We’re really proud to be moving our festival right into the heart of Bristol, giving the brewing community in Bristol, and the craft beer revolution at large the stage it deserves. After two years in the yard at Motion, we felt it time to take the show onto a whole other level. The fact we’re so close to King Street, the vibrant heart of the Bristol beer scene, and Wapping Wharf, which is such a destination for food and drink fans from all over, made so much sense to us.
While the site is different to what we’ve been used to, when the opportunity arose we knew we had to take it and that’d it’d be perfect to make this event something really special and unique. Building a real carnivalesque celebration of modern beer in such a prominent city centre location is a first, not only in Bristol but in the country as a whole.
We’ll be packing the space with awesome halls to house the brewers and covered sitting areas. We’ll be bringing together an awesome food market right on the bank of the Avon, looking across to the Wapping Wharf and the museum. We’ll be creating an gorgeous outdoor area to enjoy the beers with our music stage taking the party onto another level. Every space in between will be filled with you, the wonderful crowd of beer geeks, food and drink lovers, and good time seekers that make our festivals the best.
We can’t wait to enjoy the late summer sun, beer in hand, partying the night away with you and the brewers. Roll on September!
