Thornbridge Jaipur Indian Pale Ale, 4 x 330ml
About this deal
To make that transition smooth, Webster employed Rob Lovatt, who had been working at Meantime Brewery as head brewer. Well, as with many of their beers, the naming comes from a more sentimental side of the Thornbridge brewers. 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. This beer is a award winning Indian Pale Ale which is smooth and soft and then Jaipur releases it's hoppiness which is accentuated by a hint of honey.

For Lovatt and his team, the skill in making IPA is in the blend of hops—finding unique character within varieties and between them, rather than relying on one or two big-hitters and using those hops as marketing tools. Nobody there really spoke about ABV because it was broadly the same, so people drank four or five pints of it, stood up, and fell down. We balance the hops with a great British malt base of maris otter that helps the beer stay light and drinkable, with enough sweetness to keep it in harmony. Produced here in Derbyshire, a carefully crafted smooth sipping gin that can be enjoyed neat, with an ice cube or two or with tonic and a juicy chunk . I can offer a bit of oral history here, because I remember the bloggers of the day spilling rapturous praise for Jaipur onto their digital pages.Craft breweries were definitely looking to the US as they made 7% IPAs with 75 IBUs of Cascade and Chinook hops. The Lord Marples beer was born - a 4% traditional bitter - named after one of the previous occupants of Thornbridge Hall. From the image alone, you can really see the carbonation in the beer, creating a lovely, foamy white head.
He brought in another friend, Simon Webster, who had experience in the food and drink world, and between them hired two guys fresh out of university brewing courses. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Jaipur left drinkers newly interested in hop profiles, drinkability, and even beer history as they pondered the difference between this strong beer with orange, pine and citrus-peel notes and the other primary IPA they knew: the 3. By 2016, ticking culture was at its height within the craft beer industry, and a new trend was about to challenge classical IPA as the flagship style of craft beer. Bitterness and malt character became signs of old-fashioned thinking, replaced by pillow-soft haze and tropical aroma hops.
Jim Harrison, with help from business partner Simon Webster and two other young brewers, set out with aims "to make a small range of quality cask and bottled beers using new recipes, innovative approaches and the use of local fresh ingredients". It was an important moment in British brewing, as a new generation of beer drinkers found these breweries exciting in a way traditional ale breweries weren’t.
