Steel City 46 - Sheffield Beer & Cider Festival 2022

Kelham Island Museum, Sheffield

Wed 19 Oct 2022 until Sat 22 Oct 2022

After a couple of years off for Covid, we’re back at Kelham Island Museum for our 46th annual beer and cider festival from Wednesday 19 to Saturday 22 October 2022.

As always, the event is organised, run and staffed entirely by volunteers who do so to share their passion for good beer, cider and perry. And we bring you a massive selection of them all served in your commemorative glass. The festival also features live music, street food, traditional pub games and more in a wonderfully atmospheric venue.

The range runs to over 300 different drinks to choose from. On the beer front we feature a whole variety of styles across cask, keg, bottle and can from the traditional styles like mild, bitter and stout right through to modern IPAs, sours and more. On the cider & perry bar it is all your proper farmhouse style still ciders and perries made from fermented freshly pressed apple or pear juice with a number of small artisan producers featured as well as some of your more well known names.

We aim to have them all available when we first open Wednesday night and will remain on sale until they run out. The list will be published here closer to the time when confirmed.

To keep things easy and secure for our volunteers and speed up service a little, our festival bars only accept tokens. You can buy tokens from the token desks around the festival (we accept payment for tokens by cash or card) and the admission package includes enough to get your first drink. Don’t worry if you don’t spend them all, we can refund up to £5 worth of unused tokens (or you can donate them to charity). Third party traders such as the food stalls and Millowners Arms accept cash or card as normal.

Note as a 4 day event we only have a limited quantity of each so it is a reduced choice on the final day of the event, however there should still be a decent selection!
