PEAK District brewery Thornbridge has created its first new cask beer of 2011.

Chiron, a golden-coloured pale ale, has been named after a Greek mythological character.

The name was inspired by a statue of the centaur at Thornbridge Hall, where the brewery, owned by Sheffield businessman Jim Harrison, was originally based.

Thornbridge now has its main premises at Bakewell although it retains an experimental brewery at the hall.

The new beer is “a sophisticated drink containing a little hint of hoppy devilment” .

Rob Lovatt, Thornbridge’s Brewery Manager, said: “All aspects of the beer complement each other perfectly.”
