A wet day in Sheffield with Wee Beefy

Lord Nelson, Arundel Street, Sheffield
On Saturday I caught up with someone who really knows the Sheffield beer scene.
I may have gone to school and walked the hills there for more years than I care to admit to, but I'm a novice in the Valley of Beer's vast geography when compared to master cartographer and Steel City blogger Wee Beefy.
The Beer Engine, off London Road
Yesterday, despite the deluge, we did a tour of six city centre pubs. Three of them were new to me: The Lord Nelson, on Arundel Street (close to The Rutland Arms), The Beer Engine on Cemetery Road and Portland House on Ecclesall Road, which is Welbeck Abbey Brewery's first bar.
All six had something different to offer, not just in beer but in terms of drinking experience. I thought it was an excellent mixture of something old and something new.
Wee Beefy even threw in a free art show as we trudged the sodden streets.
A fine write up about all the places we visited and what we drank can be found over on Wee Beefy's site. Click here
