SUNFEST 2013 THE BEERS
About our Beer...
Looking for unusual beers?
You'll find them at The Rising Sun.
Being part of a microbrewery business, we are able to get hold of microbrewery beers which don't appear in the free trade very often, if at all. Some micros only brew for their own outlets and don't sell their beer much at all. But they will often swap beer with another micro to put guest beers into their pub or pubs. So look out for rare and unusual beers alongside old favourites. If you have a favourite beer from a micro you would like to see on the bar, let Robert know and we'll see what we can do.
And if you can't find something to your taste on the handpumps, check out the bottled beers menu!
The Rising Sun is well known for the impressive array of hand pumps which can be found located across the entire length of the not exactly short main bar, 13 in all, with additional space taken up by a further 9 draught taps. It's not uncommon for customers to find themselves a little bewildered by the selection, and indeed 'window shopping ' is encouraged! Each pump boasts a miniature blackboard bearing a description of the ale, usually starting with the colour and aroma before moving on to taste and texture to assist you and if your still unsure our staff will be more than happy to offer a sample of your chosen ale before you commit yourself to a full pint- after all, taste is a matter of personal opinion!
The beers comprise of 5 permanant Abbeydale ales which are always available (Deception, Brimstone, Moonshine, Absolution & Daily Bread), along with a pump dedicated to the seasonal 'guest' Abbeydale (or Doctor Mortons or very occaisional Beer Works) brew PLUS a further 7 pumps rotating guest ales from near & far! We try for a range of colours, flavours & strengths where ever possible to cater for all tastes.

Also a 'crack the safe' snowballing raffle which is not unknown to reach a jackpot of over £300! Well worth a £1 a shot.

We will have over 100 real ales from across the country plus a selection of real ciders and perries available in our beer tent (situated in the car park) plus our Belgium Beer selection and a range of Abbeydale ales on handpumps available in the pub itself.

Rising Sun News
The Rising Sun has continued to maintain a presence in the Good Pub Guide and was once again listed in 2013, why not pick up a copy and take a peek.
We have been Sheffield Pub of the Month winners in June 2010 & October 2007 and hope to continue to add to our collection of these titles this year.
We are now entering our second year of being Cask Marque accredited, as another testiment to our excellent cellar & ale management standards. We also have some staff training events planned for this year to help educate and improve our new staff members understanding of real ale.
We've recently taken on a few staff members after a few of our old faces left for pastures new at the beginning of the year. Some are brand new to the pub trade and some are old hands, but after just a few weeks it's already a challenge to tell them apart.
Music List Updated: 05/11/12
The Rising Sun hold live music weekly on Monday nights, usually starting at 9pm. The listings for November, December & January are now available to view on the Entertainments page, inclusive of Christmas Choirs (more are likely to be added so check back often).
We occasionally hold music on other nights so be sure to keep checking the website & the in pub entertainment board for updates.
