    January sale

    On our 2 year anniversary episode we are back at Bar Stewards with Charlie and Al.

    As money can be tight in January, we were each tasked with finding a great beer for under £3.50.

    We also hear from some of our social media followers about what beer they would choose on a budget and finally have a chat about our favourite breweries from the past year.

Craft Beer Essential Listen

Brilliantly crafted (sorry...) pod embracing everything good about the craft beer revolution - not only in Sheffield but around the UK and further afield. Intelligent discussion of new beers, fascinating insights from independent breweries and micropubs and a varied and well-informed panel of tasters.

Warning - listening may lead to development of a healthy thirst.
