Straight from the Indie Beer Feast team - here's their update on this new one-day independent beer festival launching in Sheffield during Sheffield Beer Week. Saturday 10th March 2018:
''With an emphasis on great quality, independent, craft beer from the UK and around the globe, Indie Beer Feast has its sights set on launching a new one day beer celebration in their hometown of Sheffield. Starting small and focused, but with an ambition to grow over the coming years. The appetite and support for good beer in Sheffield is evident and it’s the right time to launch a beer festival, kicking off Sheffield Beer Week 2018 in style. The add-on element to Indie Beer Feast are a number of brewery bars which means festival attendees can chat to the breweries direct. In addition to a curated selection of street food vendors bringing the ‘feast’ component to life. Indie Beer Feast is also excited to work with the team at the iconic grade-listed Abbeydale Picture House, a 1920s cinema being brought back in to use by Sheffield ‘s CADS. Being able to host a beer festival in such a wonderful, characterful building will add to the ambience of the event hugely.
Event Manager, Jules Gray shares, “I’m extremely pleased to be launching this new beer festival in my hometown. The focus is on great craft beer, good food and good times. Keeping it simple with the focus on flavoursome beer and delicious food, in the beautifully atmospheric Abbeydale Picture House”.
With announcements and tickets being launched in December via Tickets For Good, the first wave of breweries include Fourpure, Thornbridge, Blackjack, Abbeydale and Mad Hatter Brewing. The day will be split into two sessions, each session entry ticket price is £6.50 (plus booking fee) to include a designed festival beer glass.
