Food Festival beer tent a success!

Local thirst for local beers

The Sheffield Brewers Cooperative tent was in the peace gardens as part of the annual Sheffield Food Festival in May. Brewers from Abbeydale, Blue Bee, Exit 33, Kelham Island, Sheffield and Wood Street manned the bar showcasing two beers from each local brewery.

The weekend was a success selling a whopping 3,240 pints in just 26 hours of trading!

Next year the plan is to take to the stage in the main tent to do a joint meet the brewer with a live brewing demonstration and a special local food and beer-pairing event.
