Hop to it: Sheffield Beer and Cider Festival to return for another year
If any proof were needed of Sheffield’s status one of the top destinations for beer in the UK it’ll be found at Kelham Island Museum this October.
The industrial museum will once again open its doors to the Steel City Beer and Cider festival, showcasing over 200 real ales, international craft beers, traditional ciders and perries for you to sample over four days. In it’s 43rd year running, the festival sees around 5,000 fans of all things served in a pint glass descend on the museum from all over the UK, so it’s best to get in there early.
And although the beer alone might be enough to tempt you along, you can expect food stalls and live music from local bands including the Loxley Silver Band too.
This year the festival will run from the 18th – 21st October. Check out the schedule here.
