Jaipur--the Thornbridge star! This beer has won so many awards it can't stand up straight! A really wonderful hoppiness leaves you wanting more and that, combined with a none too subtle 5.9% ABV, has led to the phrase "I'm just a bit jaipured" becoming a real phrase in some parts! Tropical fruits and grassy tastes abound if you don't drink at fridge temperature
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.
