Thornbridge Brewery

Thornbridge are this year again running a year of beer programme with a different cask beer each month appearing as a guest in pubs partnering in the scheme (and probably a few other places too!).

The 2024 brew schedule kicks off with a cask version of Green Mountain, the hazy session IPA that is a regular on keg followed in February by Coco Cocoa, a coconut edition of their regular chocolate porter.

In March is a mild called Grand Purposes, to be brewed as part of the International Women’s collaboration day then in April is Hirundo, a 4.5% pale ale. In May the release is “Lost in the Forest” a Slovenian hopped pale ale, June sees the return of Wye cucumber pale ale with a red rye IPA in July and a tropical pale ale in August.

Into the autumn and the flavours start to change with the seasons – in September Lucaria ice cream porter puts in an appearance, this type a Biscoff flavoured version and for Halloween in October of course pumpkin is involved! November has a Chai Latte flavoured stout then for Christmas in December it’s a gingerbread pale ale.

Thornbridge have also been involved with the brewing of a couple of Titanic brewery collaborations. The away fixture (brewed at Titanic in Stoke) was an extra special bitter called Carpathia whilst the home fixture (brewed at Thornbridge in Bakewell) is an IPA called Britannic, brewed using Galaxy and Simcoe hops. Both beers are 5.3% ABV.
