Sheffield-based Abbeydale Brewery is to host its biggest ever event in its 23-year history – and the first in brand new premises.
Taking place over three sessions on Saturday April 6 and Sunday 7, the beer festival will be hosted at the brewery’s new 7426 square feet of extra space which joins on to the existing base just off Abbeydale Road.
Investment has already been made into new equipment, with four new tanks recently installed to allow an increase in output along with the development of Abbeydale’s new lager, Heresy.
The brewery team intend the event to be the biggest yet, encompassing their new space and allowing ticket holders the opportunity to see the progress that Abbeydale Brewery has made on their recent push for expansion
The brewers at Abbeydale have been working hard to provide an extensive line up of beers including some one-off exclusives created especially for the event, alongside a small selection of special beers from guest breweries.
The event also offers music from local band SPG, food (including vegan and gluten free options) from Get Wurst, the opportunity to go on a brewery tour, and even Abbeydale’s popular Moonshine pale ale available straight from the tank.
Director and brewery owner Pat Morton said: “We want this to be a real celebration of the journey we’ve been on over our 23-year history.
“At the first event we held here almost two years ago, where we shared our need to expand, the overwhelming feedback was that people wanted us to stay in this area.
“Our community is really important to our identity, and we’re delighted that our recent expansion means we can remain at the heart of it for many years to come.”
Tickets are available priced at £7-8 (plus booking fee) from ticketing platform Party For the People, who donate a portion of their profits to charity.
Tickets include entry, a bespoke stainless steel reusable pint pot, and your first drink.
