Sheffield Beer Week – a guide to what’s on

SheffBeerWeek300dpi Sheffield Beer Week is a week-long festival celebrating the region’s brewing landscape – old and new! It’s also about highlighting the wonderful world of beer taking inspiration from across the globe. Collaboration is key with Sheffield’s bars, pubs, breweries (local, national and global) and restaurants joining forces to host beery events. Sheffield Beer Week happens across the whole of the city in multiple venues. Imagine a week where breweries hold open days for visitors to explore, pubs host beer festivals, bars have tap takeovers and restaurants offer menus with tailored beer pairings. Every day there will be a unique beer event to enjoy! Sheffield Beer Week is held the same week that the SIBA BeerX is in town, which combines an independent brewers’ conference, trade show and beer festival which means a lot of people from the beer trade are in town. It is also looking likely that True North and Sentinel will both be in their new breweries and offering the opportunity to visit.
