Tip your hat to Hobsons

A brewery from Cleobury Mortimer marked 25 years of business with a rail journey through the heart of the Shropshire and Worcestershire countryside in March. Hobsons Brewery celebrated its quarter century during the trip, which featured shanty singers, fun games, and a fabulous feast at the Engine House in Highley. The highlight was a stunning cake made by Bootolicious Cakes, also of Cleobury Mortimer, reflecting Hobsons’ commitment to source as much as possible of their produce from their local area.

The brewery was founded by Jim, Katie and Nick Davis in 1993 and was originally named Henry Hobson after the classic film Hobson’s Choice. 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, and they have also picked up a bevy of awards including A CAMRA Beer of the Year award in 2012 and international awards for their Shropshire Stout and Old Prickly brews.

The firm have released a series of films about their anniversary, and these can be seen on their website – hobsons-brewery.co.uk.
