Thornbridge Brewery is to celebrate its 15th anniversary in 2020 with a series of 12 special collaboration beers.
The company felt that joining forces with some of the key players in the UK cask beer scene was the perfect way to commemorate its anniversary. Championing cask beer has always been a priority for Thornbridge.
The collaborations will be kicking off in January with Trevail, an East India porter brewed with St Austell. Following this, there will be brews with Adnams, Harvey’s, Fyne, and Burning Sky, as well as an exclusive collaboration with Timothy Taylor’s.
Thornbridge has worked closely with each brewery on a range of styles, including a mango and jasmine IPA with Marble, a white stout with Ossett, and a double-dry-hopped session IPA with Oakham Ales.
‘For us, cask beer is thriving as much as it ever was’
Thornbridge chief executive, Simon Webster, said: “We love cask beer and we’re delighted to be collaborating with such a range of incredible breweries.
“Many of these have become close friends of Thornbridge over the past 15 years, and it’s fabulous to be able to celebrate together.
“We’re constantly evolving our beer range, and the opportunity to work with the best of the UK beer world to create something seriously special is incredibly exciting.
“For us, cask beer is thriving as much as it ever was, and we hope to bring it to even more people.”
Timothy Taylor’s chief executive, Tim Dewey, added: “Timothy Taylor’s are delighted to be collaborating with Thornbridge Brewery as part of their 15th birthday celebrations. Best wishes to them; onwards and upwards!”
Not only dedicated to crafting cask beer, Thornbridge is entering 2020 with big plans. A keg year of beer will also be released alongside the cask collaborations, including a new low-alcohol variant. Jaipur IPA will be celebrating its 15th anniversary in July, and plans for a new taproom are under way.
