The Kelham Island Brewery is a small independent brewery based in Sheffield, England.

Fat Cat public house

In 1990 the brewery was opened (the first for 100 years to open in Sheffield) on purpose-built premises on Alma Street by the owner of the Fat Cat public house, Dave Wickett.[1] As well as the Fat Cat, the brewery owns a British-styled pub in Rochester, New York (United States), named the Old Toad.[1]

Its beer Pale Rider won the "Champion Beer of Britain" award at the 2004 Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) organised Great British Beer Festival.[2]

The brewery is situated next to the Kelham Island Industrial Museum.
