Wiper & True is Bristol’s newest brewery taproom, and she’s a beauty. A lot of thought has gone into this huge new venue near Old Market, with an accessible bar, braille menus, gender-neutral toilets and lots of sustainable credentials – from solar panels to electric car charging points. Not only can you sample their tasty beers just metres from where they’re brewed, there’s also a great selection of natural wines, locally-made spirits and non-alcoholic tipples.
