Bristol Beer Festival 2017


Its just over a week until Bristol CAMRA’s beer festival kick offs and with over 130 beers to try we cant wait! A great day for both newbies and veterans of the festival, this year will be accompanied by an app available on both android and apple smart phones. Covering every available drink at the festival in great detail, you can download today and browse the beers you wish to try. Also incorporated into the app is a rating system and will reveal the crowd favorite beers from over the weekend. Don’t forget to rate the beers you loved!

Taking place in Brunel’s Old Station (part of Temple Meads Station) means getting to and from the festival is hassle free. And, being right in the heart of Bristol, means heading off to one of the cities many craft ale bars is even easier.

Falling within the Bristol CAMRA constituency we take great pride in the festival. This year we are taking along three of our ales: our flagship beer ‘Pitchfork’ (4.3%), the new hit ‘Goldbine’ (3.8%) and a twist on an old favorite ‘Coffee Slug Porter’ (4.5%). You can try all these at the LocALE bar and all three will be in with a chance of winning the prestigious ‘Local Ale Beer of the Festival’. We can drink to that!

Beer on it’s travels!

We had a super busy month throughout September as we were almost flat out brewing to supply some of the rather delicious “Return from the Ashes” beer to Wetherspoons for their winter real ale festival.

The festival kicked off just a week ago and so far we’ve seen our Twitter feed and Facebook timeline light up with great reports on the beer from all over the country! So far “Return from the Ashes” has been enjoyed by discerning drinkers in Glasgow, Carlisle, Llanelli, New Malden, Taunton, Poole, Southend-on-Sea, Rochdale, Nottingham, Rugely, Southgate and Sutton!

We only deliver directly ourselves to within about a 100 mile radius of the brewery and now, thanks to JD Wetherspoon, drinkers from much further afield are getting the opportunity to enjoy our beer! It’s great to know that fellow beer lovers are getting acquainted with our brews regardless of their location, our beer has no (geographic) boundaries!

If you’ve popped in to a Wetherspoon’s and sampled “Return from the Ashes”, drop us a line and let us know, we’d love to know where it travelled to and what you think of it!

Champion Beer of Britain – Double Finalists!

We’ve had to keep quiet about this – which can be difficult when you love what you do as much as we do – but now we can reveal that we were DOUBLE finalists in the CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain Awards!

Yep, our Hewish Mild and Pitchfork were both in the national finals for their categories (Mild and Golden respectively). CAMRA rules prevent us from revealing that before the Great British Beer Festival but as it’s now in full swing we can finally let you in on it.

Tuesday was the trade day at the festival and we all jumped on to various trains to make our way over to London to find out if were going to get some more GBBF glory like some of the past years. You could feel the tension as the announcements were made but alas, neither Pitchfork or Hewish Mild won their category but for us to have two beers in the national finals was indeed a great achievement and we’re super proud of that!

Here’s to next year!
