Kelham Island Brewery was founded in 1990 in the beer garden of the Fat Cat in Alma Street, making Kelham Island Brewery the first new independent brewery in Sheffield in almost 100 years.  As demand increased the decision was taken to move to new premises and a purpose built brewery was constructed a short distance from the original brew house back in 1999. Kelham Island is now one of Sheffield’s eleven designated Quarters. Formerly an industrial area, it has now become a big part of Sheffield’s up and coming social scene and we are privileged to be a part of this.
