Thornbridge Meet the Brewer

Great news, Thornbridge is coming to town for a meet the brewer session at lovebeer@borough!

Ideal as a last minute Christmas present for your beer-loving buddies or family, or possibly as a treat for yourself to look forward to in January, tickets cost just £15 and are available from Utobeer or the Rake (both on Borough Market) or by emailing or calling 020 7378 9461.

Available to a thirsty public will be the brewery’s renowned interpretation of a classic India Pale Ale (IPA) in the form of Jaipur, the South Pacific-inspired Kipling and the beautiful Bracia, made with Italian chestnut honey – which was recently chosen for, and proved to be the star of, the British Guild of Beer Writers annual awards dinner.

Also to feature is the beer I brewed when I was up there, Seven Heron, which I tried for the first time on Friday night and was pretty pleased with, apart from the slight toffee up front which I'm not that fond of, I think it's got really refreshing pine, citrus & slightly minty flavours to it, offset by a slight bready flavour which stops it becoming too aggressive on the bitterness front.

Hope to see you there!

This post promotes a tasting at lovebeer@borough, which I am a partner in.


  1. Your Heron has arrived at the Grove here in Huddersfield and will be on the bar shortly! Had just about given up - will let you know how we find it.

  2. Hiya Will, I'm pretty pleased with it and did consume a vast quantity with pride when it hit the Rake!

  3. Really wanted to be sat in the garden on a glorious summer day with your beer, but much appreciated nonetheless - oh and it fair flew off the bar. Well done! Mini review on our blog.

  4. Hi Melissa, I really love your Blog.
    All the Best for 2009, Keep Typing..
