2016 Twitter Hours

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.

Cuckoo brewing, for some, is a controversial topic. For Dave at Steel City Brewing it’s not, it’s a way of brewing the beers he wants to make. Join us on the last day of Sheffield Beer Week with co-host Dave ‘Unpronounceable’ as we delve deeper into what cuckoo brewing is for him and find out more about Steel City beers. There will be a couple of samples of special/collab Steel City beers on offer during the Twitter Hour for those attending in person at Sentinel Brewhouse.
