Everything you need to know about Sheffield Beer Week 2020
Sheffield Beer Week returns 9-15 March, with the popular citywide festival celebrating its sixth instalment in 2020.
This year, Sheffield Beer Week has decided to focus on core strands of beer, heritage and community to bring the new decade in.
With the city known globally for its brewing and nationally for its superb range of pubs serving cask ale with the care and attention it deserves, there will be a wide number of local breweries involved including Abbeydale, Sheffield Brewery Company, Lost Industry, Thornbridge, True North Brew Co and Saint Mars Of the Desert.
Representing on a national and international stage announced so far will be the likes of Arbor, Duration, Marble, Adnams (with a specific cask showcase), Torrside, Alvinne, Siren, Salt Beer Factory, Pressure Drop and Mikkeller’s wild beer arm Baghaven. Plus up-and-coming new UK breweries Vault City and Pastore Brewing and Blending.
Special collaborations will be available to sample, not to mention a special Sheffield Beer Week beer brewed for 2020’s charity partnership supporting The Friends of Edward Carpenter in collaboration with Sheffield-based LGBTQ+ beer group Out and About and Lost Industry Brewing.
Amongst the list of events taking place will be a cask ale festival at Shakespeares, pub walking tours, beer and food dinners, special pairing menus throughout the week, and of course, the ever-popular craft beer festival Indie Beer Festival taking place at Abbeydale Picture House on the weekend of 6-7 March.
