Brewery Bits

Sheffield Brewery Company are having regular film nights on Thursdays from 26th March in association with Kelham Island Film Club and their bar is now open every weekend, from 4pm Fridays and 2pm Saturdays. Brewery tours are being relaunched soon.

Neepsend are on the move! The brewery tap session held on the February Peddlers weekend was the final one on the old site and at the time of writing the floor at the new premises was complete and they were about to move all the kit! The new brewery isn’t far away, just around the corner at 92 Burton Street, the same complex where Peddlers Night Market takes place on the first weekend of the month.

The latest beer from Acorn Brewery is “Bullseye”, a 4.5% ABV rich red coloured bitter brewed with dark Crystal Malt and English Challenger hops.

A new micro brewery, Grizzly Grains, has started up, using the old kit from Crosspool Ale Makers. Having sold the kit, Crosspool Ale Makers are looking for a  brewery to cuckoo at in order to scale up their production.

Recent brews from Blue Bee include a couple of beers celebrating particular hop varities, Rakau Pale at a sessionable 3.9% ABV and a still fairly sensible Centennial American Pale Ale at 4.7% ABV.
