ICYMI, everyone around Bristol harbour right now is talking about the news of a fourth BBF venue, Junction, opening soon in the heart of Wapping Wharf. The new site will join the likes of our Tap Room, The Barley Mow, and the Arnolfini Café Bar as must-visit destinations for BBF fans, craft beer drinkers, and fellow Bristolians supporting local businesses.
As you know, we proudly brew our beer in BS3, where you’ll find our Brewery Tap Room and Studio BBF (the perfect spot for watching sport or hosting a private party). You can find our beer popping up all over the city, from your favourite independent pub, to Ashton Gate Stadium, just 300 meters away from the place it’s made. So, what makes Junction so special to us?
As Bristol's longest-standing independent brewery, we couldn’t become part of the iconic Wapping Wharf community without making a nod to history; the name, Junction, is a nod to the historical Bristol Harbour Railway. But with our eyes firmly on the future, and our hearts on our sleeves, we’re creating a pocket of BBF in the city centre. We’re using the space to champion fellow independent producers through food suppliers, guest Bristol beers, and other locally produced drinks.
Expect a proper pub; think scotch eggs and ploughman’s lunches, and roasts on Sundays. We’re working with long-time friend of BBF, chef and restaurateur Josh Eggleton, on a menu of classic pub grub dishes. “We’re aiming to create a destination for everyone, from those popping by for lunch, an after-work beer, or somewhere to enjoy a drink by the harbourside." says Sam Burrows, BBF’s Managing Director.
We look forward to welcoming BBF friends, old and new, at Junction soon.
