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.

Lovely, easy drinker, with noticeable flowery taste.
Never saw this one coming

A number of years ago (I think at an airport) I had the misfortune to try chocolate infused with rose water. Nasty. Like eating soap. So I approached this creation from Thornbridge with some skepticism. And loved it. One of the best wheat beers I've tried and one I would certainly buy again.

Golden colour, hazy, some carbonation
Medium white head, disappears quickly
Lemon, rose, floral and coriander aroma
Medium foamy, oily mouthfeel with some carbonation
Strong floral, lemon, rhubarb, hoppy and vanilla flavour
Slightly dry, hoppy, strawberry aftertaste, slightly lingering, little carbonation
Strange one!

I wasn't a massive fan of this but my husband liked it. The addition of dried rose petals as sediment just didn't do it for me! Quite sweet and tangy.
