You have to take a test before getting one. If you're a clapper, you get half a glass full. If you're a slasher, your glass comes half empty.
Aye and if you're a doomsayer You buy it, McCabe sups it, pisses up the wall i& flogs your glass (for a pittance)

Amidst the many fine craft breweries in Sheffield and Yorkshire more broadly, we appear to have gone for a Derbyshire based brewery.

Sacrilege.
Clowne though. It’s not that far from Sheffield. And parts of Sheffield used to be in Derbyshire (hence Derbyshire Lane), a lot of the area south east of Meersbrook I think.

South Derbyshire can fuck off though

If only there was an irreverent Sheffield United Beer Blogger who wasn't still in Portugal after the UEFA Nations League, and about to travel to Italy for the UEFA U21 EUROs, who could taste this beer & give his/her considered opinion. I miss those days......
Phil just looking at the advert you know it's going to be shite but if you're desperate I'll nip down and get you a can in case they sell out ;)

Aluminium can so no Magnet will stick to it ;)

Probably 330 ml because it is trendy (profitable).

Er, yes and no.

You do know that London Road was never part of Dick Whittington's manor, don't you?

They make beers in collaboration with some Sheffield brewers though, like Sentinel (as was). Looks like a pretty good set up tbh. Wonder if Matty Lawton has owt to do with it? He’s from there.

 

I should coco

Sunny Sheff
I know a large chunk in Sheffield was previously part of Derbys thank you and I acknowledged that. The old Anglo Saxon boundary between Nortumbria and Mercia (to be conquered by Wessex), was the River Sheaf. Everything south of the Sheaf (pretty much running alongside present day Abbeydale Road until Heeley), was in Mercia/Wessex, whereas what we know as Yorkshire, was all in Nortumbria.

Not a very good article but better than nowt:

It makes the point that the first bit of the boundary was the River Limb which flows from Ringiglow, through Whirlow and Dore, down into the Sheaf.

Killamarsh is on the border, thankfully classed as Sheffield S/Y, but with Derbyshire council.
It's abit of a corner pin, as Halfway is Sheffield S/Y too, the top of killamarsh is edged with Rotherham S/Y and Derbyshire.
