NEW STUFF - Buxton Brewery - England

13/04/2016

Citizens,
Buxton is a spa town in Derbyshire, kind of like the town of Bath in southern England. People have been taking advantage of the special “waters” there since the Romans occupied England. The Romans called the town “Aquae Arnemetiae” which translates as “The Waters of the Goddess of the Spring”. 
Buxton Brewery takes advantage of those special waters . Many of these beers take their names from local geographical and geological features near Buxton. The tower depicted on their beer labels is called Solomon’s Temple or Grinlow Tower. It is a “folly,” which means it was built just for decoration, but made to look old and important.
