Stancill Brewery has confirmed the Albion will officially re-open its doors on Friday 28 July following an extensive refurbishment of the historic pub.
Since receiving the keys to the building, which has been serving the people of Sheffield since the 1830s, Stancill has undertaken an extensive refurbishment of the interior, as well as overhauling The Albion’s large beer garden.
Twenty new beer lines have been added to the bar which has ten hand pumps which will feature five Stancill ales as well as a changing selection of guest beers. Complementing the beer range, The Albion will stock a rotating selection of world beers.
The refurbished bar pays homage to Sheffield’s industrial past in its styling and will feature artwork from local artists on the walls. CAMRA members can benefit from a 50p discount on all real ales sold within the bar as well as being able to take away your favourite beers to enjoy at home.
The new venue will be managed by Stancill’s experienced pubs manager Katy Streets (pictured) and will offer a greater choice and variety of beers for the London Road area of the city.
Thomas Gill, Managing Director of Stancill Brewery said: “The Albion is a pub which is something of a sleeping giant and when we were offered the chance to acquire it, we felt it would be a good fit with our future growth plans. We wanted to create a slightly different drinking environment from our existing pubs, reflecting its location whilst also offering something genuinely different to London Road and we look forward to giving a warm welcome to CAMRA members who can enjoy similar benefits to those found in our existing pubs.”
