That's a wrap, thank you!

It is with mixed emotions to announce that the BBQ Collective’s residency at The Hop Sheffield will come to an end on Friday 23rd December. Our residency was fixed-term and though we knew this day was coming, it crept up on us quickly during a very busy time of year, hence our announcement today.

We want to thank all of our loyal customers who have given us such amazing support throughout this journey.

We are particularly thankful for the collaboration opportunities we had for our monthly BBQ & Brewers Night series with some of the best independent local breweries namely Abbeydale Brewery, Thornbridge Brewery, Lost Industry Brewing, Exit 33 Brewing, and North Union Brewing Co as well as beer specialist Jules Gray of the Hop Hideout.

Thanksgiving Feast 2016

Thanksgiving Feast 2016
Thanksgiving Celebration at The Hop Sheffield
On Thursday 24th November, we hosted our second annual Thanksgiving Feast at The Hop Sheffield and packed the house with American expats alongside their British partners and friends. There were a couple lone groups we teasingly referred to as the "curious Brits" that joined in on the fun to find out what this fuss about "giving thanks" and all things turkey was all about.

Luckily we were fortunate to have Dr Andrew Heath, University of Sheffield Lecturer in American History, accept our invitation to give a brief talk about Thanksgiving.

Brewers Night with Hop Hideout

Jules Grey of Hop Hideout and Pitmaster Jeffrey Wright of BBQ Collective
Tasting session with Jules Gray of Hop Hideout
Once again, we find ourselves searching for the next great beer and BBQ pairing. Not that there is any shortage of amazing breweries within a 20 mile radius of Sheffield city centre, but these things are not as easy as they sound.  In the little spare time we have, we search high and low for the right partner who brings a like-minded spirit to our events.  So it was perhaps fate (or destiny) that Jules of the Hop Hideout was present at our last pairing event with North Union Brewing Company, and we quickly took a shine to one another.  We knew we wanted to do an event with Jules but couldn’t believe our luck that it would happen on this very instalment of our Brewers Night series.
