Thornbridge are once again running their Year of Beer campaign in 2018, with a special beer being released every month both in cask and on keg. The first cask offering, Predjama (5.0%), a Slovenian-hopped IPA, is already hitting the handpumps in Thornbridge pubs around Sheffield. Other highlights from the list include Coco Cocoa (5.5%) coconut chocolate porter (April), Beerkeepers (5.3%) a summer ale with honey (June), Woodlands (5.5%) pumpkin ale (October) and Tapit (6.0%) chocolate orange stout (November). The Peakender festival also returns this year from 17-19 August. Once again, the festival will feature beers, food, music, live entertainment and family activities, as well as the option to camp over the whole weekend. Breweries confirmed so far include Magic Rock, Beavertown, Cloudwater and Hawkshead. Tickets are available now – see peakender.co.uk for more details.
