Don't miss The Volunteer Tavern's Easter Beer Festival this weekend!

Posted on: 17 Apr 2019

More than thirty craft beers. Keg takeovers. DJ sets. Sunshine. Kebabs and/or Sunday Roasts. If any of these things float your boat - which we very much suspect they do - then there's nowhere better for you to take yourself this weekend than The Volunteer Tavern, as they host a four-day Easter Beer Festival from Thursday 18th right through until Sunday night!

The Easter Beer Festival at The Volunteer Tavern.

Easter is up there with our favourite times of year at 365Bristol, largely because of the great range of unreal Sunday roasts available around the city but also because of the variety of events that coincide with the holiday.


The Volunteer Tavern's Easter Beer Fest is a standout example of the latter, and this year's the pub is going bigger, better and beer-ier than ever with over 30 craft ales and ciders across two bars, of every different style and variation you can imagine, sourced both locally and from further afield.


Bath beer aficionados Electric Bear Brewing will be on hand with a keg bar in the sunny beer garden, which will, of course, also be home to some top-notch DJ sets setting the tone throughout the weekend. The only thing better than The Volunteer's cosy bar area is their spacious outdoor garden area, so we've got everything crossed that the weather holds out and allows everyone to make the most of it.



Not only will the drinks be flowing but The Volunteer have again invited Hoba Kebab to set up shop at the pub for the entire weekend, giving you the chance to enjoy some quality street food in between pints. Take our word for it, Hoba's authentic, home-cooked Kebabs are banging, but if you're looking for something a bit more authentic when Easter Sunday rolls around, the pub have got you covered as they'll be serving full roast dinners too.




With more than 30 craft beers, an Electric Bear keg tap takeover, two bars, DJ sets, late nights, kebabs, roast dinners, a sunny beer garden and patio, merry bar staff and FREE ENTRY all weekend, there won't be many better places to spend this year's Easter weekend in Bristol than at The Volunteer Tavern - make sure you get involved!
