Beer on tap at new micro brewery

Bored of your usual tipple? Then you may like to try a new place to enjoy a pint and a bite to eat as Zerodegrees opens mid July.

Anyone walking along Perry Road over the past year will have noticed the design taking place with its 200-seat restaurant and 150-capacity bar.

Mango beer is going down a treat with drinkers in London

The London-based micro brewery has chosen Bristol as the first city outside the capital to set up in.

Customers will sit amid the large steel vats used during the brewing process with the scent of malt, wheat, hops and yeast to tickle the tastebuds.

Special seasonal beers will be also produced such as the current Mango beer, which is popular with the London crowd.

"By not filtering, pasteurising, adding additives or colour, our beers are healthier and fresher, with flavours that have already earned the original Blackheath brewery several prestigious awards in the London Brewers Cup - Best Lager, Best Pale Ale and, best of all, Champion Ale of London," said a spokesman for Zerodegrees in Bristol.

To give the beer something to wash down, a range of European dishes will be on the menu offering everything from speciality sausages to gourmet pizzas made in a wood-fired oven.

The Beers:

PILSNER 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.

PALE ALE 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.

WHEAT ALE 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.

BLACK LAGER A deep, dark Czech-style lager. Roasted and caramelised malts give chocolate and coffee flavours and a lasting cappuccino-style collar of foam.

Zerodegrees opens on July 16.
