Try Bridge Street Brewery for artisan beers, great meals and live music...

Nestled on the bank of the Baakens River, Bridge Street Brewery is probably one of Port Elizabeth’s finest eateries. With wholesome food, artisan beers, a varied wine selection, live music and relaxed ambiance, BSB as its commonly known as, has grown into a popular place to relax and be with friends.

Its first brew, mashed on January 1st, 2012 marked the birth of Bridge Street Brewery. Under the watchful eye of Lex Mitchell, its family of craft beers have become famous for its great taste, ease of drinking and traditional brewing roots. With names which take you back in time to when beer was first brewed and enjoyed by medieval knights, Celtic Cross Pilsner, Boar’s Head Bitter, Black Dragon Stout and Bowman Cider – Lex’s craft beers has placed Port Elizabeth on the craft beer map.

Artisan beer isn’t the only thing that makes Bridge Street Brewery popular with locals and international visitors to the Bay. Many people come to experience talented musicians who come to entertain the crowds and the homemade pizzas and ‘pub grub’, as well as discover the micro-brewery in all its functional, beauty.

With plenty of seating, a spacious bar, and an attractive sheltered outdoor area, there is a spot for everyone. Whether it’s friends getting together, a business lunch or after-work drinks.

A place that always has a buzz around it, with people, activity and energy, while the service is always happy, efficient and very helpful. Even when the bar’s five deep.

The delicious smell of freshly cooked food wafts from the kitchen through to the bar, making patrons’ stomachs grumble. The menu was designed to compliment its craft beers, but there is something for every craving and palette. For a non-beer-drinker, Bridge Street Brewery remains one of my favourite restaurants, and I have always found its food to be one in Port Elizabeth. Mouth-watering pizzas, tapas, steaks, burgers and so forth, Bridge Street Brewery ensures that guests keep coming back for more.

Few know about its function venue which can accommodate up to 50 guests, and can be as private or inclusive of the brewery as the event demands. Great acoustics, space for large screens and IT requirements makes it a perfect spot for intimate events, presentations and product launches.

All-in-all, Bridge Street Brewery is a great place for families, friends, and colleagues to enjoy its winning-combination of craft beer, tasty food, good service and live music. For more information, contact them on 041 581 0361 or email them at [email protected]
