At roughly 5 years old, Thornbridge Brewery holds more silverwear than the Williams sisters. Their brewer, Mr. Steffano Costi, is UK brewer of the year. His distinction tops off just about 100 different awards Thornbridge has won in its short history.

Located in Derbyshire, they say “Culinary alchemist Heston Blumenthal would approve of the Thornbridge approach to brewing beer.”

My brother reports that both the Kipling (a South Pacific pale ale) and the Jaipor (an India pale ale) are delicious. He also claims, “It is an ace brewery on the rise.” Everything mentioned above should make that statement all the more obvious.

Thornbridge has a great blog, so if you’re truly interested in your suds, head on over to their site.
