Stancill Brewery

Iconic brewery bar brought to life in Sheffield, with live bands and street food!

Fortunately, as well as rescuing the brewing kit, Stancill Brewery has managed to rescue another relic – the original Bar from the brewery Tap! The Chimney Arms was the name of the Brewery’s onsite Tap Pub that welcomed workers of the old brewery after their shifts, and also retirees from the brewery. The bar itself bears upon it the plaque in commemoration of the service to the Brewery from Mr Umbers who was MD from 1930 – 1968. It is made from old wooden brewery barrels, along with solid oak and copper. I’m sure as you can see from the picture, it’s a beautiful example of brewery history.

We want to give everyone an opportunity to come and see the bar, and more importantly, have a drink (or three) stood at it. We would love you all to sample the Champion Bitter of Yorkshire 2014, Stancill Barnsley Bitter!

We have two brewery open evenings coming up. The first is especially for CAMRA members and will be held on the 25th July commencing 1800. There will be at least 5 real ales available and some craft keg in addition – All beers £1 per half. We will also have wine and soft drinks. Free entry for CAMRA members, £5 for non-members, but free if you sign up to CAMRA on the night!

The second event is on Friday the 15th August. Free entry to all. Live band, street food and real ale, again £1 per half. CAMRA members will receive their first half FREE! This event will commence at 18:00. We look forward to seeing you all soon.
