As part of Heritage Open Days (HOD) 2015 and 2016, we led a Pub Heritage Walk. This will be repeated (twice) as part of HOD 2017 (7th.-10th.September). This short walk takes in some of the entries in the CAMRA ‘Yorkshire’s Real Heritage Pubs’ book. Also included are a number of ‘try also’ pubs which include aspects of architectural merit. Places are limited (to 15) and may be booked via Eventbrite. The tours are both on Friday 8th.September (14:30 and 17:30 start): http://tinyurl.com/k46742k http://tinyurl.com/kqmg6jz
For the past two years, The Sheffield Tap has also contributed to HOD. In 2016, there were 86 events in Sheffield, feedback being overwhelmingly positive from both organisers and the public. Full details about HOD are available from the national website www.heritageopendays.org.uk . Also useful is ‘Sheffield Heritage Open Days’ on Facebook and on twitter, @sheff_hods .
Hence, following the success of Sheffield Beer Week, it seems appropriate for more local breweries and pubs to take part. Interested parties are encouraged to contact the local organisers: firstname.lastname@example.org . Contributions could include a brewery visit, cellar tours, short talks .. all providing excellent opportunities to spread the word about the best beer scene in the World.
This year, we hope to see lots of participation from the Sheffield Beer Scene!
