Reasons to be Beerful: Spotlight on Industry Tap
There’s something brewing down in the Cultural Industries Quarter, home to cosy craft beer haven Industry Tap who’ve been up and running for almost six months now.
If you’ve not had the chance to pop in and say hello yet, here are a few solid reasons why we believe it should become your next destination when seeking an interesting tipple or two.
Featuring 21 keg lines and a fridge loaded with bottles and cans, you won’t find many better stocked bars for craft beer in the city centre. Showcasing brews from some of the world’s finest craft beers brands, as well as local and UK-wide gems, there’s something here for everyone – whether you’re looking for a heady hit of hops, something a little lighter on the palate, or an alcohol-free offering. If gin is more your sort of thing, there’s a wide selection behind the bar for you to peruse.
As the tap for Lost Industry Brewing Limited, the Hillsborough-based brewery, there’s the perfect opportunity for the team to try out some exclusive small-batch brews and gauge some valuable feedback from customers. It allows the brewers to really creative, knocking out two or three kegs of experimental brews to test the water.
The Cultural Industries Quarter is fast-becoming a key city centre hotspot. Perfectly located in a central ground between Ecclesall/Abbeydale Road and the hustle and bustle of West Street, it’s the ideal stop-off for escaping the weekend commotion. It’s a friendly, cosy space inside, dog and kid-friendly (the latter until 9pm), and decorated brilliantly with quirky designs by South Yorkshire illustrator Lewis Ryan. The venue is also available for event hire – email firstname.lastname@example.org.
From meet the brewer nights to exclusive brewery tap takeovers, the bar will be hosting regular events going forward – with plenty taking place this month to celebrate Sheffield Beer Week. They’ll be hosting a city showcase of the finest Sheffield craft beers at the
beginning of the week, followed by some of best Nottingham brews, a tap takeover by Liquid Light, plus meet the brewer events with the likes of Black Iris and Neon Raptor Co. Keep an eye on their socials for the latest updates.
