Who & Where

Who are We?

Saint Mars of the Desert is a true family-run artisanal brewery, established and staffed by long time brewers Dann & Martha Holley Paquette and located in the renowned beer city of Sheffield, England. As a two-person brewery, all we have time to think about is brewing world class beers and sharing them fresh with the public.

The brewhouse is a 10 hectolitre system built by Moeschle UK in Germany. All of our beers pass through Yorkshire’s only coolship, for hopping and settling, and are spunded for a gentle and natural carbonation.

SMOD brews beer for draft in one-way Keykegs and can our beer in 440 ml cans on site with our own packaging line. We also produce bottle re-fermented feoder beers on a more limited schedule. Commercial outlets are encouraged to phone or email us to gain entry to our commercial sales portal.

All are welcome to visit us in our small taproom for brewery tours, draft beer and fresh cans to take home. Obviously due to COVID the taproom is closed to the public at the moment. Stay tuned and when we know the details we’ll start thinking about opening up again.

So please check Google maps and our site for confirmed opening hours, we update them weekly. Usually we’re open on Fridays and Saturdays. To see our upcoming events and opening times, check the taproom page here . If you prefer to purchase beer from our online shop please go here.

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