Bristol - Moor Beer Co brewery tap

On 5 March, a coach took Oxford CAMRA Beer Festival volunteers from Oxford to Bristol. The coach arrived in Colston Street at 11.30am before many pubs had opened.

Steve and I walked to the Moor Beer Tap arriving soon after the noon opening time.
Bicycle racks are provided outside the entrance to Moor Beer Tap in Days Road, not far from the end of the Bristol & Bath Railway Path.
To celebrate the launch of Union' Hop, a special offer on the day was a pint of the 4.1% ABV British hopped ultra pale ale and a Pieminister pie for £6.
While the pies were warming up we each chose three beers in third pint glases. I chose Union' Hop, So' Hop and Nor' Hop. These pale ales are all 4.1% ABV, unfined and naturally hazy, with hops from Britain, Southern and Northern hemispheres respectively.
Once the pies had warmed up it was time to take advantage of the pie offer including a pint of Union' Hop.
Before leaving Moor beer tap, a final third pint of a rare beer from the guest ale tap was irresistible. Take Five (7% ABV) is an Imperial Stout with vanilla and figs from Cerveza Domus (Toledo, Spain).
Moor Beer Company has won numerous awards for its beers and a visit to the brewery tap in Bristol is recommended (Open Thursday, Friday and Saturday).

Sadly, there was not enough time for me to go inside the Barley Mow, the nearest pub to Moor Beer Company and also Bristol Beer Factory's flagship pub.
However, there was still time to visit other beer bars and pubs in Bristol before catching the coach back to Oxford at 6.30pm.

  1. What a fun day out! I've visited Bristol once but would love to return. I've never heard of a third pint glass before. Very interesting.

  2. Some of the common examples of corporate events Chicago are: Launching a product, road shows, concerts, social events and media advent with corporate sponsorship. They are managed according to their particular nature, keeping in mind the aim of the event.
