RATING: 3.88

IN 2014, A MAN NAMED RICH POOLE WALKED INTO SMALL BAR, BRISTOL, AND HANDED SOME BEER OVER TO BRUCE GRAY AND JACK GRANGER. THIS BEGAN A BREWING JOURNEY THAT STARTED ON A 200L KIT THROUGH THE BACK OF THAT SAME BAR, BEFORE DEVELOPING INTO A CUCKOO BREWERY OPERATION KNOWN AS LEFT HANDED GIANT.

OUR OWN PHYSICAL BREWERY OPERATION BEGAN IN 2017, BEFORE RAISING MORE THAN £1M FROM THE LOCAL COMMUNITY VIA CROWDCUBE TO BUILD THE BEATING HEART OF OUR BUSINESS, A BREWPUB OVERLOOKING THE FLOATING HARBOUR IN THE CENTRE OF BRISTOL, WHICH OPENED IN 2019. WE NOW OPERATE OVER 2 BREWING SITES, PRODUCING AROUND 4000 HL OF BEER ANNUALLY, SOLD THROUGH INDEPENDENT PUBS, BARS AND BOTTLE SHOPS WITH THE MAJORITY STRAIGHT TO TAP THROUGH OUR FINZELS REACH BREWPUB, OUR ST PHILIPS TAP ROOM AND STILL, FROM WHERE IT ALL BEGAN AT SMALL BAR. 

WE ARE COMMUNITY OWNED, AND AIM TO EXECUTE AN EMPLOYEE BUY-OUT WITHIN THE NEXT 3 YEARS, MAKING US ONE OF THE ONLY UK EMPLOYEE-OWNED BREWERIES. INDEPENDENCE AND THE FREEDOM TO EXPRESS OUR CREATIVITY IS CENTRAL TO OUR BUSINESS, AND WE BELIEVE THAT GIVING OUR TEAM OWNERSHIP AND LEADERSHIP OF OUR COMPANY IS CRUCIAL TO ENSURING THIS REMAINS THE CASE THROUGHOUT OUR BREWERIES’ LONG LIFETIME. 

We don’t have any products to show here right now.
