Sheffield Brewery Company

Sheffield Brewery are known for their range of good quality, easy drinking session beers, however their new CAMRA Brewery Liaison Officer, Gavin Kieran, suggested they brewed a rather more hoppy IPA. Head brewer, Dr Tim Stillman, agreed to do it on the condition Gavin came down and help brew it – so he did. The result is called Siege IPA, brewed with a cocktail of five different hop varities – Chinook, Nugget, Summit, Cascade and Amarillo – bringing a fruity bitterness to the beer with aromas of orange and citrus flavours.

However, despite the explosion of flavours in this limited edition beer it does retain one Sheffield Brewery hallmark – at 4.5% ABV it is still quite session friendly! It also joins the Castle Porter from earlier this year in being a beer that is badged up in support of the Friends of Sheffield Castle.

Meanwhile those that have joined Sheffield Brewery’s Beer Club, the next members social night at the brewery will be 27th March with a home brew theme and as usual, live music, beer and food.
