Brimming with Beer, on Chesterfield Road, has been crowned Pub of the Season.

Owner Ben Stephenson, who launched the business three years ago, said he could barely beer-lieve it when he got the news.

“I was pretty elated, to be honest,” said the 31-year-old.

“When I set up Brimming with Beer, it was a bit of a ‘now or never’ moment.

“I had always worked in and around the trade, mostly catering, before I took the plunge.

“When we took on the building, it was just an empty shell.

“We quickly made it our own, transforming a former florist into a bar and shop.”

A keen community feel is what separates Brimming with Beer from the rest, says Ben.

“We do a lot of dog walks and day trips,” he said.

“I think people feel we’re part of the area, part of their lives, rather than just a pub. That’s what we were always going for.”

Add a vast array of ever--changing beers and ales you won’t find anywhere else in Chesterfield, and a 50p discount on Wednesdays for CAMRA members, and you’ve brewed up a recipe for success.

“This was the vision for a long time,” added Ben. “We can’t thank our customers enough for their support.”
