Brewery process for web.png

Here at Derby Brewing Company we pride ourselves on making excellent beer using the finest raw ingredients.

MALT : We only use the finest malts from Warminster malting, specifically Maris Otter; the world’s best malt. Unlike many other breweries we mill our malt ourselves, ensuring the malt is milled just a few hours before it is used in the brew giving maximum flavour.

HOPS : We source our hops from all over the world. Each hop variety provides its own unique flavour and many of our beers use a combination of several varieties of hops to create complex fruity flavours.

WATER : Derbyshire is known across the world as the home of real ale and the purity of our water plays a big part in the taste of our beer.

YEAST : We culture our own strain of live yeast; this gives more flavour than dried yeast and brings flavour consistency across all Derby Brewing Company beers.

Just a quick note to say how much my brothers and I enjoyed the brewery tour last Saturday. The two guys who were at the brewery itself were very helpful and enthusiastic, they obviously enjoy what they do. The staff at the Tap were great as well. We all had a great time!
