Goffs Brewery, the Cotswold’s leading craft beer micro-brewery.

Goffs Brewery was founded in Winchcombe by Marcus and Alison Goff, both have a passion for creating great tasting beers, using a closely-guarded traditional recipe. Marcus’s father, master brewer Brian Goff, created the first batch of ‘Jouster’ in 1994 – a good honest session bitter which has twice been a finalist in CAMRA’s Great British Beer Festival, as well as many other regional awards. Further recognition as ‘Gloucestershire’s Champion Best Bitter’ in 1999 created a great demand for Goff’s ales, which are now available in pubs, inns and hotels throughout the Cotswolds and West Country.

Welcome to the Family.

4.7 ABV

A well hopped bitter with a light colour and full bodied taste. Bitterness predominates in the mouth and leads to a dry, hoppy aftertaste. Deceptively drinkable for it’s strength!

4.0 ABV

A drinkable, tawny coloured ale, with a light hoppiness in the aroma. It has a good balance of malt and bitterness in the mouth, underscored by fruitiness, with a clean, hoppy aftertaste

3.8 ABV

 A delicious golden ale. packed with a plentiful quantity of Cascade hops to give a light, citrusy aroma and fresh taste, and an aftertaste full of tropical fruits. Lancer is quickly becoming our best selling ale.

4.0 ABV

An amber coloured thirst quenching session beer with a delicate floral aroma and a hoppy bittersweet finish. This is a lovely drinkable beer all year round.

5.3 ABV

A very dark ruby red tinted beer with powerful chocolate malt aromas and a hint of vanilla. Very smooth, very rich dry malt flavours with a subtle hoppiness. A classic winter porter. Brewed November/December

4.4 ABV

A traditional Brown Ale. A full bodied dark amber beer with a ruby glow. There is no escaping the glorious maltiness of the aroma and this is delightfully complimented by the rich taste with a hint of hoppy bitterness.
