Create an itinerary including Bristol Brewing Company
In 1994, just as the fledgling craft beer industry was starting to gather steam in Colorado, Mike and Amanda Bristol settled comfortably in the lap of Pikes Peak and started hand-brewing fresh, distinctive ales for the locals in Colorado Springs.

Today, our beers are available on draught and in six packs, four packs, and bombers across the state. And Mike and Amanda have been joined by a cast of characters that make magic happen at Bristol every day. Collectively, we are a family of smart, friendly people who really love beer. We love the glorious flavor. We love the global tradition and history. We love the art and science of brewing. And the pure contentment of enjoying a pint at the end of the day.

In 2013, we moved lock, stock, and barrel into a former elementary school, where we happily ignore school rules by brewing and serving beer in the classrooms, including our onsite pub. Built in 1916, the building’s hardwood floors and brick walls, former gym and student artwork radiate charm and a hip but super-friendly vibe.

  • It's a not miss for the space alone, but the beer is delicious too. We were greeted right away and found a cozy table. The staff was happy, attentive, and knowledgeable. We had a wonderful time!

  • Siri told us this was the closest brewpub to our location…she didn’t tell us it would be the best brewpub we'd visit in Colorado Springs. The location in the Ivywild School is unique. Our servers...

  • Such an amazing and historical place. The beer is fantastic and the food choices are abundant. The variety of food from burgers, to pizza, to BBQ and even salads makes it a place for everyone. The Principals Office provides folk with coffee, wine or cocktails. It's a place you really must check out.
  • Good beer. Nice atmosphere. Slow service tonight but the beer was good. We will try it again.
