Sheffield University Association visit to Kelham Island Brewery

Alumni at the Kelham Island Brewery

On 17 November, over 30 alumni and friends attended a sell-out event at The Fat Cat pub and Kelham Island Brewery.

Dave Wickett (MA 1976) updated guests on how he set the brewery up 20 years before – and what makes the Kelham Island beers special (expensive quality ingredients and dedicated staff).

Guests were treated to a range of different beers – including Centenary Ale, brewed to celebrate the University’s 100th Charter Centenary. Dave Wickett then conducted two groups of alumni around the Brewery in order to see how the beer they had just sampled had been brewed.
