Sheffield Beer Census

Saturday 30 March will see the return of the Sheffield Beer Census after a break in 2018.

For those who haven’t taken part in the census before, Sheffield & District CAMRA organises this city-wide survey to try and get an idea of the full range of real ales and ciders available around the Steel City on a particular day. Volunteers take an area of the city each and visit as many pubs as possible, noting the name, brewery, ABV and price of every real ale available in each one.

Other cities such as Derby, Manchester and Norwich also undertake similar surveys as we compete for the coveted title of Beer Capital of the UK.

At the February branch meeting we are hoping to recruit volunteers to lead each route. If this is something you might be interested in, please come along for more information. Those wanting to lead routes in suburbs we don’t often get to, particularly in the north and east of the city, are especially welcome. The meeting will take place at the Old Queens Head, Pond Hill on Tuesday 5 February (8pm start).

Look out in next month’s Beer Matters for full details of all routes and route leaders.
