Timothy Taylor’s Brewery Partners With Thornbridge Brewery for the First Ever Collaboration Beer in Their 165-Year History

Timothy Taylor’s chose to work with Thornbridge for the first collaboration beer in their 165-year history to create Artesian, a refreshing Elderflower and Gooseberry Pale Ale, ideal for summer refreshment.

The two breweries have long admired each other’s approach to cask and craft beer respectively, with Landlord and Jaipur both being widely regarded as the pioneers within their respective categories, and both having won more awards than any other beers.

The brewers’ mutual knowledge and passion led them to brew a style of beer that could be showcased in the more traditional cask format for pubs, but also enjoyed in keg format in bars and restaurants and from cans at home. The Artesian collaboration with Thornbridge comes just five months after Timothy Taylor’s Hopical Storm became its first beer to be launched in can.

Rob Lovatt, Head Brewer at Thornbridge, commented: "We are incredibly proud to be the first brewery to work alongside Timothy Taylor’s for a collaboration.

"Nearly everybody at Thornbridge regularly drinks Landlord, so to create a modern pale ale with them is really exciting for the whole team!"

Andy Leman, Timothy Taylor’s Head Brewer, added: "It has been a pleasure to work alongside Rob Lovatt and the brewing team at Thornbridge to produce Artesian Elderflower and Gooseberry Pale Ale. They have a great reputation for their partnerships, and share our uncompromising passion for quality and consistency, so were a natural choice for brewing our first collaboration.

"Artesian is a fresh pale ale that just screams summer and was brewed using Crystal, Chinook and Amarillo hops, Pale Ale malt and wheat. It is packed with aroma and flavour from the addition of elderflowers and gooseberries, and we look forward to hearing how our customers are enjoying it over the next few weeks."

At 4.2%, Artesian starts as a light and quaffable pale ale, brewed for easy enjoyment with bountiful elderflowers and zingy gooseberries added to create a vibrant mix of summer flavours. For beer lovers who enjoy food pairing, it is a good match for goat cheese and fig crostini.

Artesian will be launched at Thornbridge's Peakender Festival in the heart of the Peak District over the weekend of 18-20 August, and will be available to trade and consumers from late August for a limited time only. Stay tuned to our social media channels for release dates.
