Returning to the city this September, the Bristol Craft Beer Festival 2018 has a new home. From 14 until 16 September, the festival will be held at The Amphitheatre in the beautiful Bristol Harbourside.
An all-new can and bottle bar will be offering up local brews from the likes of Electric Bear, New Bristol and Noble & Fierce.
Based out of St Werburghs, Noble & Fierce offer a small but powerful range of canned beers ranging from its Session IPA to its Black Nitro stout. New Bristol Brewery is very much a family affair as head brewer Noel James, runs this modern brewery with his partner, brother and a team of local beer loving folk. Bath’s Electric Bear Brewing Co. takes its name from the old Bear Brewery that used to stand on the corner of the Wellsway. Moving farther afield, Bristol Craft Beer Festival will also be host to Denmark’s Dry & Bitter, Oslo’s Amundsen, Belgium’s Alvinne and France’s La Brasserie Du Mont Saleve, and Denmark’s To Øl.
Other breweries set to appear at this year’s festival are:
Arbor, Beavertown, Boxcar, Brewdog, Bristol Beer Factory, Burnt Mill, Dugges, Gipsy Hill, Good Chemistry, Harbour, Kernel, Left Handed Giant, Lervig, Lost & Grounded, Magic Rock, Mikkeller, Moor, Nothern Monk, OverWorks, Pressure Drop, Sierra Nevada, Siren, Stone, Tempest, Thornbridge, Track, Unity, Verdant, West by Three, Wiper & True and Wylam. The local food heroes recently announced to appear at the festival will be Asado, For Mice and Men, The Little Taquero, Eatchu and Salt & Malt.
Asado has quickly become Bristol’s burger joint of choice since it first opened its doors in 2017, serving up stacked burgers, cooked over a traditional wood fired Argentinean Asado.
Honouring some of the city’s best up and coming beer folk, a lip-smacking line-up of local food heroes and a musical line-up yet to be released, the festival is set to be a spectacular.
