After an exhausting first day I’ve enjoyed splitting my time between Thornbridge’s two breweries. Thornbridge first brewed in 2005 at a 10 barrel brewery in the grounds of Thornbridge Hall – a stately home first built in the 12th Century and later developed by Frederick Craven in 1859. As Thornbridge’s beers started to gain popularity they moved into a new state of the art brewery down the road. The difference is staggering…
The new brewery near Bakewell.
Shocked to even see a laptop (although we do need music to brew to)!
Italian designed stainless steel conditioning vessels.
The Hall’s conditioning room. One of these exploded not long ago!
Warehouse to the rear.
Thornbridge offer a brewery tour of the new site every Wednesday at 3pm. Well worth a visit. For more info click here.
Up next. Foodish boy makes a brew. Stay tuned…
