Brewing since 2004, Bristol Beer Factory is a renowned local brewer and a true pioneer of the Bristol beer scene. With its big hop flavours and low bitterness, Independence (a US Style Pale Ale) is without a doubt one of its most loved beers – perfect for fans of traditional ale or craft beer fanatics. For the real pub experience at home, we recommend trying Independence in a mini tin – 8.5 pints of pure Bristolian bliss.

It might be a newcomer to the Bristol beer scene (after launching late 2020), but Newtown Park has already cemented itself as a visionary with an incredible selection of contemporary pale ales and punchy stouts. Its Kinjo Japanese Lager is one of the latest creations to leave the brewery, made in collaboration with street food traders Eatchu.
