The Sheffield Half Pint Marathon returns this September…

We've partnered with Abbeydale Brewery to bring the Sheffield Half Pint Marathon back for its fifth year!

The month long charity event will run throughout September in 13 of Sheffield’s favourite bars and pubs, with each brewery creating a brand new beer especially. ‘Strider’ from True North Brew Co and ‘Threshold’ from Abbeydale will be available in all participating venues and with each Half Pint Marathon beer purchased throughout September, a donation will be made to local charity Sheffield Mind.

Sheffield Mind is a Sheffield based charity which provides support to people with mental health issues. Sheffield Mind Business Development Manager Lindsay Doyle-Price said “We are delighted that True North Brew Co and Abbeydale Brewery have chosen to support us again this year and that so many venues in the city will be involved. Having the support of local businesses is important to us and we appreciate the opportunity it affords to raise awareness of the work we do and the support that’s available to people across the city. All the money raised by the promotion will be invested in local service delivery and development, so if you, your mates or colleagues are planning a get together, pop along to one of the participating venues and show your support.”

The premise of the Sheffield Half Pint Marathon is simple – at the starting venue of your choice you will receive your Half Pint Marathon card, then for each venue you visit and purchase one of the specialty beers you will receive a sticker. When your card is filled simply hand it in at Forum Kitchen + Bar and you will receive your Half Pint Marathon t-shirt, with hand drawn illustrations from the incredibly talented Will Rea (follow him on Instagram: @willustration). You can complete the marathon at your own pace, in a day, week or even over the whole month.
