Bristol Beer Factory

Bristol Beer Factory

‘A Taste of Independence'

The Building we have all our fun in is actually an old fermenting block that was built in 1904 for the Ashton Gate Brewery. In 2004, Bristol Brewing Co Ltd moved in and set up 10 barrel micro brewery called the Bristol Beer Factory in the basement of the fermenting block. 

Our fantastic range of bottled beers has something for everyone. Whether you are a traditional best bitter man, a hop head or consider yourself a Belgian style connoisseur we'll have something for you.

Our cask conditioned ales are made in the traditional way of primary and secondary fermentation. This means the yeast is still alive and working in the cask, so the beer isn't filtered, it's not pasteurised and it's not artificially carbonated.

Pullins Bakers

Pullins Bakers

Four generations of baking

Our Great Grandfather Thomas George Pullin was a farmer.  That is, until the Autumn of 1925 when he kicked off his welly boots for the last time and opened a bakery in Somerset.  Four generations later, we're still here.  Our bread, cakes and sandwiches are made fresh daily and delivered from our bakery just a few miles away.  Keep an eye out for our award winning artisan range of breads, including our two star Great Taste winning Rye Sourdough.

Chew Moos

Chew Moos

Chew Moo’s ice cream company is based on our small dairy farm that has been run by the family for over80 years.  

We are situated on top of Dundry Hill near Bristol.  Due to reduced milk prices we decided to diversify into Ice cream production, and Chew moo’s was born 3 years ago. We decided to create tasty ice cream using the premium channel island milk and cream produced from our small herd of pedigree Guernsey cows.

Our ice cream and fruit ices are handmade in small batches using the finest ingredients, with only natural flavourings. When in season we hand pick our own strawberries and raspberries from within the Chew valley.

Thatchers

Thatchers

We’ve been making cider for over 100 years and the world around us has changed quite a bit.

With some things we’ve moved with the times, and with others we’ve stuck to what we know to be right. Like recipes and ingredients that have been with us since 1904, or our oak vats that make our cider so distinctive.

These decisions aren’t always easy, a farm and the family who run it are linked by more than just a farmhouse.

Decisions that are made echo down the generations, like how William Thatcher's decision to start making cider over 100 years ago has shaped everything that has happened on the farm since.
