Sheffield is our host city for the inaugural Beer Now conference and is an apt beer-focused place for this year’s event. Sheffield University commissioned a ‘Beer Report’ last year by writer and broadcaster Pete Brown highlighting the city’s beery landscape stating:
“The City of Sheffield has one brewery for every 23,991 people”
At the time of publishing there were 57 breweries in the Sheffield City Region. Not only is there a healthy brewing scene in Sheffield but also a vibrant landscape of great beer-loving pubs, bars, beer shops and more. Sheffield Beer Week which starts on Monday March 13, published ‘A Sheffield Beery Map’ covering 48 venues throughout the city.
On this pre-conference trail Thursday March 16, we will be exploring a number of these exciting venues, whilst joining in the fun of various Sheffield Beer Week events in this joint Beer Trail. Please join us from 6pm at our starting point, Sentinel Brewhouse, only a 10 minute walk from the Novotel Hotel (recommended base hotel). We advise you eat before the Beer Trail, as the evening itself will be quite fast paced. Sentinel is a great place to eat, offering a beer paired menu.
Jules Gray from Sheffield Beer Week will be at the venue from 5pm alongside duo and European Beer Bloggers Conference alumni Irish Beer Snobs and brewery YellowBelly Beer to host a Twitter Hour on the Irish Craft Beer Scene. They are more than happy to welcome you at the venue earlier than the official Beer Trail start if you would like to join in this event in person and online via #SheffBeerWeek.
