FOR those with a taste for real ale and craft beers, Richard Brownhill is inviting you to join the club.

The manager at the Cellar Door pub at the Beauchief Hotel in Abbeydale Road South has launched what he believes is Sheffield’s first Beer Club, hosting monthly gatherings to sample and learn about lesser-known brews.

Food – matched to each ale – will be served.

The club will run on the first Monday of every month from February 4, based initially at the Cellar Door but with a view to expansion to other pubs in the city.

“We’re out of the city here and sometimes it can be quiet during the week,” said Richard, aged 25, a Hallam University history graduate, who has run the pub since April.

“So the original idea came about as a way of getting new people down. But it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while and, if it goes well, we’ll be looking at starting a membership scheme where we put on special tours to breweries, and perhaps set up a card scheme where, after trying nine different beers, you might get a 10th free.”
