Brewery wins top pub prize

Have your say

BRILLIANT beers from a Derbyshire-based brewer saw the firm scoop a top award.

Thornbridge, which is based near Bakewell, but has many Sheffield pubs, claimed the best pub operating microbrewer category of the Publican Awards in London.

It was a new category this year to reflect the great number of smaller breweries that now operate pubs.

Simon Webster, Thornbridge’s chief operating officer, said the award reflected ‘great team work across the brewery and pubs’ and thanked customers.
