Ashover Brewery

Fine beers Brewed in Derbyshire

About Ashover Brewery

Ashover Brewery has been producing beers in Derbyshire since 2007. Furthermore, they have won many awards for their beers ever since. The brewery was founded by Roy Shorrock & Kim Beresford and was originally located at the Old Poets Corner pub in Ashover.

The idea was to bring existing real ales to the pub and with this, in mind, it soon became clear that they were making a success of it. Consequently, after experimenting with flavours and brewing techniques the popularity of the beers grew and so did the range.

Kim and Roy continued to brew at the Old Poets Corner until 2015. However, they reached a point where demand for their brews was so high that they were forced to relocate the brewery. As a result, the brewery is now based in Clay Cross in Derbyshire.

Moving On

Whilst the brewery was a success for so many years, all things considered, Kim and Roy made the decision to retire. So, they handed things over to David Neale. David is a local entrepreneur and publican. In fact, he has a real passion for real ales and continues to run the brewery successfully.

David’s visions are to expand the business and expand the brand. As a result, he has already facilitated online purchasing. You can now buy the beers directly from the Ashover Brewery website. Additionally, you can also buy them from Brew2you.

Similarly, David has also been hard at work teaming up with pubs in the area. So, you can now find them more frequently in Derbyshire’s watering holes.

Brewing Award-Winning Beers

During the years Ashover Brewery has won awards with CAMRASIBA and at several beer festivals with a grand total of 35 awards so far.
