A new beer is created for the festival


What do you get when you mix four Bristol craft breweries, 75 huge cans of mango puree, 12 broken tin-openers and a box full of goodies from Harts Bakery? A lip-smacking, brand-spanking, festival-ready new beer, that’s what you get!


In the run-up to the 2019 Bristol Craft Beer Festival, the good guys over at Left Handed Giant, Wiper & True, Good Chemistry and New Bristol Brewery gathered at the St. Phillips Brewhouse to concoct an ambitious new brew and the people of Bristol have named it..!


It’s now become a tradition to have a collaborative brew in the run-up to Bristol Craft Beer Festival, but this is the first time the naming process has been opened to the public. The new festival beer was named;


Alphonso The Passionate Man-Goose


The beer in question is a gooseberry, mango and passion fruit sour IPA with a light touch of hops and a sprinkling of lactose to give it a sweet finish and plenty of juicy body.
