Bristol Brewery Tours


Bristol Brewery Tours launched in 2016 and runs monthly tours visiting local breweries and craft beer venues in the city. 

They currently have two tours available to the public, and private tours are available upon request.

HMS Hops
Hop aboard HMS Hops on their beer and boat tour which sails down the harbourside, tasting local beer along the way to Moor Brewery. Learn about the brewing process and tour the equipment at this multi-award winning brewery before heading down to Beer Emporium on King Street for cheese and meats, plus more local beers.

All tastings included in the price, along with a knowledgeable local guide. The tour runs 2 - 3 Saturdays a month. The tour lasts around 5 hours.

Private tours are available to groups of 10-40 people on Wednesdays to Sundays.

Bristol Beer Tasting Tour
Their Bristol Beer Tasting Tour visits three local brewery taprooms where a knowledgeable guide will take you through the history of the breweries and give you tastings to enjoy at each stop. Depending on the day of your visit you’ll head to Moor Brewery, Good Chemistry, Left Handed Giant, Arbor, Lost and Ground, Wiper and True, Small Bar or Beer Emporium.

All tastings are included in the price. The tour runs once a month on Saturdays.

Private tours are available to groups of 8-25 people on Wednesdays to Sundays.
