A NEW bread range created to complement beer has gone on sale at the Hobbs House bakery in Chipping Sodbury after a successful launch in London.

Siblings Tom and Henry Herbert of Hobbs House – also known for their double act the Fabulous Baker Brothers – ran what they billed as the world’s first beer bakery for six days in Hackney.

They had spent something like 80 hours devising six types of bread that were inspired by a different beer and baked to go with the ales.

They included a spelt and barley pineapple soda bread and a sea salt and lime encrusted cornbread.

Tom said: “Beer and bread share a history dating back as far as 6000 BC.” 

The bread has also been added to the menu at the town’s Squire Inn.
