Smoke Red: Heist Brewery and Smoke BBQ collaborate on new beer

Beer and BBQ food – a match made in heaven, right? 

We have to agree, especially when you’ve got two much-loved Sheffield brands on the case!

Earlier this month, award-winning Kelham-based craft brewers Heist Brew Co and city-centre restaurant Smoke BBQ launched their collab beer Smoke Red – a devilishly good 4.5% red ale.

Exposed had the pleasure of trying the beer with a few delightfully meaty dishes from the Smoke menu – and we can confirm: it bangs.

Nicely bridging the gap between porter and bitter, the gluten-free beer is a perfect pairing with smoked meats and can be purchased both at the Smoke restaurant (St Paul’s Place) and Heist’s taproom brewery (Neepsend Lane).

Adam France, co-owner of Heist, told Exposed:  “We were approached by Smoke to produce their red ale and, as a favourite eating spot in the city, it was a no-brainer to partner up. They have literally been with us since the beginning of our journey, as they provided street food for one of our opening weekends, and we’ve been in contact ever since.  It’s important in the current climate that businesses and communities stick together and support each other instead of the dog-eat-dog mentality; it’s key to business progression and survival in such times.”

So, with BBQ season well and truly underway, what are you waiting for? Support two local businesses at the same time and grab yourself a mouthwatering pint the next time you visit Smoke BBQ.
