Steel City beer & cider festival 2018

Recommended Posts

That surely has to be one of the best keg lists in the country for an official CAMRA festival. If I go I'll be enjoying both keg and cask :D

I'll be there Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoon.

 

I hear our esteemed Lord Mayor has accepted an invitation to be there on the Wednesday as well.

Only a week away now so here is more info....

 

SHEFFIELD CAMRA'S 44TH ANNUAL STEEL CITY BEER & CIDER FESTIVAL

- over 250 different beers on cask, keykeg, can and bottle including some gluten free and vegan options

- 48 different ciders and perries

- traditional pub games

- live music

- street food

- CAMRA book stall

- CAMRA membership & information stand

 

The venue is the atmospheric Kelham Island Industrial Museum with bars spread across the upper hall, Brearley Room, Millowners Arms and marquee with hot food stalls in the Victorian courtyard. The steam powered river Don beam engine will also be fired up at set times over the week.

 

The museum is surrounded by many great pubs and bars to explore after the festival. It is easy to get to - 5 minutes walk from Shalesmoor tram stop (Blue or Yellow tram routes) or there are bus stops on Nursery Street and Gibralter Street. Alternatively it is walkable from the City Centre.

 

Opening hours and admissions:

 

Wednesday 10th October - open 5pm-11pm. Free entry.

Thursday 11th October - open 12pm-11pm. Entry £2 (free for CAMRA members)

Friday 12th October - open 12pm-11pm. Entry £3 before 5pm, £5 after 5pm (£1/£2 for CAMRA members).

Saturday 13th October - open 11am-10pm. Entry £3 (£1 for CAMRA members).

 

In addition to the entry fee, you will need a festival branded glass costing £2. If you do not wish to keep it you can return the glass on exit and get the deposit refunded. Printed programmes are available for 50p a copy.

 

Note Friday night gets very busy and the venue hits capacity early evening at which point a one in one out system applies, we advise arriving early to avoid queuing.

 

Also note card payments cannot be taken at the festival, just cash. Nearest ATM is at Tesco Express at the end of Alma Street.

 

Friday night is also fancy dress night, this years theme is totally 1980s.

 

Live entertainment programme:

Thursday 8pm - The Steve French Band

Friday 6:30pm - James Taplin & Mick Holmes

Friday 9pm - Highway Child

Saturday 1:30pm - Kelham Island Rapper

Saturday 2pm - Loxley Silver Band

Saturday 3:30pm -Kelham Island Rapper

Saturday 4pm - James Taplin & Mick Holmes

Saturday 6pm - Gamsu Rhythm & Blues Revue

 

All the beers that are ready to serve go on sale when the festival opens on Wednesday night and once they are gone they are gone, therefore please be aware that the final day of the festival on Saturday it is likely to be a reduced range, however there should still be a reasonable choice.
