Looking for the best beers in Bristol? This clever location-savvy audio tour of Bristol's breweries and taprooms takes you straight to the source. Get ready to immerse yourself into this city's brilliant craft beer scene.
Everyone in your group will need their own set of headphones and an Android / iPhone, so each of you can follow the tour. Your friendly audio guide Heather will give you the back-story behind four breweries en-route and some more a short walk away. Surprising you with interesting facts about the buildings and areas you pass by. All of the audio, including a little beer-based knowledge, will be shared as you walk - so you can relax and chat amongst yourselves while enjoying your beers. Cheers!
At the second stop, you will have a table booked for you. Here you'll each enjoy three different third pints of delicious beers made on the premises. A member of staff will talk you through them and answer any questions you have.
For the remainder of the audio tour route, you can choose to stop for refreshments as many times as you like. As well as the four breweries, you will get the chance to enjoy a pint in an award-winning pub's beer garden, owned by Bristol Beer Factory.
So that you can plan future beer adventures in Bristol, while you walk you'll be given the story behind several other breweries and how to reach them. Your audio tour guide Heather will give you tips on some late-night drinking venues close to the end of the tour.
There is one more brewery that Heather mentions on the audio as you walk past that has decided not to reopen their taproom just yet. When this reopens there will be five directly along the route.
The walking tour starts at Bristol Temple Meads train station. Your beer tasting is booked for one hour after your start time, which allows for about twenty minutes of walking and and time to check out Bristol's newest brewpub along your way. The total length of your tour will take will depend on how much beer you'll drink, how many stops you choose to make and your drinking speed.

Really good tour. We were mirrored by a tour with a guide and thought that our experience was superior. Will do it again, there were plenty of beers we didn't get to try.
Great tour and a good introduction to Bristol Breweries
It was really straightforward and was a lovely tour of breweries from an area of Bristol that I don't visit that often. The guide was informative and friendly and the tour was a good length.
This was a really fun tour! I'm normally a bit sceptical of pre-recorded tours but it was full of really interesting info and took me to taprooms and parts of Bristol that I wouldn't have come across on my own. All of the staff knew Heather (the tour host) as well, which made it feel really friendly and genuine even though you're taking yourself round the route 😊
Great tour, some lovely beers and great to see such a booming craft beer scene
This was a brilliant experience! We were given this tour as a gift. Learnt some stuff about Bristol, the brewing process and drank loads of beer! What's not to like? The technology of the self-guided tour and audio app worked pretty well and only got confused once for about 200 yards. We went to Little Martha Brewery, Moor Brewery for a well-explained tasting session, the Barley Mow pub, Newton Park Brewery and Wiper and True Brewery. A couple more were doable but that was enough! Fantastic
Really enjoyed this self guided tour around Bristol's craft beer scene. The goody bag of snacks and even a birthday card was a nice personal touch.
Really easy to follow with great instructions & interesting facts. Very much enjoyed!
Brilliant beer tour, excellently planned and some lovely touches from Heather (including a birthday card for my partner’s birthday which made him feel so special - thank you!)
Would recommend to anyone who loves beer to do this!
Had a great day out, the audio guide was excellent and discovered some great new places - thanks so much!
I booked the audio tour for my boyfriend’s birthday and we had a great time. The tour was really interesting and it took us to some real hidden gems in Bristol. The staff at Moor Brewery were super helpful and we got to try lots of unique and tasty beers! We will definitely be returning and have already been recommending the experience to friends and family.
An easy to walk tour that would be pretty difficult without this guide as it is all inconspicuous corners of industrial areas!
The people at Moor were very attentive and talked us through the beers we were trying.
The tour ended at a nice couple of taprooms which sold good food.

Heather is the founder of Bristol Hoppers. She has lived in Bristol for more than 20 years and still loves to show this off. Her love for craft beer began after the first brewery taproom opened in Bristol. Over the weekend you'll probably find Heather in one of the city's taprooms or craft beer bars - unless she happens to be away camping instead! Heather enjoys encouraging others to drink locally and meeting like-minded people.
