– Innovation Passion Knowledge


Thornbridge branded beers were first brewed in early 2005 after the establishment of a 10 barrel brewery in the grounds of Thornbridge Hall. The initial focus was on a range of cask beers that used traditional recipes but provided a modern twist through the use of a wide range of hops, malts and the innovation and passion of the brewing team. After winning a succession over 350 national and international awards  a new, state of the art, brewery and bottling line was opened at Bakewell in September 2009 to meet with demand and increase range of beers.  The adoption of the Innovation, Passion and Knowledge strap line for the brewery was a statement of the brewery’s culture about how we would approach our day to day business.
