Details

As you expect from the name, Mint Choc Chip, this dark mint chocolate ice cream porter is perfectly described. For those who may wince at the sweetness need not worry, in fact, what you’ll find is a brilliantly-conceived porter that suggests the mint choc chip as a beautiful addition rather than overpowers. Is there any beer Thornbridge can't make?

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.

First tasted as part of my beer advent calendar, and pleasantly surprised. So good I bought more!
More porter than mint

I thought I'd give it a go and I was slightly dreading drinking it but I was pleasantly surprised. You only get a hint of mint, and it's better for it.
Very nice
