Popped in here twice, while in Bristol. The first time was on a Friday evening. When I arrived, the small basement bar area was packed with nowhere to sit, but after a few hours some tables had freed up. The whole layout is rather constrictive and as you walk in the bar is immediately to your right. Because of this lack of space, it can be a bit difficult to queue up and not get in peoplesí way. Massive bottled selection, with a heavy lean towards Belgians. Draught selection was ok, but there seemed to be a lot of taps not on the first time I went. Food was ok, but pretty expensive for what it was. when I came back the second time, the bar wasnít actually open, but the barman was already there, so he opened up early (which was very nice of him). This was a Monday and there were quite a few more beers on. They do sell thirds, but will tend to only offer them for stronger beers.

Visited on Monday 10th November 2014. In the centre of Bristol, you will find the place on a cellar. Really clear and clean.The place is big enough and clear for a downstair place without windows. The ambiance was calm and cool maybe because of a Monday (notes: there is a discount of 15% on beer tap every Monday). The selection is really nice and good on cask and tap, with great British beers. On fridge you will find also an amazing selection of beer from Europe. I donít know the price but itís a must to try. Really good place.

Great selection, lots of beers on tap and in bottles. Downstairs seating a bit dark, has a few tables outdoor during summer. Bottleshop as well.

as the name says...been twice at dinner time, quiet, good bar guy with good knowledge, great selection, loads and loads of bottles upstairs, beer quality was excellent both times, open till 2 am most days, great for shift workers. Found a craft beer on tap from NZ, superb it was too. Local and worldwide beers on tap, nice place

imdownthepub  (524) Banbury, England | April 8, 2014
The pub itself is in vaulted cellars below the never opened bottle shop, we visited 3 times in the week and it was never once open! There is an almost monastry like atmosphere in the cellar, quiet and reverent. The bar carries a mixture of Cask and Kegged beers with a decent range, although the quality left a little to be desired on our visits. Certainly worth a look but it never became a favourite for us.

As you enter Beer Emporium you are confronted with a small beer shop - compact, but well-appointed. Nothing particularly hard to find, but Orval was only £3, so canít complain! Downstairs is the multi-room cellar bar, broadly like something you might find in Prague or Belgium. There is one very long bar with a wide selection of malty beverages. I think I counted 12 casks and 15 keg on offer. Quite a lot of tasty local options available from the likes of Arbor, BBF and Wiper & True. In addition there is plenty of World-wide craft beer on keg and bottles. Friendly and knowledgable staff. A very nice place indeed.

A fantastic addition to the vibrant Bristol beer scene. Located in an underground vault in Bristol old town, the BBE offers a huge range of beers served up by friendly and knowledgeable-enough staff (enthusiastic, but not beer geeks!). And what a range! Once I saw Thornbridge Kipling on draft I was already sold, but a fine selection of other local and international craft brewers on draft (moor, BBF, Okell, Sierra Nevada, others) and in bottles and cans (Maui, Kernel, loads!) completes the picture. I think Brewdog had better watch out - Bristol has a new beer lovers paradise. Addition 20/12/13: And now they have a bottleshop up top. Stone, Vleteren, Buxton, everyone great. Potential Westvleteren coming as well, which is about as amazing as you can get. Perfect.

Cellar Bar with a great selection of beer from cask and keg, also has a beer menu with a lot of bottled beers mainly from Belgium but with a few from the US and Europe no rare ones but still a good selection, good well prepared food and friendly service
