why we love Strawberry Thief

The Strawberry Thief is Bristol’s only dedicated Belgian beer bar, tucked away on Broad Street in the old city, amongst some of Bristol’s most outstanding buildings. It doesn’t do waffles or have lace in the window, but it certainly has a whiff of the back streets of Bruges or Brussels.           

We love Strawberry Thief because it offers something different to Bristol beer drinkers. A comfortable continental café that doesn’t try too hard to conform to the modern craft beer guidelines of exposed brick, low wattage filament lights and concrete. An essential stop off on any Bristol beer tour. 


Bristol Beer Week brings together our kind of people, those looking to discover new beers in great venues around the city. This year we are especially excited as we take our place alongside the great and the good of the Bristol beer scene. We’ve got our first big beer and food pairing event, and can’t wait to greet new and familiar faces.
