About Hopjacker


Hopjacker Brewery is a progressive new microbrewery based at the Dronfield Arms free house, producing exciting, hop forward beers. Situated in the town of Dronfield, we are approximately 5 miles south of Sheffield and 5 miles north of Chesterfield.  

We started this brewery to produce more of the beers that we love, using specialist malts and hops from around the world to craft beers which will excite you as much as they do us.
