The newly refurbished Albion finally opened its doors to the public on Friday 28 July. The pub is the brainchild of Stancill Breweries Owners Adam Haigh and Thomas Gill, alongside their business development manager and area manager Katy Streets.
They wanted to create a bar that was all about the beer. Katy said: “Stancill Brewery has a great following in Sheffield and our two brewery taps, The Horse and Jockey on Wadsley Lane and The Norfolk Arms in Grenoside have been steadily growing in popularity over the last year. With our new venture we wanted to showcase our passion for amazing quality beer and offer a wide range of both guest cask and craft keg products alongside our most popular Stancill Brewery products.”
With 14 rotating craft lines and 10 real ale taps, The Albion will offer an excellent selection of local, British and international brews.
Katy added: “We are all incredibly passionate about beer and wanted to make this passion our main focus for this new venue. This is a dream project for me, as a longtime CAMRA supporter and a craft beer lover, I was thrilled to be offered the challenge of planning, designing and running The Albion.”
The team already have plans for the future to extend their large beer garden and install a kitchen. Katy said: “We are so lucky to have a very enthusiastic team who all want to work towards a successful bar and we are all excited to keep moving the venue forward and ensure that our patrons have the best possible experience!”
The Albion is open from 2pm til 12am every day (with longer opening hours at weekend) and will offer 50p off all casks for CAMRA members.
