This Beer is the second iteration of a project we have been working on at the Brewery for a few years now. Love Among the Ruins is a 7% abv sour red ale that is aged in red burgundy with Cherries a perfectly balanced sour ale which went on to win Gold in the World Beer Cup Awards for 2016 How did we create such an amazing beer you ask? well.... We wanted to create a modern sour ale that aged in barrels that had the same complexity and depth of flavour that our favourite sours from the USA offer. After using Belgian yeast strain to give a good foundation on which to build, we aged the beer in Burgundy barrels with the fruit for well over a year. Adding culture of Brettanomyces, Pediococcus and Lactobacillus at set points let us sour the beer gradually over many months and give layers of flavour that can only develope over time. The rich fruit aroma and flavours compliment the sharp sourness which subsides for more malt and yeast characters to come through. Lively, dry and thirst quenching, this a beer to savour; a complex and mature sour ale that we feel fulfils our original objective.

The Thornbridge story began back in 2005 when the founders Jim Harrison and Simon Webster recruited two young brewers to brew on a second hand 10-barrel kit in the grounds of Thornbridge Hall.
The Hall brewery is based in the outbuildings of Thornbridge Hall, surrounded by beautiful gardens within the 100-acre estate. The buildings were renovated in 2004 in preparation for the brewery installation. Jim Harrison and Simon Webster recruited two young brewers, keen to kick-start their brewing career. Their first brew was Lord Marples, a 4% classic bitter, which went on to become a core Thornbridge beer.
Next, they were tasked with brewing something a little different, an IPA which packed a punch in terms of both flavour and ABV. In mid-2005 Jaipur was born. A 5.9% IPA packed with American hops and like nothing else in the beer industry at that time. Following an array of awards and national recognition Jaipur catapulted Thornbridge into the spotlight, demand outstripped supply and the need for investment in a new Brewery became clear.
In 2009 a brand new state of the art brewery was built at Riverside, Bakewell to meet with demand and allow Thornbridge to develop their range of beers. Brewing still takes place today on the original kit at Thornbridge Hall, which allows us to experiment with new brews, create bespoke Hall brews, collaborations and assist the main brewery in Bakewell.
