2017 Twitter Hour

The idea of ‘Twitter Hours’ during Sheffield Beer Week is to enable people to get involved in beery conversation online and/or in person. #SheffBeerWeek is all about socialising and sharing information.

Follow @SheffBeerWeek and our partners below. Use the hashtag #SheffBeerWeek and join in online during the dates and times listed.

A number of Twitter Hours have a venue listed which means you can attend the venue and join in online too. Please do tweet us if you attend the venue events in person, it means we’ll know you’re there to say hello.
