Peak Ales

The new brewery premises at a rural farm location near Ashford in the Water are almost ready for occupancy. The new brewery equipment is expected to arrive in June with installation and commissioning to take place in July.

The new brewery site will enable much greater capacity for brewing the core range of beers whilst it is planned that the exisiting barn brewery on the Chatsworth Estate will be turned into a visitor centre with limited brewing capacity being retained to facilitate experimental and special one-off brews.

Whilst the setting up of a new brewery is taking place in the background, Peak Ales continues to brew to capacity. However, the popularity of their cask ales has impacted on a reduced ability to produce bottled beers for the take-home market.

A third brew of the ever popular seasonal ale – Summer Sovereign – is planned to take place as soon as a production slot can be found.
