A pop-up version of Bristol craft beer bar Beerd has been opened by brewer Bath Ales in the heart of the city’s Clifton Village.
Based in the former Havana Café site in Clifton Down Road, the bar will be open for eight weeks until September and offer a wide range of different styles of Beerd beers.
Robin Couling, managing director of Bath Ales, said: “We had to move quickly to get this pop-up ready and we’re excited to do something different.
“Beerd is extremely popular in Bristol and really making a name for itself. This is a great opportunity to showcase the variety of different styles of craft beer which Beerd brewery has to offer and we think it will appeal to the people of Clifton.”
Bath Ales opened Beerd (pictured) in St Michael’s Hill, Cotham, Bristol, in January 2012 – a mile away from the new pop-up.
The pop-up is part of a wider project organised by THAT group property business, with nearby units set to be occupied by an art gallery, Jika Jika café and a bike shop.
Beerd head brewer Shane O’Beirne said: “The Beerd pop-up is about being able to offer a wide range of quality beer complemented by simple, delicious food. They’ve been going down a storm so far, so it’s great to have a further chance to let people try them.”
The Beerd beers on tap include Convict (Australian Pale Ale), Monterey (Californian Pale Ale), Razor (Indian Pale Ale), Vigilante (American Pale Ale) and Scoundrel (Scotch Ale) and a new bottled Beerd beer called Silvertip (New Zealand Pale Ale). There is also a menu with a choice of pizzas.
Along with the refurbished interior, the pop-up has an outside seating and dining space, providing seating for up to 50 covers. It is open Monday to Friday from 4pm to 11pm and Saturday and Sunday from midday to 11pm.
