Bristol Beer Factory Beers, like Bristol itself, seamlessly blends the modern and historical. Tried and trusted styles of beer with modern interpretations, brewed in a hundred year old brewery building that harks back to an industrial age gone by, drunk in the modern surroundings of Bristol's bars and pubs.
We have won one of the UK’s top food and drink awards, recognising not just our beers but our role in regenerating the area. Our award is for the ‘Best Drinks Producer’ in the BBC Food and Farming Awards, the ‘Oscars’ of the industry.
Bristol Beer Factory won the Society of Independent Brewers’ (SIBA)
Supreme Champion Awards for bottled beer at this year’s SIBA conference
Bristol Beer Factory’s Southville Hop, a 6.5% heavily hopped beer, struck gold in the Champion Strong Bottled Beer category.
SIBA chief executive Julian Grocock, said: “Those of us who have been
involved in this round of SIBA beer competitions have once again been
overwhelmed by the quality of the beers entered at every stage from
regional heat to national finals.
“With standards rising every year, it becomes ever more challenging to
select the best beers from a very strong field. Winning an award at a
regional competition is an achievement to be proud of and to take one at
the national competition an even greater one.”
For the first time this year, Punch Taverns is offering to showcase the
overall gold, silver and bronze cask competition winners through its
finest cask guest ale scheme, which is made available to 1,000 of its
pubs. The listing will run during May and June, taking in the Euro 2012
and Diamond Jubilee trading periods.
The award was presented at a ceremony last year and the brewery was
included in a special awards programme aired on BBC Radio Four on 25th
