The Great Peak Weekender 2015

The days I did was Friday and Saturday 3rd and 4th July 2015

Thornbridge Beer Peak Weekender

Thankfully there was a shuttle bus from Bakewell to the Thorbridge Outdoor area and also near Thornbridge Hall as it was quite a journey to the beer, we passed Thornbridge Brewery along the way, some confusion on Saturday as to where the shuttle bus was picking up from so thanks to the couple who told us all as we were stood there for over an hour, anyway they got the pickup point sorted later on.


Plenty of ales to try as Thornbridge did a amazing job of keeping the ales running, the line up of ales was changing all the time. The staff were kept busy all day especially on Saturday which was very very busy and very hot.

The sun was shining and thankfully the suntan lotion kept the burns away. I found myself sat on a table with a bunch of strangers, a couple from Halifax, father and son from Barnsley and Sheffield, a guy from Matlock and a woman who lives near Rising Sun at Fullwood/Ranmoor.
