Long time, no see. New thing here and, ironically, we have nabbed the idea from a local publication that had plagiarised ideas off of us recently. Anyway, that doesn't Matter s, we're all about the Beer....
Our Pub of the Month shall henceforth be an occasional 2BG feature probably focussed on new places or beery outlets, as `n` when, that have not necessarily featured in our much-lauded annual Top 10 Pubs.
The first PotM winner is...... Head of Steam, Sheffield! Despite having only been open for a year or so, this place is already popular and proudly puveys an ever-evolving (and improving) beer range. The staff are welcoming and pretty knowledgeable (for new kids) about their wares and several of them appear happy to stop for a pint with mates after their shift.

The Head of Steam is part of a chain (Cameron`s) and, ironically, I used to sup in the Huddersfield one the best part of two decades ago! Located near to the Lyceum and Crucible theatres, this place comes top of the bill for dramatic drinkies, pre and post performance. You can expect eight plus cask ales plus plenty of keg craftiness, dahlings. Classic bottles are displayed in multiple refrigerators with vegan ales cutely tagged with a green heart in front of an impressive back bar.
The clientele is wonderfully eclectic and it can get busy but, rest assured, there is seating and floor space aplenty. Food seems popular and there are screens that show rugby union and such nonsense but also listing the current bar offerings. Recently I popped in for a swift half and ended up there for ages tucking into an array of excellent Tiny Rebel ales on cask and keg.

In summary, visit soon because the Head of Steam Sheffield is an excellent addition to Steel City drinking and ticks plenty of boxes for us; a worthy winner. x
