Kelham Island Tavern hosts Sheffield Beer Week themed pub quiz

The Kelham Island Tavern marked Sheffield Beer Week by hosting a pub quiz themed around the week long beer bonanza. 

The quiz consisted of questions centring around beer or with answers that shared its name with a beer or alcohol.

There was also a special blind beer tasting bonus round where contestants had to blindly taste six different beers and identify whether each beverage was a stout, a mild or a porter. 

The reward for the winning team was a very fitting one, a large tab at the bar for free beer.

Phil Mccarthy, 53, from Broomhall, who participated in the quiz, said: “It was great fun, I quite often attend the pub quizzes here but I particularly enjoyed the Beer Week theme. Me and my mates never win but its always a good laugh.”

He added: “It’s great to see Sheffield and Yorkshire celebrating its brewing roots.”

This is Sheffield’s 9th year celebrating Beer Week, this year’s version started on Monday the 6 March and ends on the 12 March.

This year’s instalment of Sheffield Beer Week centres around a key strand of “going back to our beer roots”, focusing on Sheffield beers brewed within the city region.

Themes of the event include community and heritage, beer and food – with additional strands including International Women’s Day events.

Jules Gray, the organiser of Sheffield Beer Week, said: ”Beer tourism is a developing area with positive impacts to the city and wider economy.”

She added: ”The aim of Sheffield Beer Week is to bring additional visitors to the city.”

There are still many more events set to happen as part of Sheffield Beer Week ranging from beer tastings to brewery tours, there is even a 5k run which is followed by a social event at a pub.

Throughout the week, the taps of a lot of the participating pubs will be taken over by local British beer.
