2007Arbor Ales opened in 2007 in the Old Tavern pub and by 2008 it had expanded to Kingswood and a 5.5-barrel plant. Further expansion took place in 2009. The brewery bought its first pub, the Old Stillage, in 2009 and it's second, the Three Tuns in Hotwells, 2010. Particular pride is taken in the darker ales, a result of the brewer's involvement with the Bristol & District Rare Ales Group (www.badrag.co.uk). Around 160 outlets are supplied direct.
