    Peakender (at home)

    Peakender (at home)

    Yep this coming Friday *should* be the start of Peakender 2020, the three-day beer and music festival at Bakewell Showground organised by Thornbridge Brewery.
    Of course, it isn't happening, so instead we have our own petit Peakender art home. Indoors of course (it was raining heavily!)
    We're joined by Alice Batham from the Thornbridge brewing team as we reminisce about previous years and find out how things have been at the brewery over lockdown.
    Not forgetting sharing a beer each as well, themed around Peakender.
    You can have your very own Peakender at Home with Thornbridge's rather nifty box here: https://shop.thornbridgebrewery.co.uk/products/peakender-case (https://shop.thornbridgebrewery.co.uk/products/peakender-case)

Craft Beer Essential Listen

Brilliantly crafted (sorry...) pod embracing everything good about the craft beer revolution - not only in Sheffield but around the UK and further afield. Intelligent discussion of new beers, fascinating insights from independent breweries and micropubs and a varied and well-informed panel of tasters.

Warning - listening may lead to development of a healthy thirst.
