Get to know Bluestone Brewing Co.
Bluestone Brewing Co. is well and truly a home grown venture. Husband and wife, Simon and Kerry had been farming Tyriet Farm for 30 years when, in 2013, they made the decision with their daughter Amy to scale down the farm to make room for a micro brewery. Kerry still runs the farm, while Simon and Amy manage what is now, 5 years on, a thriving business employing 5 full time staff.
Bluestone beer couldn't be produced anywhere other than at Bluestone. The water that they use filters down from the core of the Preseli Mountains to a well on Tyriet Farm land at the foot of the hills. This spring water is so pure that it goes straight from the well into the beers, with no filtering or chemicals added! This is what give Bluestone beer it's unique, pure and solid taste.
As well as caring about the beer they produce and the team that produce it, they are also committed to sustainable, environmentally friendly production. From using solar panels to heat the water to recycling waste hops as mulch for the farm, they are through and through an environmentally friendly brewery.
As the business has progressed, they now put on events throughout the summer, as well as welcoming visitors for brewery tours. Bluestone Brewing Co. is a Welsh business that is going from strength to strength.
