Kipling

Style: South Pacific Pale Ale
Thornbridge Hall Country House Brewery, Derbyshire, United Kingdom

Shortly after the brewery started, a phone call was received from a woman, now in her thirties, who had lived at the Hall and revealed that her father had been the building’s caretaker. She asked about where the brewery was and she said this area was known as Kipling by local children to an area of the estate at Thornbridge Hall. Children growing up at the Hall called the area where they had their play-school in as Kipling – due to a window in the building that was reputed to come from the caravan owned by Rudyard Kipling the author.

The beer is single hopped with Nelson Sauvin, making Thornbridge the first brewery in the UK to use this - others have followed but Kipling remains unsurpassed! Which keeps Kipling as a favourite Thornbridge beer!
