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

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.
