Beer festival news

Sheffield CAMRA’s 46th annual Steel City Beer & Cider Festival

We are pleased to be able to announce our festival will be returning to Kelham Island Museum again this year from the 21st to 24th October.

As ever we will have lots of real ale and other craft beers, cider & perry, street food, games, live music and more spread across various areas of the museum site.

There will be some changes to the layout this year, we’ll no longer have the Millowners Arms as a festival brewery bar as this is now an independent pub open full time all year round – however we expect their bar to be open during the festival in addition to our own relocated brewery bars, meaning an even bigger choice of beers and rooms to explore!

The festival is entirely organised, managed and staffed by volunteers, if you fancy joining the team the volunteering form will go online soon and watch this space for more news as things start to get organised.

One Valley, Dronfield – Saturday 6th June

There is no CAMRA real ale festival taking place in Dronfield this year and of course 3 Valleys is no more, however there is quite a list of pubs, clubs, breweries and shops putting on their own independent events on the traditional date, offering a day out in the area featuring beer, food and music.

There are two collectives putting on events:

One Valley (Dronfield town centre and Dronfield Woodhouse):

Hill Top Sports and Social Club, Blue Stoops, Coach & Horses, Hyde Park Inn, Manor House Hotel, The Underdog bar,  Jolly Farmer, Dronfield Wine World, White Swan, Victoria, Dronfield Arms and The Beer Stop. These are all either within walking distance of Dronfield railway station or served by Stagecoach bus 43.

One Valley EXTRA (surrounding villages and beyond)

The Pioneer Club in Dronfield, Miners Arms in Hundall, Drone Valley Brewery in Unstone and Jacey’s micropub on Whittington Moor. Stagecoach bus 43/44 and TM Travel bus 14/15 link these venues with Dronfield town centre, additionally a  taxi minibus service will be shuttling regularly between these venues throughout the afternoon.

Barnsley CAMRA , Elsecar – 7th to 9th May

The beer festival organised by Barnsley CAMRA in Elsecar this year has moved  from its previous home at the railway, although not very far – the 2020 event will be at Elsecar Heritage Centre, which beer lovers in the area will know as the home of Maison de Bier craft beer shop.

As ever, volunteer staff are needed!
