Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

A veritable temple to beer, with more varieties under one roof than anywhere else in Bristol

There are literally hundreds of varieties of beer on offer in the ‘Emp’. Don’t be fooled by the small bottle shop on street level – three vaulted cellars downstairs play host to more beer than anywhere else in Bristol.

An ever-changing selection comes from around the globe, but local breweries – including Wiper & True and Ashley Down, who share premises in St Werburgh’s, and Towles from Easton – are well represented too. Belgian beers are celebrated every Wednesday, with ten percent off and 250 bottles from which to choose.

If any further temptation is needed, there are regular open mic nights and a mean Sunday roast.
