A Derbyshire craft beer maker has been rewarded for its work developing new flavours of beer with nearly £10,000 of research and development tax credits from the government.
Thornbridge Brewery has increased its sales year on year to about £9m for the current financial year.
In the last three years, head brewer Rob Lovatt and his team have created a series of high-end barrel aged sour beers in bourbon and burgundy casks.
