More on Bristol Brewing Company




In 1994, Mike and Amanda Bristol settled comfortably in the lap of Pikes Peak and began brewing flavorful, one-of-a-kind beers for the people of Colorado Springs. Today, Bristol Brewing is still family-owned and available only in Colorado in six packs, four packs, and on draught. From multi-award winning flagship beers like Laughing Lab Scottish Ale, to our Forgotten Genius Series, to our large stable of specialty beers and seasonals, the quality and flavor of the beer drive everything at Bristol. And with over two decades of brewing expertise behind us, we continue to explore and innovate. Our spirited attention to detail in the brewhouse, together with a respect for the heritage of the craft and a genuine love of beer make Bristol a purveyor of truly fine ales and lagers.



We make our home inside Ivywild School, an historic former elementary school that was built in 1916 and transformed into a community marketplace and local gathering spot. Located at the north end of the school’s charming, art-filled hallway, we welcome locals and travelers alike to relax with a pint of fresh Bristol beer straight from the brewery taps in the Bristol Pub. The pub offers a friendly, laid back vibe overlooking the brewhouse and fermentation room, with a classic shuffleboard table, a large, sunny patio, and a tasty menu paired with our beers.
