Treat for beer fans as brewer visits market

Have your say

Beer buffs can meet an internationally acclaimed brewer – and sample his ales – when he drops in on Sheffield’s Moor Market.

Beer Central is hosting a Meet the Brewer event featuring Chuck Silva, from the Green Flash Brewery in California, USA, at 3pm on Friday.

The brewing expert is visiting the market on his way back to the States from Belgium.

Ale drinkers will be able to ask Chuck questions and enjoy a tasting session.

Coun Leigh Bramall said: “The fact an internationally-renowned brewmaster is choosing the Moor Market as an events venue goes to show the quality of the independent businesses we have here.

“Beer Central is a fine example of the stalls within the market that sell a quality product that food and drink connoisseurs are prepared to travel for.”

Mr Silva will give another talk at the The Shakespeare pub on Gibraltar Street at 5pm on Friday.

Sean Clarke, of Beer Central, said: “This is a real coup. We don’t often have celebrities in the world of brewing coming along to talk to our customers, hence why Chuck’s visit – all the way from California – is a rare treat.”
