Head Brewer: Chris Hastings

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.


About Bristol Brewing Company

1604 S Cascade Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80905

It is by design that Bristol’s award-winning beers remain available only in Colorado. We believe in local breweries and in their ability to build community. We enjoy being able to focus on serving the people who live, work, and play side by side with us in our home state. Supporting our community is simply part of our DNA. In fact, our Community Ales program alone generates hundreds of thousands of dollars for worthy causes within our community annually.
