Welcome to Ashover Brewery
We have been brewing beers with Malt, Hops & Passion since 2007 from our great little brewery in the old stable block behind the Old Poets' Corner at Ashover.
2015 marks the expansion of Ashover Brewery into the former Brown ales site at Clay Cross. After eight years of brewing award winning ales on our 4bbl brewery we felt that it was time to stop keeping it all to ourselves. With 20bbl per week extra capacity we can at last lift the lid on Derbyshire's best kept secret.

The Deal is Done
This was the day that we officially took over at the Clay Cross site. It marks a significant step forward for Ashover Brewery in a commercial sense and paves the way for us to enter into the brewing industry marketplace as a serious contender.

Brewing at Clay X Commences
Quite a few things needed to happen before we were ready to brew at Clay Cross. Modifications to the mash tun, replacement gas fired copper, HLT automation, renewed pipework and so on...... When we eventually brewed there were a myriad of new issues that raised their head which now also needed resolving.......Aaahg more expense, but we will overcome!!
A deal with Lincoln's Small Beer is due to kick off this month. Hopefully the first of many. Also our first venture with E-Casks.
