Drone Valley Brewery

The Drone Valley Brewery is now brewing at their own brewhouse in Unstone. The first beers brewed there appeared on the bar at the Three Tuns in Dronfield on the 29th March – these were Fanshawe Blonde and Dronny Bottom Bitter. Since then the range has been expanded to also include Drone Valley IPA, Stubley Stout and Gosforth Gold.

The previous Drone Valley beers sold had been cuckoo brewed at Barlow Brewery.

The official launch of the brewhouse took place on 16th April with a public open day featuring beer and music, followed in the evening by an invite only event which saw local MP Natascha Engel pull a pint and declare the brewery open!

The brewery is a Community Benefit Society and memberships are available for £10 each per year, which includes a £1 share. Investors are also still welcome to buy shares in batches of £100. As a community Benefit Society, a portion of the profits are to be ploughed into local good causes
