BAR SPONSORS: BRADFIELD BREWERY
Based on a busy working farm in the picturesque village of Bradfield in the Peak District, BRADFIELD BREWERY have gone from milking 100 cows a day to brewing over 100,000 pints of beer a week!
The brewery sprang to life with completion of its first Brew on 26th April 2005 and the brews have continued to flow ever since. Their range of finest traditional cask ales, brewed using their own source of natural spring water, includes the award winning Farmers Blonde and the ever popular seasonal ale, Farmers Belgian Blue.
Servicing the North of England with direct deliveries to pubs and wholesalers, the Brewery also serves up it’s Farmers Ale range from three of its own Brewery Pubs. The Nags Head at Loxley became the original brewery tap when the Brewery took ownership in 2008.
Ten years later, in October 2018 the King & Miller became the 2nd, with the Wharncliffe Arms in Wharncliffe Side joining the lineup of pubs shortly after in November 2019.
At a Bradfield Brewery pub you can enjoy Farmers Ales at just £2.50 a pint, alongside a family & dog friendly warm welcome! The Brewery celebrated its 5000th Brew in 2019 with a Farmers 5K Brew, now available as part of its permanent range in bottles, it is a popular addition to the range!

BAR SPONSORS: LOXLEY BREWERY.
Using exclusive access to our on site spring, Loxley Brewery have been brewing top quality ales since March 2018. Things are about to get more exciting, as we bring keg ales into our world, on top of our cask and bottles!
As a small micro-brewery we are up to big things, such as events across Yorkshire including ‘Illuminate the Gardens’ which we are super excited about. We can’t wait to get back out on the road serving our tasty ales after months of being locked away.
On the bar, you could come across our 4% Classic Blonde ‘Revill’, hopped with just the right amount of American hops to give it a zesty zing. Or if you prefer a Yorkshire Bitter, give our Halliday a try, at 4% with a solid malt base. Looking for something a bit stronger? Gunson, our ever-popular Citra IPA could be on the bar at 4.8%. Gunsons character is derived from a mixture of both Citra and other American hops.
Our eye-catching Brewery logo, a crow, was originally drawn as part of a college project by our now
assistant brewer, Christian Wesley.
We can’t wait to see new and familiar faces very soon.

BAR SPONSORS: HEIST BREW Co.
Heist Brew Co are bringing ‘beer you believe in’, and the perfect bar, to Kelham’s vibrant scene this summer. The venue, located by The Gardeners Rest, Kelham Flea, SteelYard and Cutlery Works is set to open in July, over a year behind schedule. Two bars, one on-site brewery, thirty taps (craft beer, lager & cider), Heist Brew Co. spirits, wine, burgers from Slap & Pickle, coffee & a brunch menu, arcade games and events open six days a week!
Adam & Dan, who founded the brewery four years ago have been planning it for much longer. The Heist Brew Co. story begins in Clowne, Chesterfield where the pair wanted to replicate the beers they have tasted from around the world so they launched a crowdfunder, raised £20k, started brewing and opened up their own tap room. The beers were a success, they needed to upscale and found the perfect home, a warehouse in Neepsend. The move couldn’t have been at a worse time as lockdown was enforced just as they shut down the Clowne brewery.
After troubled restarts on the renovation project and delays things are finally taking shape. On the bar there will be 30 draft lines. Ten beers brewed in-house, five permanent lines from other UK breweries, one from Hungry and a rotation of craft beers, lagers and ciders that you won’t find elsewhere in the city. They’ll also be serving their own spirits (inc. vodka, gin, rum & whiskey) as well as old school soft drinks.
Open from 10am Tuesday to Sunday so you can pop in for a coffee in the daytime, and Slap & Pickle will be serving up (arguably the best) burgers & loaded fries too!
There’s gluten free & vegan options for both food & drink.
The fun doesn’t stop there…
They have arcade games, grabbers (with cans & merch to win), 2p machines and a huge Sheffield Steel shufl board making it hard to do a Kelham pub crawl when you could spend all night here. P.S. It’s also dog friendly!
