In the last 10 years craft beer has grown from a hipster trend to a new revolution in drinking culture and Sheffield has embraced it.
We might have over 20 independent breweries churning out the good stuff but we’ve also got a growing list of pubs and bars pouring great flavours from keg lines.
Here’s our current top 10 (it was hard to pick just 10) Best Places for Craft Beer in Sheffield.
Just up the road in West Bar is The Crow Inn, run by a dream team of Sheffield beer heads who are always sourcing some of the best beers from around the world.
They regularly host tap takeovers with exclusives and beers you’ll struggle to come across elsewhere.
The Crow Inn also have rooms upstairs, ideal for those visiting Sheffield.
Along with The Brew Foundation beers, the Ale Club has a revolving keg line full of juicy IPAs, tangy sours and hearty stouts as well as a fridge of cans full with beauty.

Pangolin Craft Beer on Middlewood Road, Hillsborough opened during the final lockdown, initially as a bottle shop however, as restrictions eased, this craft beer haven grew into somewhere you’d happily sit in and drink your way through the beers on tap before grabbing a few cans to take home.

The Rutland Arms in Sheffield City is a pub full of charm and charisma. Beer garden tick, jukebox tick, great beer, tick.
The Rutty is a key pub for Sheffield’s beer scene where you’ll come across beer that isn’t available anywhere else in the city and there’s something for every taste. Juicy pales, bitters, stouts & so much more.
When it comes to progression, look no further than Shakespeares in Shalesmoor, a traditional boozer with a dart board, table football and live music but it’s the beer that makes it loved by so many.
The pub always has a long list of exciting beers on rotation celebrating everything local and beyond. It’s a real gem and it’s just a short walk from the city centre and Kelham.
