Any beer enthusiast worth their salt will know that the Bristol beer scene is where it's at. A vibrant mix of traditional and modern watering holes, serving an eclectic range of local beers from the city’s ever-expanding range of breweries. Many now gaining nationwide recognition.
It's also home to one of the best Craft Beer Festivals in the UK, which will be taking place this year on the Harbourside 30th July - 1st August 2021 - definitely not to be missed.
We are very lucky to work with such talented brewers and offer an array of their brews within our gift boxes. Read on to hear more about our suppliers!
Kicking off with Lost and Grounded. Particularly fascinated by the precision of German brewing and the idiosyncratic nature of Belgian beers, L&G chose the brewhouse of their dreams so they could make these wonders of fermentation for everyone to enjoy!
Another legendary brewery that we are proud to work with is Wiper and True. Operating out of St Werburghs, their beer is some of the best on the market. We stock their iconic Kaleidoscope. Keep your eyes peeled for a massive new brewery and taproom in Easton set to be opening soon!
Their own physical brewery operation began in 2017, before raising more than £1m from the local community via Crowdcube to build the beating heart of our business, a brewpub overlooking the floating harbour in the centre of Bristol, which opened in 2019.
New Bristol Brewery is another rising star. From Citrus soaked session beers, Mango and Coconut IPAs and blow torched brown sugar and coffee infused stouts; NBB are proud to brew modern, award-winning ales that never compromise on freshness or flavour. Check out our NBB collection here - we just love the can designs!
Moving on to the wonderful Arbor Ales. They have been serving Bristolians excellent beers for 10 years, while also steadily gaining recognition much farther afield. They recently teamed up with Breaking Bread to create an exclusive fresh session IPA, read about it here.
And let's not forget about our beloved bottled beer! The award-winning Twisted Oak Brewery is a small but beautifully formed micro-brewery based just outside of Wrington in North Somerset. They use traditional brewing techniques & 100% renewable energy to create both modern craft and traditional brews.
We stock their Leveret which was first brewed back in 2015 in collaboration with The Hare pub in Bedminster (the pub has now gone but the beer is still going strong). This beer delivers tropical fruity notes perfectly balanced with a malty biscuity finish. Recently described as un-faultable!
Check out all of our beer collections on our website - perfect with Father's Day just around the corner! Remember free delivery with all orders over £45.
All that's left to say is in the words of New Bristol Brewery, 'know your brewer, drink local, have fun.’ :-)
