Enjoy a pint at the Head of Steam on International Beer Day

On International Beer Day, we feature wheelchair-accessible places to celebrate beer in Sheffield.

The Head Of Steam, Sheffield

It’s the first Friday of August, which can only mean one thing: it’s International Beer Day. The purpose of International Beer Day is threefold:

  • To gather with friends and enjoy the deliciousness that is beer.
  • To celebrate the dedicated men and women who brew and serve our beer.
  • To bring the world together by celebrating the beers of all nations and cultures on this one remarkable day.

The first International Beer Day took place in August 2008 and it is celebrated in over 200 cities across the world. To help the celebrations in Sheffield get off to a good start, we wanted to highlight great places to enjoy a pint of local or craft beer in Sheffield that are also wheelchair accessible. As part of this, we spoke to Head of Steam.

The Head Of Steam Sheffield

How would you describe Head of Steam?

The Head of Steam Sheffield is a spacious venue that boasts a large rear terrace. Looking out onto Tudor Square across from the historic Lyceum Theatre and Crucible, the venue boasts a wide array of beers, from a simple pint of lager or IPA to the outrageous sour beers available today.

We are a dog-friendly pub with a water station and doggie treats to boot.

Our food ranges from gyros and burgers to pizzas and sharers, with something for everybody, meat eaters and vegans alike.

With live music on Mondays and deals throughout the week, there’s always something going on.

What can customers expect from your beer?

We provide an extensive range of beers from session IPAs all the way through to some of the quirkiest sour beers you could think of.

Our fridges are stocked full of some fantastic offerings from all around the world all the way back to our dear Sheffield.

We have a wide range of non-alcoholic beers, gluten-free and vegan options available too. And we provide a CAMRA discount on all of our cask options.

Which of your beers would you recommend people try on International Beer Day?

For International Beer Day we recommend trying the Human Cannonball DIPA as part of the Magic Rock Cannonball Event.

If your alcohol use is causing problems in your life, the Alcohol Service (Sheffield Treatment and Recovery Team) or Project 6 may be able to help.
