About Anspach & Hobday
Founded by Paul Anspach and Jack Hobday in 2014 under a railway bridge in Bermondsey, the brewery has now moved to a bigger site but they still retain their property at Bermondsey as a tap room. Anspach & Hobday has a reputation for tradition beer brewed in a modern way. Serious beer for the serious beer lovers of the world.
A rich, complex malt base sets the scene for layers of dark, bitter chocolate contributed by the addition of Cocoa husks in the mash. Maturation on Cocoa nibs smooths the beer out, adding a soft, velvety mouthfeel whilst adding more layers of chocolate flavour.
