Festival guide

Below is a guide to beer festivals in or near Sheffield that we are aware of over the coming weeks. While we believe the information is correct, we advise checking with the venue/organisers before making any special journeys.

CAMRA festival listings can also be found on the national CAMRA events page and commercial festivals on aletalk.

Note – currently due to Covid-19 restrictions very few beer festivals are taking place. We look forward to listing them here again when something approaching normality resumes and such events can safely and practically operate, in the meantime please support local pubs and breweries where you can, we’ll keep our news pages up to date with how they are operating.
