Two Sheffield breweries are teaming up for the Sheffield Half Pint Marathon 2016.
Thornbridge Brewery and True North Brew Co are collaborating for the second year after the success of 2015’s race.
Thirteen bars are involved and will be stocking their official beer ‘Stitch’ which is described as a light, hoppy ale.
50p from each half pint will be donated towards the brewery’s chosen charities, Sheffield Hospital’s Helipad Appeal and Sheffield Mind.
Anyone who completes the race could be in with the chance of winning a number of prizes including: bottles of Sheffield Dry Gin, True North Brew Co Vouchers, Tickets to the Supper Club at The Broadfield, VIP passes to ‘Oakstock’ at the British Oak, Thornbridge Brewery Tour Vouchers and cases of Thornbridge beers.
Amber Carnegie, Marketing Executive of True North Brew Co said: “We’ve got a lot of groups doing it and trying to do it all in a day although we don’t advise that, we advise drinking responsibly!”
A University of Sheffield report recently declared the Steel City as ‘Real Ale Capital of the World’ and also states that the Sheffield city region is the birthplace of the UK craft beer revolution.
“Sheffield is the place to go if you want to try a lot of different ales. It’s not just recently that it’s come back, it’s always been a big hub” said Amber.
True North Brew Co have four pubs involved in the Sheffield Half Pint Marathon 2016; The Forum, Old House, The York and The Broadfield.
