About us

The Bespoke Brewing Co. is a traditional brewery producing high quality, award-winning beer with a bespoke label design service. Create your own labels for our real ale to make a great gift, or use our design team to personalise the beer for your wedding day, event, venue, club, corporate day or Christmas party. Bespoke labelled bottles make a great talking point for any event.

The beer is produced on the site of the old Wintles brewery in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, formerly a large, independent Victorian brewery. Closed down in the early 1900s we have now resurrected the traditional art of brewing on the same site. Using our bespoke recipes, the real ale is hand-crafted on site using only premium ingredients. Rigorous quality control and tasting ensures that the finished product offers a great taste every time.

In December 2018, Bespoke Brewing Co. changed hands, having been purchased by a family group of directors, headed up by husband-and-wife team, Matt & Milly. Hitting the ground running, they have already made their mark, and have big plans for the future in all areas of the business.
