Right back in January 2003 Robert & 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, Simple? Rob knew he only had one chance to get this right, working hard to find premises suitable to fit in with his dream. 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.
Since those early days, the brewery has gone from strength to strength and they produce multi award winning ales.
We have worked with Peak Ales from the very beginning of Peak District Deli. We have co-hosted three sell out Pop-Up Supper Clubs in true collaboration with them at the Peak Ales Visitor Centre. We're lucky to have their beers in our shop and to have Rob, Debra and all the team as our friends too.
