Founded in Colorado Springs in 1994 by Mike and Amanda Bristol, Bristol Brewing Company brews fresh, distinctive beers for the people of Colorado.
From multi-award winning Laughing Lab Scottish Ale to favorites Compass IPA and Beehive Honey Wheat, to a slew of year ‘round, seasonal, and specialty beers, the quality and flavor of the beer drives everything at Bristol. While production in 2012 exceeded 10,000 barrels, their expansion to Ivywild School included the installation of a state-of-the-art brewing system custom made in the Bavaria region of Germany, which doubled capacity to meet demand.
Well-known for their community involvement, Bristol’s Community Ales program generates tens of thousands of dollars for worthy local causes annually, and the relocation to Ivywild School has helped to revitalize the neighborhood. Bristol beers are always available at their warm and friendly on-site pub, as well as on tap and in six packs in locations across the state.
