Drone Valley Brewery

The Drone Valley Brewery cuckoo brewed its third beer in time for the Chesterfield Market Beer Festival. This was Fanshaw Blonde at 4.8% ABV. The beer proved to be very popular both at the festival and at several local hostelries.


Progress has been made in setting up their own brewery, with a target date of December 2015 for the first brew. Volunteers are needed to help with a range of tasks, including decorating the building. Further investment is still being sought, and the series of roadshows promoting the venture continue. There is a ‘community benefit’ element of the brewery’s ethos in that a proportion of each year’s profits will be donated to local good causes.
