We are pleased to announce that The Sheffield Brewery Company has won three gold awards at the recent SIBA North & East Regional Beer Awards, earning us a place in the national final at next year’s SIBA BeerX in Liverpool.
Our seasonal special American pale ale, Get Thi’Sen Outdooerz (4.0%), not only picked up the best beer in the Cask Session IPA category but was deemed to be the Overall Best Cask Beer in the competition.
Having started life as a one-off two years ago as part of the Ten of the Best series, celebrating The Sheffield Brewery Company’s 10th anniversary, Get Thi’Sen Outdooerz has since become a firm favourite of all those who have graced bars across the area, trying (and failing in some cases) to pronounce its name with as much Yorkshire gusto as thirsty punters can muster. Therefore… (drum roll please!) we are pleased to announced that this award winning beer is now a part of our permanent core range, available in cask, keg and bottle.
We were also thrilled to pick up Gold in the Bottle/Can British Dark Beers 4.5-6.4% category for our breakfast stout, Berlin Black (5.7%). This thick, luscious stout is everything you’d have for breakfast – only in a beer. Cereals, oats, milk (lactose milk sugar), and sausages… wait. Sausages?! Yep – Weyermann Smoked Malt (ahh!), all topped off with Frazer’s Coffee Roasters‘ cold-brewed coffee.
In other news, every year, we introduce first time students to the greatest city on earth with our annual release of Fresh Start. And this year, we have a fresh start of our own. Our new Head Brewer, Marv White, has introduced his first two beers to the brewery’s repertoire. Fresh Start (2018-19 Edition) (4.5%) is a beautifully pale, sessionable, go-back-for-moreish, solid pale ale, with ample amounts of Cascade, Calypso, Chinook and Centennial.
Not only is Marv an excellent brewer, but he is also a semi-professional musician. Drawing from his musical influences, currently fermenting his Marv’s first solo beer (see what we did there!). Lucille (4.5%) – named after BB King’s guitar – is a New England IPA, dry hopped with 10KG of Citra. Full of ester notes and hoppy tones, this fruit beer is a sure-fire hit for your playlist… erm, bar!
