As part of a new venture, microbrewery Zerodegrees is marketing its own-brewed beers for sale in pubs and restaurants.

This month the business offered connoisseurs of craft beer, as well as outlets looking to stock its products, a chance to taste its range of beers at an event designed to showcase and celebrate Bristol craft beers.

The company’s brands include Zerodegrees Pilsner and Pale Ale, along with speciality beers with ingredients from around the world such as mango beer, which have, until now, primarily been on sale at Zerodegrees itself.

With 35 employees in Bristol and 150 across the UK, the company is expecting to create new jobs in the city and increase its turnover by an estimated £350K by engaging with outlets to stock its award-winning craft beers.

Owner Nick Desai comments: “We are passionate about craft beer and when we set up Zerodegrees, we wanted to give customers an opportunity to learn about the process of brewing great tasting, quality beer.

“This is why we created a microbrewery with all the inner workings of the brewing process on show.

“Since we set up in Bristol 9 years ago, we have seen a movement of customers become far more adventurous in their taste for beer, enjoying the variety, quality and fun that our products offer.

“We have seen our customers’ choices change and develop, as many now consider specialised beers as an alternative to wine with their meal.

“It appeals to both men and women, with women showing an increasing enjoyment for our mango beer, for which we are the only producer in the UK.”
