Welcome to Brewhouse & Kitchen – Bristol
We’re a bit different from your traditional British pub. We brew our own amazing craftbeers right here in the pub itself – you can even watch our Head Brewer working his magic at the micro-brewery!
We love great beer, good food and exceptional wine – browse through our interesting range of bottled beers, cider and wines from around the world
Whether you’re looking to pop in for a quick lunch, after-work drink or celebrating with friends, you can be sure to be looked after by our friendly, knowledgeable team
Animator – just like the award-winning, collective talent of local firm Aardman Animations, whose animators have engaged audiences with their unique brand of independent film, with the likes of Peter Gabriel’s ground-breaking ‘Sledgehammer’ and Wallace and Gromit films, we too hope this hoppy American Pale Ale will engage your taste buds and leave you wanting more.
Nut Brown Ale
Big W – it could pertain to the famous Wills Memorial Tower, the last great Gothic building to be constructed in England, colloquially named ‘Big Willy’, or it could be just be the name for our Head Brewer’s autumnal ‘Wicked’ Nut Brown Ale – it’s full-bodied and malty & sweet on the palate!
Charlatan – inspired by the sheer creativity of the beautiful young lady who in 1817 was bored of her mundane life of servitude (one would assume) and in craving a bit of excitement and fame, ‘washed herself up’ on the shores of Bristol after fleeing her pirate captors, where, speaking an incomprehensible language and wearing exotic clothes, was in time, understood to be Princess Caraboo of the far-off Kingdom of Jusava! Her notoriety however lead to her charlatan ways being exposed, when a previous employer recognised her as Mary Baker, a cobbler’s daughter from Devon! In honour of Mary enjoy a pint of this fruity and spicy Saison.
Crockers – what better way to celebrate the provenance of this public house by naming our house bitter after the founding fathers of Crockers and Sons Brewery and Wine Merchants, on this very site in 1840.
Deception – our Rye IPA beer was inspired by Derren Brown who, whilst studying German and Law at Bristol University was so enthralled by the magnificent performance of the hypnotist Martin S Taylor, that he decided there and then, that was his calling in life, and his very first shows were at the university.
Hornigold – as mentor to Bristol’s most notorious historical son ‘Blackbeard’ the pairing had a penchant for seizing ships which carried cargos of spirits, wines and other delectables, and not as you might think, in the grey, cold waters off the coast of Benjamin Hornigold’s home county of Norfolk, but they chose to ‘operate’ their craft of piracy in the sunnier, warmer climes of the Caribbean! Enjoy a pint of our memorable Blonde ale and toast their notoriety
MarTacadam – quirky tribute to 1802 resident John McAdam, whose ideas saw Bristol make the greatest advances in road construction since Roman times, providing smooth, stable, dust-free roads, (the principles of which we are still using today) commonly known as “macadamisation”. It felt fitting to brew a smooth, dark Porter – and not just because it was the favoured brew of British Transportation workers, but because it is said that a Porter was the first truly engineered beer!
Papa Darth – our full-bodied, dark and brooding Stout is a fitting tribute to Bristol born, body-builder come actor, Dave Prowse, who struck a mighty pose as the intimidating physical presence of the dark father ‘Darth Vader’ in the Star Wars films trilogy.
Fruit Wheat Beer
Ribeera – in tribute to one of Britain’s most popular drinks, namely Ribena, invented here in Bristol after sources of Vitamin C dwindled during World War II and researchers found blackcurrants to be a great alternative to oranges, it felt only fitting to name our big, berry fruit Wheat beer, in its honour!
Yankee Cabot –in tribute to John (Giovanni Caboto) Cabot, the Italian explorer who adopted Bristol as his home town, after receiving backing by King HenryVII to find a direct route to Asia which avoided the waters of the Mediterranean is recognised as discovering North America, naming it ‘New Found Land’, we have created this American IPA.
Ameryck – there are many connections between Bristol and American history and to celebrate the hypothesis that America was in fact named after 15th century local merchant, Richard Ameryck, who funded John Cabot’s voyage of discovery in 1497, we have named our American Red ale in his honour – just waiting to be discovered by the thirsty and intrepid!
American Pale Ale
Enjoy a pint of this citrusy, Pale Ale with truck loads of piney, grapefruity American hops and raise a refreshing glass to Bristol-born trio, ‘Massive Attack’ who since their formation in ’88, have sold over 11 million albums, including their 1998 No. 1 hit single, ‘Teardrop’ and won many other awards along the way.
