We’re proud to announce the opening of yet another brewery in Sheffield, right on the doorstep of the late great Cannon Brewery.
This brings the total number of breweries in S3 to 5, all within walking distance. Brewery crawl did I hear you say?
Current brew-length is 22.5 BBL, making it one of the largest breweries in Sheffield, with a possible weekly output over 500 firkins.
Initially beer range will include; the Legendary Barnsley Bitter (3.8%) and a vintage Dark Mild (3.4%). The range is expected to quickly expand to include a Best Bitter (4.3%) and Blonde (3.9%). Also in the pipeline are a Burgundy, Porter and other specials to be confirmed.
The name forms a tribute to Head Brewer and co-owner, Jonathan Stancill, who along with his father Bob formulate over 90 years of brewing heritage. The brewery team also includes MD, Mr Thomas Gill, Director Dr Adam Hague and support staff Mr Dean Pleasant. “Barnsley is my birth town but Sheffield has been my home throughout the past 6 years of Medical School. It is here where I developed my passion for Real Ale and opening this brewery in such a prolific city of brewing is one of my proudest moments. I’d like to speak on behalf of myself, Tom and Jonny and give thanks to all at Forum Café Bars Ltd for making this dream come true”, said Adam.
