In 2004 Edale Brewery bought the hotel along with the brewery and added another brewing name – Wellington Brewery, the reason behind this was that the Hillsborough Hotel was previously known as The Wellington. Additional beers were then produced along side the existing range of Crown beers. In 2006 Edale Brewery sold the hotel and brewery to Andrew and Helen Walker and they extended the opening hours which are now Midday – 11pm 7 days a week and introduced a permanent day time food menu. Brewing did not comence until July 2007 when Stuart Ross was employed, his experience at both Acorn Brewery and Kelham Island Brewery brought consistency to the original range.New recepies were added and the first brew of Traditional Bitter 4% won Champion beer at Sheffield Beer festival in October 2007 along with Stannington Stout coming top of its category. Wheetie-Bits 4.4% and Primrose Pale Ale 4.2% are now also regular seasonal brews and we also produce one off monthly specials. Some of our permanent range is available bottle conditioned as well as beers brewed especially for bottling such as Wheat Stout 6.6%, Ring of Fire 10.3% and Unpronounceable IPA 7% with more new and interesting beers on there way.
