20 Oct Here’s when the first pints of Belgian Blue will be poured this year
More so than the light switch on, the Christmas Markets or a big red lorry full of pop, the true start of the Christmas season in Sheffield is marked by the site of those first glorious pints of Farmers Belgian Blue being poured.
Given that the overwhelming mood around Christmas this year is that it’s all going to be a bit miserable, thanks to all the restrictions, it’s nice to see a familiar reminder of the holiday spirit from the lovely folk up at Bradfield Brewery.
As is tradition, the first pints of Belgian Blue will be poured at the beer’s spiritual home The Nags Head, as well as their other brewery taps the King and Miller and Wharncliffe Arms, at 4pm on Thursday 29 October.
The award-winning brewery is actually bringing the beer back for the second time in 2020, after a surprise release was launched in April to help ease lockdown tensions.
The fifteenth year of the beer’s proper launch is set hit pubs across the city from next month and, as always, will also be available in small kegs and bottles.
