Bristol Hoppers Tryanuary Special Beer Tour on Thursday 17 January 2019Posted on: 04 Jan 2019
Those marvellous Bristol-based bastions of beer are at it again - this time hailing in the new year with their Tryanuary Special Beer Tour which takes place on Thursday 17th January 2019.
Refreshingly timed when most other Tom, Dick and Harry's are smugly waxing lyrical about joining the gym, giving up smoking or abstaining from alcohol, this merry band of ale quaffers are defiantly and proudly cocking a snook to such pious (and usually short-lived) traditions with a three-stop-hop to some of the best pubs in Brizzle.
It'll all kick off at The Star on Fishponds Road, a popular haunt with locals and imbibers further afield and a renowned traditional pub with plenty of character and, naturally, an excellent range of ales, a few of which you'll be able to slurp while you're there.
From The Star you'll head on to Cosmic Brewing where the head brewer, Pete, will guide you around his diminutive but impressive brewery (including a few places which are usually off-limits to the average punter) before indulging in several fine libations and leaving with a few surprise goodies.
Last but by no means least will be a short perambulation to Snuffy Jack's, easily one of - if not the THE - best micropubs in the city, where you can enjoy its cosy, buzzy ambiance whilst necking a beverage from its range of carefully selected local ales.
Giving up booze all for the sake of a token gesture resolution? Pah, we think not. And those folk at Bristol Hoppers wholeheartedly agree with us, good fellows.
Tryanuary beer tour starts at 6pm. All the beer consumed is included in the price of the ticket which, seeing as we've now got you interested and you're asking, costs £25 and can be purchased here.
Tryanuary Special Beer Tour starts at The Star (539 Fishponds Road, Fishponds, Bristol, BS16 3AF), moving on to those nectar-quaffing havens Cosmic Brewing and Snuffy Jack's.
