Wildly Different – Wild Beer at Wapping Wharf


If you’re a beer geek, just the name Wild Beer will get you at least a little excited. And a place where you can drink all the Wild Beer you can handle will probably make you pop. And the thought of Wild Beer, 22 draft beers, and a bucket load of bottles and cans in one place might just make you see stars.



Enter the latest addition to the Wild Beer family in form of their second restaurant; Wild Beer at Wapping Wharf, in the brewery’s spiritual home of Bristol. It’s popped on a corner behind the M-Shed, with a view of the harbour and The Matthew moored in front of the bar. It’s got massive windows for people watching and beer spying whichever side of the glass you’re on.



Right. I said they have 22 draft beers, right? I’ll be honest, I didn’t count the taps because I was so blown away with the selection that I forgot. They had Bibble, Sleeping Lemons Export, Pogo, Wildebeest and so on, from their own barrels and Calypso from Siren Brewing, Milkshake from Wiper and True, The Stooge from Magic Rock… you get the gist. The beer list is pretty blooming fabulous. And that’s just the taps! They have fridges bursting in their seams with bottles and cans of the good stuff – I think I’d lose the ability to walk and form sentences before trying them all.



But they’re not just a watering hole. I mean, I would have been happy with them being “just” a watering hole with a fabulous watering list, but they also serve food. And by the looks of it, the food is amazing. I visited just gone midday on a lazy Sunday afternoon and before one the place was packed. There were tables filled with mates meeting for lunch and families feasting on a Sunday treat. I was there for the beer but you can have a butchers at their menu here.



So yeah. Wild Beer at Wapping Wharf ticks all the boxes for me, not just because it’s packed to high heavens with Wild Beer, but its got some soul. It’s perfect for a chilled beer excursion or luncheon, but it definitely has a buzz about it. The front is a perfect place to enjoy some sun and watch the world go by, and in case weather is not great, the massive windows allow you to ogle the outside world from the comfort of the bar itself. The beer selection is obviously fantastic and from what I’ve gathered, the so’s the food.



If you’re in Bristol and haven’t visited there, you’re totally missing a trick. In fact, if beer is your game it’s worth a visit from further afield too.

    I’m not a big beer fan (actually only beer I have ever almost like was a ginger one so I think it doesn’t count haha). That place look cozy though!

    I don’t drink, but this place still looks like a neat place.

    That’s a whole lot of beer! I would love to try some of it myself. Not that I am an expert on beer, but I would like to try and learn the different flavors.

    We’ve been to Bristol a couple times but we missed this place. There are so many great places in Bristol to see that it’s easy to miss places like this. I like the mural on the wall inside.

  • Robin Rue January 24, 2017 at 6:37 pm

    My husband and I would love to visit a place like this. The atmosphere is certainly cozy.

  • Renee Franklin January 24, 2017 at 6:22 pm

    I’ve never been much of a drinker, but the atmosphere sounds great too. I’ve never been anywhere close to there though yet.

  • Tyler January 24, 2017 at 3:08 pm

    This is a nice place to meet up with friends! You don’t have to be a heavy drinker to enjoy a place like this. I like the fact that they serve food as well.
