Hobsons Kitchen Tap
Hobsons Kitchen Tap: Onsite Brewery Taproom
In April 2014 we opened a new facility at the brewery to host brewery trips and special events. Our vision was to create an enhanced visitor experience at Hobsons Brewery and Cleobury Mortimer, by developing a sustainable space working in collaboration with local partners.
The project received £50,000 worth of funding from Defra's Rural Development Programme for England and was officially opened on 2nd April 2014 by Rural Affairs Minister Dan Rogerson. The multifaceted facility has been constructed by local tradesmen using locally sourced materials; the building has been constructed with Gabions utilising local Cleehill stone, offering high levels of insulation and low energy use. Sustainable technologies including our ground source heating system have also been installed to minimise energy use.
In May 2019, 5 years later, our space formerly known as the tasting room has blossomed into Hobsons Kitchen Tap. An onsite brewery taproom - Hobsons Kitchen Tap is open all year round. Seasonal, locally sourced small plates are available to enjoy alongside a pint of our Hobsons ale or Oldfields cider. A range of wines and spirits produced by our friends will also be on offer; including gin and vodka from Kirkwood distillery; we brew the base ingredients for them, which contribute to creating a truly unique Hillside Gin and Barley Vodka. Hobsons Kitchen Tap is also home to our brewery shop, where a range of bottled beers and ciders, gift packs, clothing and more products from brands we're proud to work with are available to buy.
