Butcombe Brewery was established in 1978, the same year as the Bristol Balloon Fiesta…hence the Balloons at Sunset on Butcombe Gold. In 2003 the business was sold to Guy Newell and Paul Horsley, and moved to an industrial estate at Wrington, to be housed in a purpose-built brewery completed in March 2005; in the same year the brewery set up a joint venture with Thatcher’s, the Long Ashton Cider Company, producing a keg cider. In 2008 production was 24,000 barrels a year and direct outlet numbers were about 450.
