Details

Aged with raspberries in burgundy barrels, this 7% ABV sour red ale won the silver medal at the 2016 World Beer Cup. Intensely tart with plenty of sharp raspberry fruitiness, Days of Creation is smooth and complex with a hint of lemon zest in the dry finish.

Brewery Info

A forerunner of the British craft beer movement, Thornbridge Brewery was started in the grounds of the eponymous Thornbridge Hall in the heart of the Peak District. Aiming to make a range of cask beers with a modern twist, they’ve won over 350 national and international awards - pretty good going for what started out as a tiny 10-barrell brewery.

A couple of interesting facts for you - the co-founder of Brewdog actually started out at Thornbridge back in the day, helping to create Thornbridge’s flagship IPA Jaipur, and in 2014 Thornbridge won “Best Drinks Producer” in the BBC Good Food Awards….beating Brewdog to the top spot. Although they’re seen as a more traditional brewer, Thornbridge also has a good mix of ‘new’ creations making them a firm favourite with us.

Ruby colour, small off-white head. Tart berryish aroma with raspberries. Medium-bodied. Tartish berry juice - raspberries. Burgundy wineous tannines are evident too. Nice framboise-like sour ale.

Pours slightly hazy brown with a large off-white head. Aroma has quite some raspberry sweetness upfront, oak, caramel, some lactic acid. Taste is soft sour with lots of rapsberry sweetness, wood, some lactic acid, some wine, slightly dry finish. Medium body and carbo. Nice stuff, but a pretty high price tag.
Wow....

Another fantastic sour ale, aged in Burgundy wine barrels with raspberries. This is the "sister" beer of Love Among Ruins, which was a gold medal winner at the World Beer Cup 2016. This beer won silver and I'm by no way surprised by that.

Like with Love Among Ruins, it is tart without being vinegary and has a fruity raspberry flavour. Very drinkable.
Silver medal?
