CURRENT LIMITED EDITION BEERS

Fresh Hop Pale Ale

On the vine one day, picked, shipped, and in the brew within hours–that’s the magic of our Fresh Hop Pale Ale. In collaboration with Metric Brewing Co., we flash-freezed fresh, whole-cone Strata hops and shattered them by hand to release all the lush dankness. Then we dry-hopped with these in the brite tank for a luscious feast of fresh hoppiness. Or is it happiness?

| 4.8% ABV | 12oz. Pour — $6.00 | 16oz. Pour — $8.00 | 64oz. Growler — $20 |32oz. Crowler — $15 |

Red Baron Octoberfest (Available to go in six packs only)

A hardy beer befitting the celebration and the man it commemorates, Red Baron Octoberfest is a dark lager brewed in the traditional Vienna style. Vienna and Munich malts give our Octoberfest a toasty, dry flavor and ruddy color that warm the heart when the leaves begin to fall.

| 5.3% ABV |

Hazy IPA(Temporarily sold out–sorry!)

Brewed with a combo of Strata, Mosaic, and El Dorado hops, our hazy gives you tons of dank juiciness without a lot of bitterness, and a citrusy aroma to boot.

| 6.3% ABV | 12oz. Pour — $6.00 | 16oz. Pour — $8.00 | 64oz. Growler — $20 |32oz. Crowler — $15 |

Barrel Aged Old No. 23 (Temporarily Sold Out–sorry!)

Barley Wine is high in alcohol, so it can easily withstand a year in a barrel and the flavors will continue to deepen. So we aged some of our Old No. 23 in barrels for a year, which gave it whiskey flavors, smokiness, and dark fruit undertones. In fact, we think barrel aging complements all the best parts of our Old No. 23 barley wine.

| 10.5% ABV | 12oz. Pour — $7.50 |64oz. Growler — $34 | 32oz. Crowler — $15 |

FLAGSHIP BEERS

Laughing Lab Scottish Ale

Laughing Lab is our most popular brew among beer drinkers and beer judges alike, with nine medals since 1994 at the GABF® alone. A complex blend of specialty malts provides a nutty, roasted flavor that’s mildly sweet, but not too rich. Smooth and luscious! 

| 5.4% ABV | 16oz. Pour — $6.00 | 64oz. Growler — $11 |32oz. Crowler — $9 |

Red Rocket Pale Ale 

The Bristol beer that started it all back in 1994 is lively and hoppy right up front, with a crisp finish–and just enough malt character to provide balance in between. Rocket’s hop character comes from a blend of Perle, Willamette, and Cascade hops. Dry hopped with Cascade for a delectable aroma. An award winner.

| 5.1% ABV | 16oz. Pour — $6.00 | 64oz. Growler — $11 |32oz. Crowler — $9 |

Beehive Honey Wheat 

Definitely sunshine in a glass.  Beehive is a joy to drink, with its beautiful honey-gold color and refreshing, full-flavored body.  For our version of the classic American wheat, we use less two-row and more Munich malt for depth, and soften the edges with the lightness of wheat.  Local Black Forest honey adds character without sweetness.

| 4.4% ABV | 16oz. Pour — $6.00 | 64oz. Growler — $11 |32oz. Crowler — $9 |

Mass Transit Amber Ale  (Temporarily Sold Out–sorry!)

Like the bus on its label, Mass Transit has a mellow vibe and a fiercely loyal following of fans. Based on the amber style, this is a dependable session beer that simply delivers superb flavor. Crystal and Vienna specialty malts give Mass its rich auburn color and easygoing nature.

| 4.7% ABV | 16oz. Pour — $6.00 | 64oz. Growler — $11 |32oz. Crowler — $9 |

Compass IPA 

This is an ale with zip. Our india pale ale brings together copious amounts of Columbus and Cascade hops in a tasty combination that lingers through the finish and beyond. Compass delivers big hop flavor with malt in a nice supporting role. A favorite with the regulars in our pub.

| 6.9% ABV | 16oz. Pour — $6.00 | 64oz. Growler — $11 |32oz. Crowler — $9 |

Ivywild School Pale Ale

Despite the splash of bright tangerine and grapefruit that hits you at first sip, no fruit were harmed in the making of this beer. In fact, our tropical pale ale’s lush aroma and flavor is purely derived from the abundance of fruit-forward hop varieties we added late in the brewing process. Not a lot from the malt department here, just another juicy day in hop paradise.

| 6.9% ABV | 16oz. Pour — $6.00 | 64oz. Growler — $11 |32oz. Crowler — $9 |

World Peace Death Ray Imperial IPA

We’re not big fans of the palate-crushing hop and alcohol levels found in many Imperial IPAs, so we set out to brew a tasty treat for the hop loyal that embodies just a bit more finesse. Checking in at a relatively friendly ABV, our Imperial is citrusy, pungent and robust, combining a goodly abundance of hops with a malt bill that provides the backbone your trusty palate craves.

| 8.0% ABV | 12oz. Pour — $7.50 | 64oz. Growler — $20 | 32oz. Crowler — $15 |

Mango Pirate Golden Sour

To craft this beer, our brewers brought together wheat and barley, mango puree–and of course, a carefully selected strain of lactobacillus to do the heavy lifting. The result is a simple, clean sour, light-bodied and refreshing, beautifully cloudy, with a tart finish and just a subtle hint of the tropical. 

| 4.3% ABV | 12oz. Pour — $8.00 | 64oz. Growler — $25 | 32oz. Crowler — $15 |

BELGIAN BOTTLES

Belgian Saison

This refreshing saison is a slight departure from our more traditional Belgians. Still brewed with a blend of farmhouse and saison yeasts for that hint of spice and touch of mild fruit, but with Nelson Sauvin and Mosaic hops for a little more kick. Bottle conditioning adds complexity. Gezondheid!

| 750ml –$13.99|

Belgian Dubbel

Meet our Belgian Dubbel:  A frothy marriage of deep, caramelized richness, fruity undertones, and the lush complexity that bottle conditioning brings. Gezondheid!

| 750ml –$13.99|

Belgian Quadrupel

It’s time to put on your big kid pants and enjoy one of life’s rich treats: our big and luscious Belgian-style strong ale. As you sip you’ll note wonderful hints of plum and other dark fruit; perhaps a touch of dark rum and molasses. Despite its malty complexity, this deep amber beauty is medium-bodied, mellow, and smooth, which tends to distract a person from its profound ABV of 9.3%. Gezondheid!

| 750ml –$13.99|

About the Bristol Pub

We make our home inside Ivywild School, an historic former elementary school that was built in 1916 and transformed into a local gathering spot with great food and drinks in 2013. 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 seasonal beer garden.

We absolutely love beer. That’s why we’ve been brewing and drinking it in Colorado Springs since 1994. We opened the Bristol Pub in 2013 because we wanted to create a place with a laid back, community vibe that would make people want to get off the couch and gather with friends to enjoy good conversation over a pint of Bristol and a bite to eat.

We’re glad you’re here, so hang out with us, talk with your friends, make some new ones. Let’s all share some great beer together!
