Details

This beer is named after the town that hosts Thornbridge: Bakewell (of the tart’ fame (although in Bakewell NEVER call it a ‘tart’, it’s a ‘pudding’). This pours with a nice frothy head, with a very light blonde straw colour. The aroma is… intriguing, it smells a little sour and fruity. It is clean and crisp with a mild sourness. Mild and very, very drinkable. The perfect beer for sunshine and spring air.

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.

This is a nice English style sour. More tart that sour as the name suggests. Lovely on a summer's day

Great tart-sour beer, probably a gateway beer into the style if you’re not yet familiar with it. And you can pick it up in Tesco now! (not that I’m suggesting you do)
