OUR BRAND VALUES*

Founded in 1993 by the Davis family, over the past 20 years Hobsons have grown to become a leading brewer in Shropshire and one of the most sustainable breweries in the UK. The success of their brewery and its many awards has been down to a strong culture of supporting their region, its people and its resources. Hobsons brewers are skilled in the dark arts (or is it science) of making great cider too, taming nature and perfectly preserving its fruit. We are proud to be an independent brewery based in Cleobury Mortimer Shropshire and this year we celebrate our 25th year of brewing. Our ethos for everything local has remained at the heart of the brewery, sourcing the finest ingredients and supporting our customers and community. We have grown organically to be the stand out brewery in the region, developing a range of award-winning cask ales and bottled beers. Notable awards include CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain in 2007 and SIBA Best Green Business in 2010. Brewing the 'Hobsons way' has a common sense approach with attentiveness to quality, service and sustainability. Our beers are honestly brewed the green way with a serious commitment to wind, sun and waste power generation.

OUR COMMITMENTS*

Sustainability

Our vision is to become the country's leading sustainable brewery Sustainability has become an increasingly important part of what we do at Hobsons and over the past five years we have strived to reduce our effect on the environment by embracing sustainable technologies and harnessing the environmental assets where we live. Every decision made has sustainability at the core; additional micro generation technologies, production efficiencies, waste utilisation and ingredient local sourcing.

Environment

Hobsons Brewery is one of the largest breweries in Shropshire and leads the field in sustainable technologies, innovating new ideas, community involvement and environmental awareness. The project commenced in 2017 and saw the development of an integrated cask washing and filling system within an automated hygienic environment.

Local Communities

From the early days we have been supporting publicans, village fetes, local fund-raisers and sports teams. Activities include helping a local club buy a new rowing boat, fuelled a group of inland sea shanty singers, created charity beers for the Royal British Legion and British Hedgehog Preservation Society and championed a vibrant mix of events and festivals.

Inspiring & Educating

Hobsons Tasting Room is a great space to deliver training courses, we regularly organise Personal Licence Courses and have just launched a new Beer School course.

Energy Reduction

In December 2014 we installed Photovoltaic Panels with individual inverters to harvest the most energy, incorporated with our Wind turbine we now produce circa 40% of all our electricity power. In 2013 we constructed a 100m² Visitor Centre/Tasting Room from local stone with a high thermally efficient roof and windows, all heating is sourced from waste hot water and fed via the underfloor heating loops.
