Thornbridge is set to open its first international bar, with a new site in the Netherlands.
The project is the result of a partnership with importer Bier&Co and local operator Paul Leeyan, who has been stocking the Derbyshire-based brewer's beers in his existing pub in the city of Den Bosch. A new dedicated Thornbridge bar is set to open there on 4 September.
Thornbridge’s chief operating officer Simon Webster said: 'It really continues what we have been doing in the UK and on export – find and work with people who are as passionate about beer as we are and have skills that complement what we wish to do with Thornbridge beers.”
The independent brewer – credited as one of the founders of the craft beer movement in the UK – currently operates ten pubs across the border from Derbyshire, in its Sheffield homeland. It also exports its beers, including flagship brew Jaipur, to over 30 countries.
