Heist Brew Co is moving from Clowne, in Derbyshire, to a former machine works on Neepsend Lane, close to the Cutlery Works food hall and the Gardeners Rest pub.

Interactive tours, tastings and events are planned in two large bar areas, which will be available for private and corporate bookings.

Original features of the building – including two cranes – will be kept to reflect Neepsend’s industrial heritage.

Thirty craft beer lines will offer 10 varieties of ale from Heist, alongside other drinks from the rest of the UK and Europe. Regular guest lines from the US are envisaged, too.

Space will be set aside for gaming and comfortable seating, while a yet-to-be-announced vendor will serve burger stacks and loaded fries. Regular guest street food suppliers are lined up as well as other ‘unique food experiences'.

“Adding to this vibrant area, Heist will join a number of breweries in the area such as Sheffield Brewery, Neepsend Brewery and Kelham Island Brewery, which will be sure to gain the attention of avid beer drinkers, creating a popular spot for those seeking a day out in the Steel City, as well as those looking for a unique shopping experience," said Heist director Adam France.

The company will be partnering with other businesses in the coming months to organise a food and beer pairing at Boozehound in Cutlery Works, a 'summer skate jam' and barbecue at The House Skatepark and a beer cocktail evening at The Millowners Arms, Kelham Island Museum's on-site pub.

Heist Brew Co aims to open in Neepsend in summer when a weekend-long celebration will take place.

Neepsend, next to Kelham Island, is changing fast.

Heist's relocation means it will join the likes of Yellow Arch Studios, the Depot Bakery and Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes’ bar Church. Cutlery Works, meanwhile, is one of the biggest food halls in the North, and a new live venue, practice rooms and private members’ club is planned on Harvest Lane by arts group The Lughole Collective.
