The Bristol Beer Factory Tap Room relives its purpose as part of the old brewery originally started in 1865.  Fast forward over 150 years to the present and you can now relax and enjoy a BBF beer brewed only a few yards from where you sit.

Inside our cool contemporary Tap Room you can try a selection of up to 16 dangerously drinkable ales from cask, keg or bottle - perfect for trying a little bit of what you fancy, a lazy lunchtime pint or as your weekend kick starter.

Our shop is also stocked full of our bottled beers, gift packs, t-shirts and other merchandise to enjoy at home or in the tap room. 

We are situated next to Marks Bakery on North Street, just a short hop skip & a jump from the Tobacco Factory and the rest of North Street's finest.

A great start and a great finish to your day or evening out. 



We hold a number of regular and irregular events at the Tap Room, both open to the public and private functions (get in touch for hire info).

Our regular beer and curry nights will set your tastebuds tingling; the monthly Tap Room Tasting Series will give you a great insight into the world of beer, one style at a time; and our brewery tours will educate you all about beer and brewing.

Bristol Beer Club members can enjoy these events at a reduced price as well as a host of discounts and freebies, find out more here.

A few of our upcoming events are listed here, for further information about everything we have planned, check out the BBF Events page, like the Tap Room on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
