CAMRA Beer Festival

On Thursday, the annual Sheffield beer and cider festival will begin, but in a slightly different form to their usual festival.

The Sheffield branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) have decided not to host the event at Kelham Island museum like normal due to ‘uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus situation’. Instead, this year it will be hosted as a tour around the city visiting over 40 pubs, bars and breweries.

Beer and cider lovers will be able to visit some of the participating venues and try the beer, food and entertainment they are offering for the event.
