History

Ross started brewing in 1989 behind the Brewer's Droop Off-licence on Gloucester Road, Bishopston, Bristol. They moved to The Bristol Brewhouse in 1991. They were the first brewery to use Soil Association approved organic barley. A 5BBL plant was used. Opened a sister plant in Newport in 1994. Also brewed the strongest real ale in the world, Uncle Igor's Famous Falling Over Water, normally 21%, but at times brewed up to 25%, this for a period being brewed in Newport. Bottle conditioned ales were also produced, but these were eventually contracted out and brewed by Eldridge Pope. Brewing ceased in early 1999.

Beers Brewed

We do not maintain a list of beers brewed by each brewery. There may be a list on the brewery's own website. For historical information, we suggest you also visit the brewery page on the unfortunately no longer updated Beermad.

Since the 1974 local government reorganisation there has been much controversy over many county boundaries. The links we provide cover all possibilities: Ceremonial Counties which are the areas for which a Lord-Lieutenant has been appointed, Historic Counties (and their allied county boroughs) which represent the position before the 1974 re-organisation and Local Authority which represents the third tear District level.
