in any size throughout the month of December. When you’ve collected 12 stamps from separate venues, hand in your completed card, alongside some personal details, at any venue. At the end of the month, all completed stamp cards will be entered into a prize draw. To learn more head here.
