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

Goffs Brewery was born in the shadows of Sudeley Castle by Marcus and Alison Goff, both of whom have a passion for creating great tasting beers.  Marcus’ father, Master Brewer Brian Goff, created the first batch of Jouster in 1994 – a good honest all English hopped session bitter – which has twice been a finalist in CAMRA’s Great British Beer Festival, as well as winning many other regional awards.

After brewing the now renowned Cheltenham Gold for race week, demand was so great it was soon promoted to our permanent roster of core beers.  Accolades such as Gloucestershire’s Beer of the Year 2017 make this American hopped golden ale a firm favourite in pubs and bars across the county and beyond.

Welcome to the Family


Gloucestershire CAMRA’s Beer of the Year 2017

Award winning American hopped golden ale.  Brewed with a blend of the 7 “C” hops, including Cascade, Citra and Chinook to give a light and citrusy hop burst.  Originally brewed to celebrate the world famous Cheltenham Gold Cup but it has proved so popular we now brew it all year round. 

4.7 ABV

A well hopped pale ale using Pilgrim, Fuggles and East Kent Goldings for a gentle bitterness and a dry hoppy finish.  Deceptively drinkable for it’s strength.

4.0 ABV

A well balanced all English hopped best bitter with a gentle hoppy aroma and a malty finish.

3.8 ABV

 A zesty golden session ale packed full of Cascade hops to give a light citrus aroma.

5.3 ABV

A deep ruby red beer with powerful chocolate malt aromas and a hint of vanilla.  Brewed with Bramling Cross hops for a soft lingering fruity finish.  A classic porter.

4.4 ABV

A full bodied deep mahogany beer with a rich biscuity malt flavour and a delicate hoppy aroma.
