Abbeydale Brewery

Abbeydale Transatlantic

Following the success of our North American IPA, Orange Wheat Beer and Belgian Saison,  the latest in our range of different beer styles is West Coast Pale. At 4.3% this features the American hops Cluster, Columbus and Cascade to give hints of sherbet and black pepper, with a fabulous citrus flavour.  This should still be on the bars of Sheffield at the beginning of July.

Dr Morton Combustion Engine Abbeydale Trance Sister

Also be on the look out for newest specials Trance Sister (3.8% golden pale), Dr Morton’s Eternal Combustion Engine (4.2% pale and dry hopped) and the Sunfest Special Dr. Morton’s Survival Kit (4.1% pale featuring the excitingly named ‘Experimental #30D’ hop!)

Talking of Sunfest, it’s that time of year again when we take over The Rising Sun car park in Nether Green from 10th-13th July. There will be 100+ beers and 20+ ciders on offer, mainly new and/or special beers from breweries both near and far. Aside from the beer we have plenty to keep you entertained with live music in the evenings, dance groups and the infamous Dog Show on Sunday afternoon, and if you are feeling peckish, the Whirlow Hall Farm hog roast is returning on the Saturday. Anyone wishing to volunteer at this years festival, please contact the pub on 0114 2303855.

To get to The Rising Sun on Fulwood Road, you will need to hop on a 120 or 83A bus heading to Crimicar Lane/Fulwood and there is a stop just outside the pub! Our chosen charity this year is Cavendish Cancer Care and 10p from every pint of the Survival Kit will be donated to that fantastic cause.

You may well have seen our collaboration with Founders brewery in Michigan in May, which saw the creation of 3712. This flew out almost as fast as a transatlantic jumbo! Seeing how well this went down we have teamed up with another brewing great, however slightly closer to home with an away trip to Raw at Staveley. As this goes to print there has been no decision made yet on the style or strength, however it should be ready to be launched at Sunfest. Make sure you come down and say hello, we should be there all weekend!

Abbeydale Tramlines2

Last but not least, due to public demand we have been asked to provide Tramlines with our winning Tramlines #2 beer from last year. This will be available from mid-July and throughout the festival.
