But it doesn’t stop there with the new beers. This autumn, we’ll be welcoming new and returning students to Sheffield with our 2016 edition of Fresh Start, hopped with Rakau, Goldings and Bobek; and a special beer which will have you joining the stampede down the local. We will also be raising money for The Children’s Hospital Charity by releasing a special elephant beer to promote the Herd of Sheffield www.herdofsheffield.com. The money raised through donations to The Children’s Hospital Charity will help buy life-saving equipment, fund vital research and treatment for thousands of children from across the world and help create a comfortable, engaging environment for patients. Pubs who participate may also raise funds on their bar through sales before the elephants depart. A celebration farewell is scheduled to be held at the Crucible theatre (we’ll Facebook further details) in October so there will then be an opportunity to donate and sip our charity special on that night too. Ten pounds from each cask we sell will go direct to the charity. Finally, our September bash in our Brewery Tap Room was a roaring success and thanks to Tom and Rich on Friday and Tom Jones on Saturday for playing live and keeping everyone entertained. We shall once again throw open the doors again on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th October from 6.30pm. Come and join us for fresh beer, banter, live music, and good times. Take advantage of our Beer Club by becoming a member for £15 (annual subscription) and enjoy discounts on our bar. Peddlers will also be on so it’s sure to be a lively weekend!
As the summer comes to an end and we start the slow, long descent into winter, hop growers have been out in their fields collecting the harvest of hops that will soon adorn many of the beers we all know and love. And what better way to celebrate hops than to pack them into an old favourite in our core range… Seven Hills has been reimagined as a dry and hoppy pale all, full of Northern Brewer, Magnum, Chinook and Centennial, giving this pale ale bags of citrus flavours and packing a bitter punch.
