​​Bristol Beer Factory to move out of Victorian brewery to modern site

Bristol Beer Factory (BBF) is preparing to stop brewing at its Victorian brewery site in favour of moving to a new location.

The iconic brewery, which has been located in the heart of South Bristol was founded in 2004 and will be moving 1km away to a modern and sustainable production facility.

BBF managing director Sam Burrows said: “The brewery will maintain its commitment to crafting unique beers for independent pubs, supporting local venues, and contributing to community causes such as mental fitness charity Talk Club through initiatives like Clear Head, Bristol’s favourite Alcohol-Free beer.”

Burrows explained that the new site would assist in “stepping up brewing capacity”.

Speaking about the decision to leave the brewery’s original site, BBF head of sales Tom Clermont said: “The move to a modern site gives the brewery space to breathe and aids our ongoing commitment to being one of the best, most sustainable businesses in Bristol and in the UK.”
