The Bear

The Bear on Abbeydale Road recently celebrated their first birthday. The bar has gone from strength to strength since winning last years’ Pints of Sheffield Battle of the Boozers, and already feels like a long-established venue on the Sheffield beer scene.

After a bit of a spruce up for the bar, everything was ready for a celebration weekend that included beer, food and music. A collaboration brew with Loxley Brewery, “On A Wing & A Bear” sold out in 6 hours, which pleased the brewery to such an extent they generously bought everyone a pint!

To keep everyone’s thirst going, food was provided at various times by Dough Truck Pizza, and Four Corners Canteen.

Matt has built up a loyal following in the area, with regular tap takeovers and Meet The Brewer sessions and they came out in force to celebrate with him. Here’s to another year.
