Taste Sheffield’s Beer Scene at Home
25 June 2020
Sheffield has a prolific reputation when it comes to producing beer and since the strength of the city’s beer scene was properly documented back in 2016, it’s only continued to get stronger.
The thirst for Sheffield beer didn’t disappear when you couldn’t physically buy a pint over the bar and lots of businesses have been working hard to keep the good stuff flowing, adapting to offer take outs, deliveries and mail orders.
While we’re all excited for pubs to reopen in time for the Great British summer, things still aren’t quite ‘business as normal’ just yet. Lots of pubs in the city have been able to introduce social distancing measures, making the most of outdoor spaces and beers gardens, and have implemented these along with dedicated booking systems. Some of the cosier pubs and micro pubs are just that bit too small to make it viable for them to reopen in this way though, so it's still not as simple to pop out for a pint as it was pre-lockdown.
It’s also completely understandable if some people don’t feel quite ready to venture out there, but don’t let that put you off tasting what the city has offer! With the help of Sheffield Beer Week organiser, Jules Gray, we’ve summarised the shops, pubs and breweries that are making sure you can still enjoy a taste of the Sheffield beer scene in the comfort of your own home…
