The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Sheffield Beer Week 2022 kicks off on 7 March, marking seven packed days of unique beer tastings, walks, tap takeovers, meet-the-brewer sessions, brewery tours, online talks, exhibitions, food matching menus, and more.

Jules Gray of Hop Hideout is at the helm. Each year Jules encourages pubs, booze shops and breweries across the city to do something special for Sheffield Beer Week, to really show off the very best of the Sheffield beer scene.

Previous Sheffield Beer Week themes return for 2022, including Beer and Food, Community, and Heritage. Extra strands in this year's programme include a collaboration with Harrogate Beer Week, a focus on creating welcoming spaces for everyone in the beer scene with Out & About, International Women's Day events, and a celebration of access to green spaces under the banner of The Outdoor City.

The 2022 programme will be a mix of online and in-person events. There'll be an exploration of brewing research with leading international professionals; beer and history walks; a running and beer social; and a look at the Right to Roam campaign to mark the 90th anniversary of the Kinder Mass Trespass.

See our highlights for Sheffield Beer Week 2022 below.
