St Mars of the Desert

A bit about the brewery

All of our beers are brewed by us, Martha & Dann in a 1,000 litre infusion brewhouse manufactured by Moeschle UK.  We have a gas fired kettle and a koelschip that we’re using primarily for “koel-hopping” at the moment and general cooling, though one day soon we hope to begin inoculating fresh wort using it… so stay tuned for that. Our 2,000 litre fermentation vessels are rated to 3 bar and are equipped with Handtmann “spunding” valves which enable us to carbonate our beers using the CO2 produced during primary fermentation – this locks in precious volatile characteristics and achieves a creamy body in the final product. We have recently added a 1,200 litre reconditioned oak foeder to ferment and age beers. 

We package our beer for the trade in 20 and 30 litre key kegs. Please contact us for more info. 

In addition, fresh cans are available for retail sale in our taproom, and we will be adding a canning line in June to produce cans for sale to the trade.

For our current beer line up, please check our social media accounts, or send us an email. Cheers!

We are happy outsiders, a character that is reflected in our name. We’re neither traditional nor historic, nor are we satisfied with the “craft” scene.  We’re not in casks, we’re not into gimmicks or being precious, we’re not in supermarkets and we’re not looking to win awards. 

Those are the things we aren’t. More importantly, what we strive to be is a fun, inclusive brewery making the most amazing beers that couldn’t come from anywhere but this particular weird brewery in Attercliffe.

The Brewery of SMOD will sink or swim based on the local support of Sheffield’s beer drinkers. Breweries with taprooms may still a new concept in the UK craft beer scene, and we hope you’ll enjoy the experience, and the beer we’re creating for you.
