New beginnings and new name for Bristol brewery

By martin booth, Monday Sep 30, 2019

A brewery founded by friends Calum Doutch and Dan Snow is relaunching with a brand new name.

Tapestry is the new name for the brewery formerly known as Cocksure, who brew their beers in Totterdown Bridge Industrial Estate on Albert Road in St Philip’s Marsh.

Four years on, Calum and Dan say that they “have decided to embrace with a new identity that positively reflects both what we have achieved so far and where we see ourselves going in the future”.

Calum and Dan have spent the last six months working away behind the scenes with designer Gavin Andrews of Thirty Three + Rebel.

Calum and Dan said: “We don’t want to simply tell our Bristol brew story, to shout about how great we are; our goal is to become a platform for everyone to share their stories.

“It’s the story of our customers, our consumers, our employees and the people we work with via our charity partnership with Send A Cow over in Africa.

“We firmly believe that as a business we have a duty to raise awareness of charity and a responsibility as individuals to do our bit to support others less fortunate.”

Cocksure’s beer range has been updated as it becomes Tapestry, with a core range of Propeller Pale Ale, Swingball Session IPA, Raconteur Amber Session and Topline IPA; specials Night Ride Cold Brew Stout and Latest Haze New England IPA; and the African series of African Mango and Orange Pale Ale, African Hibiscus and Honey Golden Ale, and African Blackberry, Raspberry and Gooseberry Stout.

To celebrate the new look, the official Tapestry launch party is taking place at the taproom from midday to 9pm on Saturday, October 5; while from 6pm on Saturday, October 17 there will be a Tapestry tap takeover at the Royal Navy Volunteer on King Street.
