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.

ON DRAFT NOW

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 to extract 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?
| ABV 6.1% | 16oz. Pour — $7.00 | 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. 

| ABV 4.3% | 16oz. Pour — $8.00 | 64oz. Growler — $25 | 32oz. Crowler — $15 |

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 |

FLAGSHIP BEER

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 

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 |

Thanks for your support today, and for the last 26 years!

 


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!
