About Bristol Beer Factory

BBC Food & Farming Award winners, Bristol Beer Factory started life in 2004 brewing just a few standard cask conditioned ales in a vibrant part of South Bristol. Realising there is so much more to brewing and so many more styles of beer, their range has now developed into over eight different regular bottled ales, seven regular cask ales and up to five specials throughout the year.

Their enviable national award-winning core range includes Independence, Milk Stout and Southville Hop, they have also recently launched the Brewery Taproom on North Street, The Beer Club and their new 4% session ale, Fortitude. Fourteen years on, they are still fiercely independent and focused on producing great beer.

In 2017 Bristol Beer Factory appointed new investors Guy and Becky Newell and Josh Eggleton as Non – Executive Directors.
