Devonshire Cat

After a whirlwind December as the new General manager at the Devonshire Cat I am keen to make this the place to be for all things beer related throughout 2016.

Having already added 70 new Items to our bottle and can selection (among others we now offer 9 different Gluten free beers). I would like you to be able to come and sample them not only with us, The Dev Cat Team but also with the brewers that make them. Lets really get our geek on and talk about everything from the malt base, hop profile and yeast strains to simply wether or not you think it tastes good.

Upcoming events in February include a charity quiz in aid of St Luke’s Hospice 02/02/2016 at 6.30pm. A lovingly prepared 2/3 course set menu for Valentines day courtesy of our new Head Chef Andy Mason. (See website for details). March is set to be action packed on the beer front from the very start On Tuesday 03/03/2015 we are pleased to host a tap takeover and brewery launch party for our friends at Lost Industry Brewing (the new kids on the block in the Sheffield beer scene who have just started brewing at their site in Hillsborough).

If you haven’t been living under a rock for the last few months you will know that Sheffield beer week runs from Monday 14/03/2016! Once again Sheffield plays host to The SIBA X festival during that time as such brewers from all over the globe will converge on our fair city. We will be running workshops throughout the week showcasing Abbeydale beers and giving an introduction to beer tasting. There will be drop in question and answer sessions with both myself and some of the Abbeydale team keep an eye on the website and our twitter feed for more info in the near future.

Cheers Liz
