About Sheffield Hopcast
Welcome to the Sheffield Hopcast: Unpretentious beer talk from the Steel City.
The Hopcast started in 2018 with the aim of reflecting Sheffield's ever growing beer scene blended with some good old fashioned pub talk.
Founders Adam and James came up with the idea - unsurprisingly - at a beer festival a couple of years ago. Finally January 2018 saw it become reality.
Each month we're based at a different venue around the city, and get to know the people behind our favourite pubs.
We also catch up with a local brewery in our Meet The Brewer feature - and of course we try out lots of new beers to help you decide what should be next on your shopping list.
Our beer panel consists of:
- Sean Clarke - owner of Beer Central in Sheffield Moor Market
- Laura Rangeley - beer blogger and the only one of us who actually works for a brewery
- Chris Holt - Sheffield Star journalist and beer enthusiast
- Rich Davies - social media expert and general beer drinker
We use the beers we're sampling to help us come up with some unusual talking points - have a listen and you'll see what we mean.
