"Greetings from the lap of Pikes Peak! Here at Bristol, we sincerely believe that beer builds community. Just look out onto our Pub patio on a sunny day and you’ll see people of every different stripe sharing the moment: great conversation over a well-made beer. On any given day you might notice strangers getting to know each other over a pint and a rousing game of shuffleboard. Then there’s the local who’s relaxing at a table with out-of-town family members, proudly introducing them to the local beer.
Many, many times my husband Mike and I have heard people say that they met and became fast friends because they got to know each other at our brewery. And why not? One of the best ways to enjoy a beer is with other people.
I would submit that one of the more enjoyable ways to exercise is with other people, and running is no exception. With Rocky Mountain Brew Runs bringing beer and running together in a fabulous social event, how does it get more awesome?
This is a great time to be running to Bristol, as we’re marking our 20th birthday this year, as well as our first full year in our new location at Ivywild School. We’re proud to have rescued this noble building and helped to bring it back to life with the sights, sounds, and aromas of the bakery, the delicatessen, art school, bike shop, and of course our brewery and pub. Yep, come on in for a well-deserved beer or two after your run, explore around, and be part of our community.
And be sure to come back August 30-September 6 for our 20th anniversary week of events, including a VW bus rally, bike parade, beer brunch, beer field day, live music, and the release of our Double Decade Saison. It’s going to be an extravaganza!"
