Sheffield Beer Week
Heather, Assistant Manager at the Rutland Arms, which will be hosting many events throughout Sheffield Beer Week,

Sheffield Beer Week returns for its fourth year from 12 – 18 March for a city-wide celebration of all things beer, focused on supporting independent beer businesses and breweries in Sheffield and beyond.

Since it began in 2015, Sheffield Beer Week has grown into a huge event visited by beer enthusiasts across the UK, focusing on different strands and themes each year. In 2018, Sheffield Beer Week is focusing on beer, beer and food, and community and heritage.

In celebration of 100 years since the first women were given the right to vote, Sheffield Beer Week is also celebrating women in the beer industry, going back to basics by focusing four hubs on the main ingredients of beer, and introducing the Yorkshire Beer Photography Trail.

Here are just a few of the Sheffield Beer Week events happening in #SheffAfter5, for the full programme of events head to the Sheffield Beer Week website.
