The 2008 Steel City Beer Festival, our 34th annual event, comes to you in a marquee in Cemetery Park, with around 100 different beers, Ciders & Perries to try.
The festival site is Cemetery Park on Montague Steet, just off Cemetery Road in Sharrow. It's just a few minutes walk from Ecclesall Road, up the hill behind the Pomona pub. Please see the Festival Website for more information, including details of bus services and mapping.

You will need to buy a souvenir festival glass when you arrive, this is the glass you will drink from for the duration of your visit. In line with the parks trust policy the festival glasses are made from toughened plastic rather than glass. Please note due to this policy we cannot allow guests to bring their own glass.
When you leave the festival you can keep the glass as a souvenir or alternatively return it to the glass stand for a refund.
It is CAMRA policy to offer oversized lined glasses where possible to guarantee full measure - however we have not been able to find a supplier that makes oversized plastic glasses, so our glasses will be pint glasses with a half pint line. If you are drinking halves you therefore have an oversize glass, if you are drinking pints please ask for a top up if you think your head is excessive.
Quality hot and cold snacks will be available from the Outside catering service provided by the Original Farmers Market Shop of Bakewell.
