Hop Hideout, Nether Edge

Hop Hideout on Abbeydale Road has been named the UK’s Independent Beer Retailer of the Year at the Drinks Retailing Awards 2018, which took place at the Dorchester Hotel in London on 7 February.

The specialist beer shop, which opened in November 2013, is run by Jules Gray and Will Linford and is dedicated to showcasing local breweries from Yorkshire and beyond. As well as a selection of more than 450 bottled and canned beers (plus a hand-picked range of quality ciders), the shop contains a small bar with 6 taps, at least one of which always features a CAMRA-approved key keg. You can expect to find local favourites such as Bradfield and Thornbridge alongside rarer and more experimental breweries from further afield.

Congratulations to Jules and Will on their award.

Dominic Nelson
