Brewery tour and visit to the new shop and visitor centre
"Hobsons is a local independent brewery based in Cleobury Mortimer south Shropshire. We are dedicated to producing wholesome real ale using the finest quality locally sourced ingredients and this practice has helped set the flavour of Hobsons apart from the competition. It has also played a key part in the recognition we have gained in the form of awards like CAMRA West Midlands Beer of the Year 2011 and Champion Beer of Britain 2007 for our Mild. Hobsons has also been commended for embracing sustainable technologies and harnessing its environmental assets, by winning the SIBA National award for Best Green Business in 2010."
