Bristol Brewing

The Bristol Pub

The Bristol Pub

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.

11am-10pm
Friday-Saturday: 11am-11pm

Winter Hours:
Monday – Thursday, 11am – 10pm;   Friday and Saturday, 11am – 11pm;   Sunday, 11am – 9pm

And Now A Word From The Bristols

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–with a tasty meal to match.

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 food and beer together!
