The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

The tenth Sheffield Beer Week 2024 kicks off on 4 March, marking seven packed days of beery fun.

Jules Gray of Hop Hideout is at the helm. Each year Jules 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.

The 2024 programme is themed around strands including Beer and Food, Community, Heritage, International Women's Day and 10 years of Beer Week, plus a celebration of access to green spaces alongside The Festival of the Outdoors.

There'll be unique beer tastings, walks, tap takeovers, meet-the-brewer sessions, brewery tours, exhibitions, food matching menus, and more.
