Bakewell brewers inspired by tree

Thornbridge brewery has launched a brand new beer.

The brewery, based on Buxton Road in Bakewell, unveiled its new 4.5 per cent Sequoia ale this week.

A Thornbridge spokesman said: “We are lucky enough to have a mighty Sequoia tree growing in the grounds of Thornbridge Hall, inspiration on our doorstep.

“The Thornbridge Sequoia American Amber Ale has beautiful citrus and pine notes that come from our generous additions of Amarillo, Centennial and Chinook hops. It is smooth and velvety in the mouth with the toasted malts giving it a medium body with hints of roasted hazelnut, toffee and caramel malt flavours.”

Sequoia is available now. Call 01629 641000 for more details.
