Thornbridge Brewery

It’s been a busy time here at Thornbridge with our new brew house expansion now completed  – nearly £500k invested with the aim of increasing production by 40%. Much needed as stocks have been a little tight around here for a while.

However it’s not all been spanners and engineers we have found time to develop and launch a few new beers as we strive as ever to be never ordinary in what we brew.

Bamberg 6% – This beer is golden brown in colour with an alluring aroma of sweet, smoked malt. The rich, charred maltiness carries through to the taste but is perfectly balanced by a long, cold maturation to produce a robust, intoxicating and unforgettable beer. Hops: Hallertau Malts: Weyermann Smoked Malt, Munich, Crystal.

Bear State 7% – Bear State is a classic IPA brewed in the spirit of the West Coast of the USA. This is a massively hoppy beer, balanced perfectly with a touch of malt sweetness and an intensely citrus hop character to finish. Hops: Centennial, Cascade, Chinook. Malts: Maris Otter, Crystal.

Jehanne Biere De Garde 7.4% – Jehanne pours a deep reddish bronze that hits you on the nose with a sweetness and hint of orange blossom. This is followed by a mouthfeel of smooth silk leading to a toasty caramel affability with a medium dry finish which leaves the palate longing for more. Hops: Goldings. Malts: Pale Ale, Munich, Crystal.

JaipurX 10% – Jaipur IPA is seen by many as the first and most successful beer of the new craft revolution in British brewing. This imperial version has been brewed specially to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Thornbridge beers and of Jaipur’s first brew on 7th June 2005. Hops: Warrior, Chinook, Centennial. Malts: Maris Otter, Vienna.
