Situated at the heart of the event, the Fountain Bar offers a selection of the city’s most popular ales from our enviable range of independent breweries, as well as some from further afield.
The Fountain Bar is open from 11.00am – 6.00pm each day of the food festival and breweries on offer this year include:
Moonshine: Their flagship beer, first brewed in 1996 and a firm favourite of Sheffield ever since. A beautifully balanced pale ale with a distinctive floral aroma, citrus flavours and a thirst-quenching finish. 4.3%
Heathen: A wonderfully refreshing American Pale Ale showcasing the wonderful Mosaic hops from America. Bursting with grapefruit and tropical flavours alongside a delicious punchy bitterness. 4.1%
Farmers Blonde: A very pale brilliant Blonde beer with citrus and summer fruit aromas, making it an extremely refreshing and ‘easy drinking’ ale. 4.0%
Farmers Peach Ale: A light rosey ale with a Peach and citrus flavour and a refreshing taste. 3.9%
Kelham Island Brewery
KIB One: a pale light and refreshing ale, it is not overly hoppy but quite subtle 4.2%
Pale Rider: The legendary golden hoppy pale ale, an award winning beer from its earliest days and still with the same great taste today. 5.2%
On The Edge Brewery
This year, the Fountain Bar also includes beers from a special guest microbrewery. With the capacity to make just 2 casks of beer at a time, On The Edge Brewery make unique one off beers using a wide range of yeast, hops and malts. They have won 6 awards, (most recently Silver Award for Speciality beer at the Rotherham CAMRA ale and music festival at Magna in 2017) and sell beer to pubs such as The Shakespeare, Guzzle and The Mallard (Worksop). They will be producing two special edition beers for this year’s Sheffield Food Festival, one of which will be vegan – look out on our social media for opportunity to win some free pints to enjoy at the event. With only two casks of each beer available, make sure you get in quick as once they’re gone, they’re gone!
Cavendish: a beautifully balanced blonde with crisp, zingy grapefruit flavours powering through. 5.0%
Pivo: Lubelski and Amethyst hopped continental lager style beer. Crisp and dry with more body than a traditional lager. Light fruit notes are dominant towards the end. 4.8%
