We are proud to announce that we will be the title sponsors of the Sheffield Steeldogs ice hockey team.
After many years following ice hockey last season was our first watching the Sheffield Steeldogs. We were so impressed at the professionalism, work ethic and all round entertainment that when the opportunity to become the title sponsors arose we were more than please to be involved with such a commited team of players and staff. We are looking forward to the start of the new season in September and watching a team made up of mainly local talent build upon the success they enjoyed last year.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg paid a visit to the brewery to officially open the new 40 barrel brew plant.
The brewery was awarded a certificate of recognition by the All Party Parlimentary Beer Group for having Farmers Brown Cow on sale at the Strangers Bar in the House of Commons in May. It was suggested that Nick Clegg would formally present the certificate to the brewery and while presenting could officially open the new brew plant.
Farmers Blonde was voted Sheffield's Best Brewed beer 2011 at the 37th Steel City Beer Festival. The festival held at Ponds Forge Sports Centre in September hosted a blind tasting session to decide the festival winners. Farmers Steel Cow also won Gold in the Best Bitter Category.
The brewery boys took part in The Kinder Beer Barrel Callenge on Saturday 10th Septmeber.
They had to carry a full 9 gallon cask from the Snake Pass pub over Kinder Scout to Edale. They did it in 1 hour and 4 minutes raising money for local Edale charities.
Bradfield Brewery entered the brewery dray into Hope show.
This is the first competition for the dray which is ex-wards and was purchased by the brewery in 2010. It is now painted in Bradfield Brewery colours.
Tours held 15th April
The Bradfield Brewery tug of war team went to Mirfield Show on Sunday 22nd August and won yet another trophy this year.
It must be the beer!!
China and Charlie lead the parade at the nearby Stannington Carnival on Saturday 10th July .
It is the first time in nearly 2 years that the pair have been to such a public event and like true professionals they took it all in their stride!
Bradfield Brewery made their first beer delivery by horse drawn dray to The Nags Head pub. Charlie and China made the mile journey from the brewery on Tuesday 15th June.
After a busy year at Bradfield Brewery we have reached a significant milestone - our 1000th brew called Farmers A Grand Brew it is a 4.4% ruby coloured bitter with a distinctive chocolate finish.
Anyone who visited the Bakewell show in August may have caught sight of our Bradfield Brewery horse drawn dray it was making it's first outing in the brewery's own livery.
It was entered into the heavy horse singles class and lined up with 11 other competitors. The dray was driven for us by Mary Fuller who is a very experienced horse women we came a respectable fifth place and would like to thank Mary and the Fuler family for all their help. We are delighted with the results!
The dray which is an ex-Adnams is now black with gold edging and red writing, we also have 3 old wooden beer barrels on the back to give it that authentic feel, these however will be replaced with full steel casks when we make the first delivery to The Nags Head.
It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing away of Massey the brewery Shire horse. He was away being trained when he became ill and died.
Massey came to the brewery in September 2006 accompanied by his mother as he was only 4 months old. He soon became quite a character everyone at the brewery loved having him around he was also a hit with the visitors who loved watching him down a pint out of his own engraved glass and not spilling a drop.
In March 2008 Massey was stolen out of his stable next to the brewery and had it not been for the media coverage we might have lost him then. A eagle eyed member of the public recognised his picture in the paper and informed the police, he returned to the brewery a week after being stolen apparently no worse for wear.
After taking over the Nags Head Massey's image has been used as the pub logo in fact a new front door soon to be fitted has an engraving in the glass of Massey and as it has turned out will be a lasting reminder of a much loved friend.
On a happier note before Massey died we purchased two Percheron heavy legged horses along with an ex Adnams brewery dray. The horses named China and Charlie are 14 years old and have been doing the show circuit for years and are well used to pulling a dray. They have come to us on semi retirement the plan being to intregrate Massey into the team and help with his training, sadly this is not to be. But looking on the bright side China and Charlie are both settling in well and it seems their special treat are polos each having a full packet at once. So keep an eye out for progress on our aim to deliver beer with the pair of them.
