826: Peak Ales | DPA

The beer: "In 2003 Robert and Debra Evans had a carefully prepared plan – sell the house, uproot their family, leave secure jobs and set up a microbrewery in the Peak District…..Chatsworth suggested he took a look at Cunnery Barn on the Chatsworth Estate, the barn buildings were in disrepair but the potential was obvious; the perfect location for a microbrewery had been discovered. Two years later and after many hurdles including planning, electricity, drainage, renovation, finance and resident barn owls, the first beer had been brewed and the owls had a purpose built nesting box – no other barn owls in Derbyshire have accommodation so grand!”

The beer: "Derbyshire Pale Ale (DPA) is our popular traditional full flavoured, crisp and refreshing pale ale, which is well hopped with Goldings for a smooth slightly sweet taste with a hint of spice."

Another one that, for me, ideally needs to be served a little colder. Tasty but not my favourite style as regulars will know. Another quality beer from Peak Ales though.
