March 2016 is going to be a good beery month with SIBA’s Beer X festival from March 16 and #SheffBeerWeek alongside from March 14.
Events are gathering pace with a number of breweries planning new beers to launch during the week. With St. Patrick’s Day falling in the week, it looks like a few breweries are taking inspiration from the classic Irish stout style, but I’m sure they’ll be big twists!
Breweries announced so far include Thornbridge, Abbeydale (who celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2016) and True North Brew Co (who are collaborating with Manchester breweries BlackJack and Runaway). They’ll be lots of Tap Takeovers and Meet the Brewers going on around the city during Sheffield Beer Week. Exit 33 and Emmanuales will be joining forces to host an event at Exit 33 tap The Harlequin. Stancill and The Red Deer, on Pitt Street, are planning a joint event to build on last year’s.
They’ll be lots of events in the city centre AND the beery suburbs in venues such as Picture House Social, The Broadfield, Hop Hideout, New Barrack Tavern, The Hillsborough Hotel and many more venues. Let’s raise a glass to #SheffBeerWeek!
