In 1994, Mike and Amanda Bristol settled comfortably in the lap of Pikes Peak and began brewing fresh, distinctive ales for the people of Colorado. Today, our award winning beers are available on draught and in six packs and four packs across the state. From multi-award winning Laughing Lab Scottish Ale to a slew of specialty beers and seasonals, the quality and flavor of the beer drive everything at Bristol.
Well-known for our community involvement, our Community Ales program generates tens of thousands of dollars for worthy local causes annually. In 2013 we revitalized a Colorado Springs neighborhood by turning a cool, old elementary school into a lively community gathering spot. It’s called Ivywild School, and that is where we hang our hats. Come by for a tour of the brewery, and stay for a pint and a bite in our warm and friendly classroom-turned-Pub. We’d be thrilled to show you where it all happens.
