The award-winning Bluestone Brewing Company was founded during 2013. Simon, Kerry and Amy (founders) have grown the business forward, to the thriving micro brewery it is today, with an increased workforce to produce alcoholic beverages to a high standard and also to accommodate increased order quantities. Tyriet is a working family farm and the team ensure that all of the bi-products from the brewing operations are utilised on the farm, including going to animal feeds, which contribute to the eco-friendly practices of this company. From energy-saving light bulbs, to solar panels, plus a zero-waste brewing process and so much more (as detailed on their excellent website), the Bluestone Brewing Company can be justifiably proud of their achievements.

BLUESTONE BEDROCK BLONDE (4.0% vol) Blonde Ale. Hops: Hallertau, Saaz. Good, straw-coloured, easy-drinking beer. Ideal for social occasions. BLUESTONE STONE COLD (4.2% vol) Pale Ale. Hops: Simcoe, Mosiac, Very appealing, with citrusy and fruity overtones. BLUESTONE THE BOTANIST (4.4% vol) Hemp Infused Lager. Hops: Huell melon, Mandarina Bavaria. The Finola Hemp Seed for this excellent beer is grown in Pembrokeshire. Fruity and malty for the aroma and the palate’s sensation.

BLUESTONE ROCKETEER (4.6% vol) Best Bitter. Hops: Bramling Cross, Challenger, Fuggle. This traditional bitter ale I found to be full-bodied, with a very good mouthfeel, having flavour of malts forward. BLUESTONE SAINT CROIX (5.6% vol) New England IPA. Hops: Idaho 7, El Dorado, Citra. A splendid, hazy beer, with a good aroma of tropical fruits. BLUESTONE THE OATY WAY (6.0% vol) Oak Porter. Hops: Amarillo. Oaty and smooth. Richly flavoured, evoking thoughts of cocoa and coffee.

Other beer productions include Moonstone, Preseli Pils, and Stardust – an Imperial Stout (9.0% vol), twelve packs, plus mixed box and gluten-free bundles. For more details, including information about their taproom, on-site shop, live music events and merchandise, please contact and/or visit the website. Online ordering is easy and products are dispatched quickly and efficiently. I found the beers to have great taste and excellent presentation, from the environmentally sustainable Bluestone Brewing Company. Highly recommended.
