Hop Hideout celebrates first birthday

Sheffield based specialist beer shop, Hop Hideout, is celebrating its first anniversary after opening its doors in November last year.

Located within the Vintedge arcade, at 444 Abbeydale Road, Hop Hideout stocks beers from Saltaire, Bradfield, Buxton, Great Heck, Thornbridge and Summer Wine as well as other local breweries.

A loyal following of beer enthusiasts keep owners, Julia Gray and Will Linford, on their toes as they ensure more intriguing and harder to find brews such as Eight Degrees (Ireland), North Coast Brewing (America) and Oud Beersel (Holland) are also regularly available.

Julia Gray, joint owner of Hop Hideout, said: “We’ve had a fantastic first year. We’ve especially enjoyed hosting events including tutored tastings, art exhibitions and ‘Meet the Brewer’ evenings – it’s really important for us to engage with our customers and inspire them to try something new.

“We’ve already got some plans in the pipeline for next year when we hope to run further beer and food matching events,” continued Julia.

Hop Hideout is open 12 to 5pm on Wednesday and Thursday, 10am to 6pm on Friday and Saturday and 11-4pm on Sunday.

Look out for birthday celebration event details on Hop Hideout’s website – 15th and 16th November.
