Sheffield Beer Week

Mon. 11 March 2019 — Sun. 17 March 2019

Sheffield Beer Week 2019 kicks off on 11 March, marking seven packed days of unique beer tastings, tap takeovers, meet the brewer sessions, brewery tours, exhibitions, and food matching menus. The beer will flow like wine.

Like many of the best ideas, the first Sheffield Beer Week in 2015 started as a "why not?" Julia Gray is at the helm, who'll be familiar to many drinkers in Sheffield as she – along with Beer Central, Walkley Beer Co., Starmore Boss and a handful of the more adventurous pubs – has been responsible for broadening beer fans' palettes at Hop Hideout and as a key organiser of beer-related events in the city.

Each year Julia encourages pubs, booze shops and breweries across the city to do something special for Sheffield Beer Week, to really show off the very best of the Sheffield beer scene.

For its fifth year, there'll be great local breweries such as Neepsend, Kelham Island, Thornbridge and Abbeydale on board, as well as the brand new brewery Saint Mars of the Desert. National and international breweries getting involved, meanwhile, include Wander Beyond, Wild Card Brewery and Mikkeller.

A collaboration between Fem.Ale and Hop Hideout will celebrate women working in the beer industry, while the People's Photography Trail will tackle the lack of visual representation of the diverse range of people who work in and drink beer. There'll be other collaborations with Norwich City of Ale, The Outdoor City, Sheffield CAMRA, and a Mikkeller Running Club event. And it'll all kick off the weekend before with Indie Beer Feast, bringing brilliant beers and excellent street food to Abbeydale Picture House for the second year.

Come back soon for our top picks of each day's offerings.
