We are an Assured independent British craft brewer registered with SIBA
Bluestone Brewing is an exciting, eco-friendly family run brewery situated in the foothills of the Preseli Hills in North Pembrokeshire. We produce hand crafted real ales, using local water filtered down through the Bluestone Hills to produce a range of flavoursome Rock Solid Ales.
Our ten barrel brewery lives in the front yard of Tyriet Farm, which is still a working farm to this day. Before the buildings were converted for the brewery, they were used as a dairy and stables. And just 5 months prior to opening our doors as a brewery; newborn lambs and calves were being reared in them!
The name Bluestone Brewing Company comes from the local stone that the buildings were built from many years ago. Bluestone is also pretty famous for being mysteriously transported over 250 miles to become Stonehenge over 5000 years ago!
The water we use for brewing our Rock Solid Ales is unique to Bluestone. Our water filters down the Preseli Mountains and collects in a well on our land. And because the spring water is so natural and crystal clear, it goes straight from the well into our beers, with no filtering or added chemicals. Find out what makes our ales so awesome!
In 2018, we were very fortunate to receive funding from The Coastal Communities fund and we installed our very own bottling plant on-site. We’re now able to keep all of our production on site, reducing our carbon footprint and providing a job in the local area. The Coastal Communities Fund is funded by the Government with income from the Crown Estate’s marine assets. It is delivered by the Big Lottery Fund on behalf of UK Government and the Devolved Administrations in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
We take pride in the fact that our brewery is incredibly environmentally conscious. Being situated on a working farm, we reuse all the bi-products from our Ales and feed them back to our animals. And by using water from our very own well and generating our own solar power, we are proud to be a green brewery! In 2018, we were the first brewery in the world to be given the Green Key Accreditation, an international award that recognises environmentally sustainable businesses.
What started as a small diversity project has quickly grown into something really special! We now have a great little tap-house & shop on site as well as a busy events venue.
We’ve not done too bad for awards over the years, many of our beers have earned a few gold stars and we, as a business, have also been recognised for our hard work. Here’s a few of the ones that we’re most proud of!
In 2018, we won Outstanding Rural Diversification Project at The Rural Business Awards , we were also shortlisted for the Rural Drinks business award too!
In 2017, we were awarded top prize for Specialist/Niche Business of the Year at the Radio Pembrokeshire awards
Since opening in 2013, a total of 7 of our beers have been awarded GREAT TASTE stars
We don’t have an official title for this one, but it has been rumoured that our Brewer is the best looking brewer in the Welsh Beer Industry
