    This Sheffield brewery is famous nationwide for Stones Bitter, which was originally brewed at the Cannon Brewery in 1948

    It was brewed there until the brewery's closure in 1999. The company was taken over by Bass in 1968, and is now a functionally dormant subsidiary of Molson Coors. Brewery conditioned Stones Bitter is brewed by Molson Coors at their breweries in Tadcaster, North Yorkshire and Burton upon Trent, and cask conditioned Stones Bitter is contract brewed by Everards of Leicester.

    Stones Bitter was originally available across the south of Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, with distribution extended to the rest of the north of England in 1977, and nationwide from 1979.

    The beer reached its peak in 1992 when it was the country's highest selling bitter, selling 240 million pints annually. The beer has been considered to be "one of Sheffield's most famous exports". Stones notably sponsored the Rugby Football League Championship and its successor the Rugby Super League from 1986 until 1997. Since the withdrawal of the majority of marketing support by Bass in 1997 in favour of the Worthington ale brand, the beer has experienced a heavy decline in sales, which are down to less than 10 per cent of their peak, although it remains among the twenty highest selling ale brands in the United Kingdom.

    Really enjoyed this place, I was planning on doing a few other Sheffield sites on the same day, but this one took up all of my time!
