Our brewing story goes all the way back to 1996...

The Brewery

…When Patrick Morton along with his father Hugh decided to pursue their mutual love of fine beer and put their faith and money into creating their very own brewery. 22 years on, Pat and his wife Sue are still very much at the helm here and have developed the business into a well-known Sheffield institution.

Our brewery has grown steadily throughout its existence and we now make over 220 brewers’ barrels (that’s 880 of your typical casks you’d find in a pub!) per week of up to fifteen different beers at any one time. As well as our core range of five cask and two keg beers, we release a special brew every single week (often in cask, keg and now can!), so keep our brewers very busy. We don't make it easy but then we do like an adventure and we love coming up with new and exciting recipes.

We have a close-knit, passionate and knowledgeable team here who LOVE beer in all its forms, and this makes a huge difference in sharing ideas and means that the beers we create come about from a collaborative process. Our brewers are all highly trained and IBD qualified and each have their own areas of expertise, which is why we created the Brewers Emporium range especially for them!

We see ourselves as blending heritage and tradition with creativity and innovation, combining all the things that we love about this country’s eclectic and fast-paced beer industry. We have established Moonshine as a very popular local beer accounting for over 50% of our output, and it’s a beer we’re immensely proud of, having won multiple awards over the past 22 years. Sitting alongside this much loved flagship brew, however, in recent years we’ve really allowed our love of experimentation to shine through, with the launch of our ever evolving Brewers Emporium range, our Funk Dungeon barrel ageing and souring programme, and a move into canning establishing us firmly as part of the UK’s flourishing beer market.

Check out our beer pages for more information on what’s currently available.

We take our environmental responsibility as a business very seriously, and strive for continual improvement in this area whenever possible. Our reputation has been built on making consistently good beer, looking after our customers and not taking ourselves too seriously. As we move forward, we can't think of any reason why any of this should change!

Our Identity

We are proud to be a successful small business in and from Sheffield, based in the heart of Sheffield Antiques Quarter. Our identity was inspired by our location. We named our brewery after the district that runs along Sheffield's Sheaf Valley towards the old abbey at Beauchief (pronounced bee-chiff). Our archway logo was inspired by the frontage of Beauchief Abbey itself (which is now partially restored as a church). Much of our identity is inspired by the Abbey, like our use of language and imagery, but it's all very tongue-in-cheek.

There's nothing more social than beer!
