Mango Halcyon- Available Now
Date: 10th April 2017
Location: Thornbridge Riverside Brewery


Get it while you can- Mango Halcyon is available now!

 

For the fourth release from our Year of Beer calendar, which has included Carlota & Puja, brewed with Chillies & Jasmine respectively, we decided for April to re-imagine a Thornbridge classic. 

 

Mango Halcyon is brewed with over a TONNE of mangoes in 20,000 litres of beer! The result is a fantastically drinkable beer which retains the tropica hop flavours of Halcyon and is complemented suberbly with a burst of mango. It pours a hazy gold colour with a light fluffy head. 


This is a very limited edition beer and is likely to sell out fast! Grab some for yourself now at:

Faux Lord it up to win a year long supply of Thornbridge beer!

Faux Lord
Faux Lord it up to win a year long supply of Thornbridge beer!
Date: 3rd April 2017


Have you always wanted to become the Lord or Lordess of the Manor? Now you can as we are giving one lucky person the chance to become the new “Faux Lord” or “Faux Lordess” of Thornbridge, winning a years supply of beer in the process.

 

The competition is part of our new “Faux Lord - Real Beer” campaign which aims to reignite the spirit of George Marples who became the self-appointed “Lord Marples” after buying Thornbridge Hall in 1896."Faux Lords. They’re our kind of people." says Simon Webster, CEO of Thornbridge, "They don’t have the blue blood, but they have the imagination and the drive to succeed whilst having some fun along the way."

 

Our favourite was George Marples of Thornbridge Hall. He had no official title, so he made one up, declaring himself Lord Marples, renovating the Hall and building a private railwaystation so the Queen could visit. It has now been over one hundred years since George Marples ignored the facts and declared himself “Lord Marples” of Thornbridge Hall.

 

So it is time to crown the new “Faux Lord” of Thornbridge. Strike a suitably noble pose and post your picture on Instagram using  #Fauxlorditup & tagging @Thornbridge. Describe what you are the Faux Lord of and why you should win free beer for a year and a takeover of Thornbridge Hall.

The Piano Players APA

Burgess Website new
The Piano Players APA
Date: 20th February 2017


Anthony Burgess, who was born in 1917 and died in 1993, was a writer and composer who is regarded as one of the leading novelists of the twentieth century. His works are widely read all over the world. Burgess was a cultural figure whose work addresses many of the important issues of his time, including censorship, multi-culturalism, individual freedom and sexual liberation. His most famous novel, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (1962), was adapted into a film by Stanley Kubrick in 1971.

 

The International Anthony Burgess Foundation is a charity that encourages and supports public and scholarly interest in all aspects of the life and work of Anthony Burgess. Based in Manchester, England, we have an extensive library, archive and study centre containing Burgess’s books, music and papers. We also have a performance venue where we present new work by writers, artists and musicians.

 

Anthony Burgess would have celebrated his 100th birthday on 25 February 2017. This special anniversary beer, THE PIANOPLAYERS, takes its name from Burgess’s 1986 novel based on his experiences growing up in Manchester in the 1920s and 1930s, and his memories of his father Joe who played the piano in theatres, pubs and silent cinemas.

 

This is a 5.2% American Pale Ale brewed with Amarillo, Mosaic & Simcoe, with a classic Thornbridge-style light malt base to produce a very fruity and fresh beer. Piano Players offers a pungent combination of intense citrus and tropical fruit aromas of passionfruit, apricots, papaya and red berries.

 

To find out more about the great work The Anthony Burgess Foundation does please visit www.anthonyburgess.org

 

The Piano Players American Pale will be available in the Thornbridge Online Shop & Brewery Shop from Monday February 27th
