Sheffield Beer Week is BACK from March 7th to 13th, and we’ve got two beers released for the occasion themed around our fantastic beery city – plus a whole host of events for you to get involved in!
In keeping with the local theme, we’re very excited to introduce our new dry hopped heritage pale ale, Sheffield Rocks (4.1%). Our homage to our hometown’s wonderful brewing history – the essence of the archetypal Sheffield beer for the twenty first century! Brewed in collaboration with local brewing legend Stuart Noble, using 100% UK ingredients and dry hopped with Pilgrim and UK Cascade. Read more here! And we’ve also re-released a familiar favourite, but with a new name and fresh new look. Huckster Cryo, our collaboration with our friends down at Kelham Island, Peddler Market, IS BACK – now part of our Brewers Emporium range as Wanderer – Cryo NEIPA (6.0%). Expect all the hazy, juicy, tropical good vibes you know and love in this pillowy New England IPA, packed with Sorachi Ace, Galaxy, Vic Secret and Ekuanot Cryo hops. Both of these new beers are available in cask, keg and can, so look out for them on bars and shelves across our city and beyond!
And we’re incredibly excited to have some real life, in person events booked in too! We’re kicking off with Indie Beer Feast, which is a fantastic precursor to everything Sheffield Beer Week has to offer, taking place on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th March at Trafalgar Warehouse in the city centre. We’re pouring alongside absolutely loads of brilliant breweries from all of the UK, as well as local favourites Lost Industry and St Mars of the Desert. Tickets are almost sold out, although there may be a limited number available on the door for each session – keep an eye on Indie Beer Feast’s Twitter page for updates!
On Tuesday 8th March, two of our very favourite things come together in a special Beer & Snack pairing at the Riverside, Kelham Island. Five keg beers (exact details to be announced, but we can confirm our Sheffield themed releases will be featured), each paired with a delicious tasty treat! Our Dan will be on hand to talk you through each pairing and tell you all about the brewery and our beers. Head here to get your tickets!
And we’re taking a little bit of Sheffield Beer Week on tour, as on Thursday 10th March we’re heading down to London! The magnificent King’s Arms in Bethnal Green is hosting us for a Meet the Brewer and Tap Takeover. Join us from 5pm (no tickets required, just pop along!) – there’s a line up of 9 of our beers available across cask and keg, including an exclusive release of Black Mass in keg, for the first time in our 26 year history!
There’s absolutely loads going on all week across Sheffield too, so do make sure you check out the full event listings on the Sheffield Beer Week website. Team Abbeydale are sure to be out in force, so we hope to see lots of you for a beer or two!
