Fresh Beer Japanese Street Food Plants Galore

The Taproom, Old Market, is a destination venue for beer lovers. 

Super-fresh beer, expertly served by our highly trained team. Sweeping, expansive views onto monolithic, gleaming silver fermentation vessels. A vast beer garden replete with gently swaying grasses, towering floral spires and gently rustling trees. Umami-bomb Japanese street food. More plants than you can shake a stick at. All this and more are waiting for those in the know on a small industrial estate sandwiched between Old Market and Easton.

A 500-capacity space with the city’s most exciting, diverse events lineup, everyone is invited to the taproom. From brewery tours to monthly yoga events, pottery workshops to jumble sales, there’s something for everyone. And it’s not just our events calendar that’s expansive; our drinks menu is a proud showcase of producer excellence. In addition to beers brewed metres from your seat, we serve natural and premium wines curated by Cave Bristol, locally made spirits from Psychopomp and Circumstance, local ciders, alongside a thoughtful selection of alcohol-free and soft drinks.

See you at the bar.
