Fantastic selection of award winning microbrewed beers on tap in a pub that has won a National Pub Design Award based in the very heart of Bristol. My first encounter of Zero Degrees was on a stag party last weekend. I was blown away and so were my friends. Between us we tried pints and pints (and then jugs) of the Pilsner, Pale Ale and Wheat Beer, each of which was unique, very tasty and drinkable in a stag situation, no easy task! My personal favourite is the Zerodegrees Pale Ale, the Pilsner was good but a little standard and the Wheat Beer was truly unique. It’s blend of traditional banana and vanilla tastes had an extra nutty taste to it that I rather liked but had not encountered before. Add to this some good but not exceptional pub grub, mainly Pizza covering most topping you can think of, Mussels, Pasta and other European staples. It was a great evening out and looked fantastic, however, it does seem to close a little early at 12am although this was great for us as it meant time to move on to an afterhours club/bar to continue the night. I would thoroughly recommend Zero Degrees to anyone in Bristol.

ZERODEGREES will brew its own beers on site in large steel vats and serve up a mouthwatering menu of European favourites to wash it down with. This is no ordinary build. Architects have had to come up with a design that’s sympathetic to the surroundings (the historic Christmas Steps edge the site) and which incorporates the mechanics of the brewery. The resulting space is functional and futuristic as the shiny steel vats and connecting pipelines form the skeleton to a light and airy interior to be enjoyed by drinkers and diners any time, day or night.”

ZERODEGREES Pilsner 4.8%
Continental style golden lager, unfiltered to retain freshness. The pleasing malt character is balanced by 100% czech Saaz – highly prized for their delicate bitterness and fresh lime-fruit flavour.”

Copper coloured ale, similar to an English bitter, but in the style adapted by the craft-brewers of the U.S. west coast. Rich malt flavours combine with distinctive floral and fruity flavours (peach and grapefruit) from American cascade and centennial hops.”

ZERODEGREES Wheat Ale 4.2%
Often pale, traditionally cloudy, always refreshing and easy-drinking. Brewed in various styles – including the quenching American wheat ale, the vanilla and banana flavoured German hefe-weizen, or the orange and spicy Belgian witbier.”
