Kelham Island Brewery - A Taste of Sheffield

An award-winning independent Sheffield brewery

A Taste of Sheffield

Kelham Island Brewery was built in 1990 in the Beer Garden of the Fat Cat in Alma Street. The first brew was in September, making Kelham Island Brewery the first new independent brewery in Sheffield in almost 100 years. Using equipment purchased from the recently closed Oxford Brewery this allowed for full mash brewing of around 10 brewers barrels every week. As demand increased the decision was taken to move to new premises and a purpose built brewery was constructed a short distance from the original brewhouse. The original brewhouse was converted to a visitors centre and in March 1999 the new brewery opened with a five fold increase in capacity to 50 brewers barrels.

Brewery Tours

Our tours start with a drink in our ‘Brewery Loft Bar’. This is followed by Pie & Peas. After which there is a tour of the brewery where the brewing process is explained and you get to see how it is all done. We return back to the ‘Brewery Loft Bar’ for another drink and questions and answers.
