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.

Pretty decent red this, usual standard from Thornbridge in terms of being tasty if a little unexciting. But as far as something marketed as supposedly Christmassy it's lacking a lot in the flavour department.
Very good from thornbridge as always

Really like this hoppy red ale. The best of both worlds on this one with a hop heavy flavour and balanced malts! Hope they do it again at Christmas time!

All over the place. Starts spicy, then goes tropical and finishes hoppy. About as festive as the Easter Bunny.
Interesting, and perfectly drinkable, but far from Thornbridge's best.
