Steel City 47 Beer & Cider Festival

We’re proud to be sponsoring the annual Steel City Beer & Cider Festival which returns to Kelham Island Museum for the 47th year, from Wednesday 18 to Saturday 21 October 2023.

This year visitors will find an exclusive Bradfield Brewery bar located in the Brearly Room of the museum, which is located on the ground floor, just inside the entrance.

Featuring on this year’s bar, will be:

An exclusive! The first Brew of this year’s Farmers Belgian Blue!

Our Brand new brew for the Rugby World Cup, Farmers Line Out!

Our Halloween themed seasonal ale, Farmers Jack O Lantern.

The Farmers Poppy Ale, with 10 pence from every pint donated to the Royal British Legion.  

Three of our firm favourites, Farmers Blonde, Farmers Vanilla Stout & Farmers Steel Cow.

Lastly, not definitely not least, for the first time ever, our Farmers Blonde Extra (Keg) will be making a guest appearance!

Further information about the festival can be found here.

We hope to see you there!

Farmers Blonde & Farmers Brown Cow Bottles go Gluten Free!

We are pleased to announce that we have mastered the challenge of bringing Gluten Free versions of our much loved ales to the market!

Farmers Blonde Bottles and Farmers Brown Cow bottles have now been confirmed as Gluten Free Ales.

Industry approved testing has concluded that these bottled beers contain less than 10 parts per million of gluten. 

These are now available to purchase from our Brewery Shop as single bottles, 3 piece gift pack or in cases of 12x500ml.

It is worth a note that these beers have not been produced in a 100% Gluten Free environment, therefore if you have any condition that means you can’t  ‘consume’ or ‘be exposed to’ any gluten at all (rather than the standard ‘below 20ppm’), they may not be suitable for you.

Brewery Tap to Undergo Refurbishment

Bradfield Brewery owned Wharncliffe Arms at Wharncliffe Side is set to temporarily close for renovation.

The pub is having a major makeover and due to the intensity of works involved, the pub will be closed for the duration of the renovations.

Plans for alterations to the pub were approved in November 2022 and work is set to start at the end of May. The Pub will be therefore closed from the 22nd May 2023, until further notice.

The plans will see the seating area of the pub extended, a commercial kitchen installed and the relocation of the bar area. Whilst giving the pub the much needed facelift it requires, once complete, the plans are to keep the pub operating as a traditional village pub which offers a warm and friendly welcome to both the local community as well as visitors to the area. Changes will be of a contemporary nature to modernise the venue whilst maintaining it’s traditional pub like setting at the same time.

Progress updates will be provided along the way so don’t go away!

A Brew that’s Fit for a King

To commemorate the King’s Coronation, and all things commonwealth, we’ve adapted the Jubilee Ale recipe to create a Coronation Pale Ale.

Farmers Coronation Pale Ale has been brewed using British Malts and Hops from across the Commonwealth to produce a Pale Ale fit for royalty!

Nelson Sauvin Hops from New Zealand partnered with Archer Hops from the UK offer up their stoned fruit flavours which are complimented with a sharp but juicy finish. 5.2% ABV.
