AND if The Sheffield Brewery Company are one of the real ale trendsetters, here’s a couple jumping on the good booze band wagon...
Two more micro-breweries are to be opened in the city in 2012 - the 11th and 12th to be located here.
Henry’s bar, in Cambridge Street, city centre, and Forum Cafe Bars Limited - owners of five pubs across the city including The Forum, Common Room and Old House all in Devonshire Street - will both launch their own labels.
It will confirm the city’s growing reputation as the real ale capital of the UK.
“It’s under construction in the back of the bar,” says Mark Simmonite, owner of Henry’s. “It will be called Aardvark - mainly because it will put us first in the Good Beer Guide.”
The brewery will produce 15 barrels every brew with two jobs created.
And Forum Cafe Bars, owned by Kane Yeardley, has already piloted a beer, First Born, from their new North Star Brewery, based in Abbeydale.
