Experience Sheffield City Centre Beer

Sheffield’s reputation for beer has grown to almost the same heights as its reputation for steel. The city is home to over 20 breweries, and a 2016 report found 400 beers on sale in its many characterful pubs on any typical day. Naturally, then, the city centre is a great destination for enthusiasts of real ale and craft beer.

Next time you’re looking to enjoy a big match in Sheffield, head down to one of these sports-fanatic pubs or bars – including student hangouts like the Graduate and the Cav, and a few places where you can shoot pool with pals, including the huge Common Room.

This guide is published by Sheffield BID. In 2015, over 500 businesses in Sheffield city centre collectively decided to invest in improving their environment. They wanted a busier, more vibrant city centre. They wanted a city centre that’s cleaner, safer, and easier to access and navigate. And they wanted a stronger voice. That’s where Sheffield BID comes in. The BID (Business Improvement District) is the very centre of Sheffield — marked out by the boundary of the old inner city ring road. Within the city centre, Sheffield BID’s five-year action plan is to deliver projects and services across all sectors to enhance both the physical and trading environment.
