Founded in 1993 by the Davis family, over the past 26 years Hobsons have grown to become a leading brewer in Shropshire and one of the most sustainable breweries in the UK. The success of the brewery and its many awards has been down to a strong culture of supporting the region, its people and its resources.
The Hobsons vision is to become the country's leading sustainable brewery. Sustainability has become an increasingly important part of what they do at Hobsons and they continue to strive to reduce their effect on the environment by embracing sustainable technologies and harnessing the environmental assets where they are located. Every decision made has sustainability at the core; additional micro generation technologies, production efficiencies, waste utilisation and ingredient local sourcing.
In 2010 they received the SIBA Best Green Business Award and in 2020 they received the Blue Marches Business Award for Water Efficiency.
The skill of their brewer and his careful selection of ingredients have created a consistent and award-winning range of beers, whether in bottle or cask. Many say Hobsons brew beyond their weight, bringing more flavour at lower alcohol strength.
A strong network of growers feeds the brewery with the finest ingredients including hops harvested seven miles down the road and a growing syndicate of local farmers supply Maris Otter Malting Barley.
