ORIGINAL REVIEW November 2014
A very thorough review from Blackthorn doesn't need much from me,you enter into a bottle shop with produce neatly stacked behind a counter,so proceed down the flight of stairs to find the pub.The brickwork down there has been expertly cleaned ,the lighting was clever and the open plan kitchen on view gave a modern feel to the place.It was quiet on our Friday afternoon visit,yet i did wonder how the acoustics would change with a big crowd in.Clearly committed to offering a wide range of real ale ,there were 12 handpumps (not all working) offering Mallinson's Baton Rouge and US MILD (pretty good ),Five Sisters Red Ale,Butcombe Haka,Durham Black Velvet and Milestone Hoptimus while there were intersting keg options from 8 taps.This was only a short crawl visit but I would most definitely call in again to see what this GBG listed pub had on offer.

UPDATE
A revisit was rewarded by an outstanding range of real ale from some leading microbrewers and my Blue Monkey 99 Red Baboons was spot on.On a busy Thursday evening after an England football group stage victory (rare event !),the bar was an oasis of calm and it would have been very tempting to sample a lot of their wares.An upgrade from me,this might well be route 1 next time I'm on King Street.

Another of Bristol's well reviewed finest on King Street.
The Beer Emporium is a calming cellar bar with friendly, attentive and knowledgeable bar staff. It felt slightly odd to be drinking beer here rather than eating jamon and drinking fino but that was soon forgotten as the fine beer selection was chosen from.
Beers on were: Flint Knapper Ramsbury, Bad Co. Comfortably Numb, Brass Castle Oatmeal Pale, Boss Brave Adventurous American IPA, Bristol Beer Factory Junga, Electric Bear Bear Wit Me, Siren Vermont Tea Party, Tyne Bank Dark Brown Ale, Beowulf Gold Work, Totally Brewed Slap in the Face, XT XPA and Blue Monkey 99 Red Baboons. A great selection of beers from quality brewers and all that we had in good shape.
Less lively than some of King Street's other establishments but the best beer selection that I saw in Bristol on our visit.

Really enjoyed a couple of visits to the 2016 Good Beer Guide cellar bar with a lift access for disabled going down from the bottle shop. There is a great range of real ales and keg available, and we enjoyed beers from Captain Cook, Untapped, Ashley Down and Truefitt on the first visit, and a couple of days later another Captain Cook, Grey Trees, Mumbles and Abbeydale.
