£12.50 - Bristol Brewery Taprooms Tour with beer package (self-guided)
Time & Location
About The Event
Suitable for 2 - 6 people.
On your way between the five breweries, of which you'll be given the back-story of each one, you'll learn interesting facts about the buildings and areas you pass by and be given a little beer based knowledge. The tour also gives the choice to stop and enjoy a pint in a beer garden at an award-winning traditional pub, owned by a Bristol brewery.
At the first brewery, about a fifteen minute walk from the start point, you will have a table booked for you. Here you'll each enjoy three different third pints of delicious beers made on the premises included and a member of staff to talk you through them and answer any questions you have about the brewery. The table is yours from 15 minutes after your start time and you have it for an hour. Please ensure you start your tour at your exact chosen time or even a little earlier if you like to take your walking slowly.
So that you can plan future beer adventures in Bristol, you'll be given the story behind several other breweries that are not quite on the route, and how to reach them. Your audio tour guide (me) will also give you tips on some later night drinking venues close to the end of the tour.
There's enough stops and advice to keep you entertained for more than one day, so if you have the time, plan to take the tour as two parts over a weekend or two. Do not try to have a drink everywhere in one day!
All of the breweries on the East Bristol Brewery Trail are along the route or pointed out. The next trail is planned for the August bank holiday, so you can swat up in advance or use this audio tour to take you around on the day.
Why an audio tour?
My passion for sharing things about Bristol's fascinating past and introducing people to our craft beer scene is huge. These audio tours give you more information than you'd get on a guided tour, as there's no need to stop all the time to gather a group - I (Heather) can talk to you as you walk. Using your location, the clever app that's used plays audio automatically, at exactly the right time and place. You can walk at your own pace and have as many beer stops as you like without being rushed along or having to look at your phone.
How it works:
Before your tour date, you'll receive a unique code and instructions on how to download the tour on the VoiceMap platform (you will need to have an Android or i-phone with the ability to download an app). Your code accesses the tour, which you can download in advance to use maps offline if you like. Once the tour is downloaded it will stay on your phone forever, so if you want to take it over a few different days then it has that flexibility.
I will book your table so you must start at your chosen time on this option.
If you just want to take the audio tour without the commitment to a time, you can book at standalone audio tour by clicking here.
The actual walking bit (with no stopping), takes around 40 minutes, starting at Bristol Temple Meads train station. It finishes about a fifteen minute walk from the start point. The amount of time you spend taking the whole tour will depend on how much beer you'll have and your drinking speed.
To take the tour you will need:
- A set of headphones.
- A smartphone with either an Android or iPhone operating system to be able to download the app.
- To check and follow Covid 19 rules that are in place on the day you take your tour. (facemasks at times, track and trace, group sizes, etc)
