Taproom Hours

*******Please note that we will be CLOSED SEPTEMBER 17th, 18th & 24th. In addition SMODFEST is SOLD OUT on both the 25th & 26th of September, and we will NOT be open to un-ticketed visitors.*********

The brewery taproom at 90 Stevenson Road is open on Fridays & Saturdays, 2:00-8:00 P.M.. We welcome you to visit our brewery and experience up to nine of our draft beers on site.

It’s worth noting that the Saint Mars of the Desert taproom is not a full-service pub, its a place to experience the beers we make here at the brewery (much in the same way you would find a winery only serving their wines on site). We welcome all, and as passionate beer makers of course we want visitors to enjoy the fruits of our labour above all. We do stock a limited range of soft drinks, cider and wine, plus some great snacks (nothing extravagant, just packets!). You are welcome to order delivered food if you are sitting outside.

Also, recently we have become a cashless establishment, so please plan accordingly. You don’t need to book anymore, just show up. If you’ll be coming with a large group it would be great to get a heads up though: email smodtaproom@gmail.com or phone/text 07365 222101 with any enquiries. See you soon!

Here are a few overly-flattering quotes about our taproom to get you in the mood…

“Walking into their tiny taproom in Sheffield is like stepping through the wardrobe into an adult, beer-themed Narnia.” Anthony Gladman, Beer Writer

“We’ve named the (collaboration) beer ‘Secret World’, which is a reference to the magical taproom space which Martha and Dann have built in Sheffield. A trip to one of Belgium’s characterful beer cafés, such as the Poechenellekelder opposite the Manneken Pis in Brussels, or In De Welkom in Dworp, can feel like stepping into a secret world, with their unfamiliar, intoxicating brews and enchanting, unique atmospheres.  We feel the same can be said of the spiritual home of the Brewery of Saint Mars of the Desert, hiding behind old industrial buildings in Attercliffe. On any given weekend, you’ll likely find at least a couple of Thornbridge’s staff on one of the tables, enjoying a few SMOD beers with friends.” Thornbridge Brewery

“I had visited a few months before though, on a Saturday, and experienced the taproom in full swing. People glugging down saisons, tripels, New England IPAs and 19th-century imperial milds with abandon, shortening the brewery’s name from “Saint Mars” to just “SMOD” with each passing reference. This is a happy place.” Matthew Curtis, Pellicle Magazine
