A Decade of Beer Week Celebrations in Sheffield

4th to 10th March

Can you believe it’s our tenth annual Sheffield Beer Week!?! 2024 is going to be an exciting year. Through a challenging climate, Sheffield’s beer businesses have survived in a buoyant local market. 2024 sees the revisiting of Sheffield University’s commissioned ‘Beer Report’ which has broadcaster Pete Brown reviewing the regional beer landscape once again. Look out for a launch during

Sheffield Beer Week. Key Beer Week strands include ‘Beer and Food’, ‘Community’ and ‘Heritage’; with ongoing organic strands including International Women’s Day events, 10 years of Beer Week, and celebrating our access to vital green spaces alongside The Festival of the Outdoors. Visit Sheffield’s The Festival of the Outdoors has become a vibrant month of annual activities in March. There’ll even be a running and beer event which includes a brewery tour during the beer week from Triple Point Brewery, Hop Hideout and Run Talk Run. Heist Brew Co are also collaborating with The Foundry Climbing Centre on a beer to go alongside their beer and climbing social.

There’ll be more special beers being released for Beer Week including Triple Point Brewery collaborating with Indie Beer Feast, Sheffield Beer Week and The Festival of the Outdoors to highlight the South Yorkshire green spaces and Peak District campaigner Ethel Haythornthwaite. Lost Industry and Thornbridge are both brewing their own International Women’s Collab Brew Day beers. While Abbeydale are re-releasing their 2023 Sheffield Beer Week collab Cloud Peak due to demand; this year it will include a limited art print alongside. Beer shop Hop Hideout is collaborating with Heist and Indie Beer Feast on a super limited sour-style beer. While new microbar The Wonky Labrador are collaborating with Triple Point on a birthday beer. Just to name a few!

With a influx of breweries heading to Indie Beer Feast, you’ll find a number of tap takeovers and meet the brewers happening at venues like Pangolin (Turning Point Brew Co), The Beer House S6 (Amity Brew Co) and Kelham Island Tavern (Siren), and more to be announced. The Rutland Arms, The Crow Inn, Beer Central, The Riverside, Heist Brew Co Tap, Shakespeares, Hop Hideout, The Wonky Labrador and The Old Shoe have all started to plan events and will be announcing in the coming weeks.

Brewery tap openings so far confirmed include Saint Mars of the Desert, Fuggle Bunny Brew House, Heist Brew Co, Triple Point and Tapped Brew Co.

Beer historian Dr Christina Wade, who specialises in the hidden histories of women in the brewing trade, will be launching her new book – The Devil’s in the Draught Lines (published by CAMRA Books). Hop Hideout will be celebrating with a collaborative beer alongside Dr Wade and Torrside Brewing which takes its inspiration from historical women’s recipes featured in the book. In addition to hosting a Queer Brewing tap takeover (owner Lily was commissioned to take photographs for the book).

On the weekend of 1st to 2nd March, to start the week, Sheffield’s craft beer festival, I ndie Beer Feast is back at Trafalgar Warehouse. It’s a celebration of great independent craft beer with brewery bars, street food, low intervention wines and fine cider. The beer festival champions and supports The Everyone Welcome initiative.

Jules Gray, Sheffield Beer Week founder shared that, “A decade of showcasing great independent beer in Sheffield is something to be hugely proud of as a city and community. A city with a long-standing heritage of beer and brewing, that goes back hundreds of years. It’s a testament to everyone involved and everyone who supports the beer scene. Beer is part of the city’s fabric, it’s culture, it’s heritage, jobs, economy and keeping the high street vibrant.”
