RAISE your glass please to a very popular Sheffield institution.
Heeley City Farm will this summer celebrate being open 30 years – and they will do it in style by launching their very own specially-brewed beer.
After all, any charity which has worked with animals and children for three decades deserves a drink.
Another city institution, The Blue Bee Brewery, in Oakland Road, Boulder Hill, has produced the pale ale.
Now it will be stocked in 30 pubs over the summer – one for each of the years which HCF has been open.
“It’s got a lovely hoppy flavour,” says Sarah Hardy, the farm’s events co-ordinator.
“I’m looking forward to finishing work on Friday and enjoying a couple but it will also be a good quirky way of raising awareness about the fact we’ve been serving the community all these years.”
The brew was launched at the farm’s local, The Sheaf View, in Gleadless Road, Heeley.
But it will also be served up in The Rutland Arms, in Brown Street, city centre, and The Cobden View, in Cobden View Road, Crookes, over the next few days.
