The Brewery of St Mars of the Desert

Hello from the Brewery of Saint Mars of the Desert.  Our first spring has been fab and we keep seeing new faces in the taproom every week.  In addition to our taproom in Attercliffe, you may have seen our beers around town in some of Sheffield’s pubs. Recently we have sent a small amount of beer to Scotland, Leeds, York and Manchester.

We have just premiered our new foeder-aged brown stout “Wudu”.  The foeder has recently come to us from Italy via a cooperage in Germany – it’s a 1200 litre former Barolo barrel constructed of oak and it has imparted a good character of its former use in our Wudu (4.3%abv).   People have also been enjoying our line up of hoppy and hazy pale ales, the latest of which is named “Bam Bam” (5.3%abv) with Olicana and Azacca hops.  We were looking to create a mango-like hoppiness and we think we succeeded.

Upcoming we have a beer that was made in cooperation with local artist Tom Newell and Hop Hideout at Kommune.  This orange zest pale ale saw Martha zesting for the better part of two days and is called “Endless Toil” which matches the title of Tom’s upcoming show. Look out for limited release cans with for collectable labels, available in hop hideout and our taproom from June 20th onwards.

Cheers!  Dann and Martha
