Butcombe Brewing Co. is part of Liberation Group which consists of over 100 pubs, bars and inns with rooms, stretching across South West England and into the Channel Islands, employing over 900 people. We’re very proud of our eclectic and unique estate, each venue with its own distinctive style and feel, focused on what works best for that site and their local area.
Based in the South West, Butcombe Brewing Co. has a state of the art brewery in Wrington, Bristol and a multi-million pound distribution and bottling plant in Bridgwater, Somerset. Alongside its pubs and bars, Liberation Brewing Co. has a unique craft brewery in Jersey and a retail and wholesale business covering all of the Channel Islands.
Though we like our food and drink to do the talking, it’s always great to receive some accolades. For two years running we’ve won the highly prestigious Publican Award for Best Food Offer, and The Methuen Arms recently won their third AA Rosette. Both the Butcombe and Liberation breweries have won multiple gold medal awards in recent years.
We have bold plans to develop our estate by proactively acquiring new sites and continuing to develop our existing ones. With 16 major transformations completed in the last 18 months and 850 new covers added, alongside a nearly 20% increase in room capacity, we have already made a great start on this journey.
Focusing on our most important asset – our people – is at the centre of our strategy. We continue to invest in training and development for all colleagues, ranging from wine champions to apprenticeships, and our very own internal learning management system.
Perks of the job? Apart from getting to work in a fun and fast paced role, all employees get a number of great benefits including money off food and drink in all our pubs and bars.
