This year’s craft beer festival will have more than 300 craft and keg beers, tastings and pairings plus entertainment at IceSheffield from March 16 to 19.

Meanwhile Sheffield Beer Week events will take place to compliment the festival - at venues including the Sheffield Tap, Hop Hideout on Abbeydale Road, the Red Deer on Pitt Street, Sentinel Brewhouse and tap room on Shoreham Street. Jules Gray, Sheffield Beer Week founder, said:“Sheffield has a local and international beer identity. The New York Times even cited it as Britain’s best beer city so this is a great opportunity to shout about that.”

Tickets for BeerX are £8 in advance, £10 on the door. Visit wegottickets and SIV websites.

OMAR LOVES BUTTIES

Top Spanish TV chef Omar Allibhoy is bringing a taste of Spain to Meadowhall - but he may take Britain’s chip butty back with him.

Omar, who hosted a pop up supper at Tramshed before the opening of Tapas Revolution this month, plans to share the revelation with his staff.

GRANDMA’S PIE ON MENU

Head chef Mark Bailey knew just where to look for an upper-crust option for British Pie Week - his grandma Hilda’s recipe.

Steak and Stilton pie is the star dish at Ferndale Garden Centre Cafe in Coal Aston until March 13. 
Mark said: “My grandma Hilda’s steak and stilton version was her family’s favourite for decades, especially for Sunday lunch.”
