Crookes pop-up

A new micro-pub appeared briefly in Crookes during the Christmas holidays, well visited by those in the know who mainly found out through social media where this ‘pop up venue’ was promoted.

The Crookes Alehouse was in the former Mr Bens fancy dress shop, open for just 4 days from 27th to 30th December, closing early on the 30th due to running out of beer!

This was an exercise in market research to test demand for such an establishment, the beer was principally 3 casks stillaged on the shop counter with the choice being Magic Rock Ringleader NZ, Sheffield Brewery Porter and Sheffield Brewery First Gold at a very reasonable £2.50 per pint.

There were also bottled beers and mulled cider.
