Cox’s Green, Wrington, Bristol, BS40 5PA
Butcombe Brewery are located south of Bristol in Wrington and were recently joined by Stuart Howe, formerly of Sharp’s Brewery. Their proximity to the city means you’ll see many of their beers in various venues. Their cask beers use isinglass, however all their bottled beers are vegan friendly. The beer is cold conditioned for 2 weeks which removes most of the yeast. It is then filtered through cross flow filters and sterile cartridge filters into bottles, so it never sees any isinglass. Their kegged beer is also vegan friendly for the same reason. It’s worth finding a bottle of their Brunel Atlantic IPA which has a rich, biscuity body with fruity notes from the American hops.
