We’re very happy to have our latest seasonal special Bees Knees available from this week and back on the bars! Bees Knees is always a real favourite, golden in colour, and made with local wildflower honey, which at 3.9% is perfect for the glimpse of Spring that we’ve been seeing over the last few days!
As always with our seasonal specials, stocks are limited and they often sell out quickly, so let your landlords know quickly if you’d like to try it in their bars!
New Addition to our Team!
We are very pleased to announce that we have a new key member of our team joining the Springhead family from Monday! A huge welcome to Bob Phaff, who is to be our new Production Manager, and will be working alongside our Head Brewer, Keir, in steering the ship at the Springhead basecamp and keeping things running smoothly!
Bob comes to us with a wealth of experience in other top quality breweries, including most recently working at True North Brewery as their Head Brewer. He also brings with him experience from St. Andrew’s Brewing Company, Welbeck Abbey Brewery, Stancill Brewery, Black Iris Brewery, Black Jack Brewery, Runnaway Brewery and Twisted Barrel Brewery, which we very much look forward to using to develop our own beers and business!

Following our GOLD MEDAL in the SIBA Independent Beer Awards, Midlands Region competition, in the Standard Mild and Brown Ales category this year, we are very excited to have our delicious Drop O’ The Black Stuff taking part in the national finals this week.
The competition is taking place at the SIBA Beer X conference, taking place in Sheffield this week - fingers, toes, and everything else crossed for another award at the national level!
Hop Merchant Tap Takeover Week
One for our Nottingham drinkers - we're very excited to be doing a TAP TAKEOVER week at The Hop Merchant, on Parliament Street, in Nottingham, from Monday 27th of March to the 2nd of April.
This should be an excellent week, and a great opportunity to try a range of our beers, pick up some free prizes, and meet our team on the MEET THE BREWER night on Wednesday 29th of March!
For those of you who haven't been to The Hop Merchant before, it’s a great pub, and a link to their Facebook page is below. We hope to see you there!
Center Parks have produced a lovely feature on Springhead for the Spring issue of their magazine this month, as one of their local suppliers, including an interview with our Managing Director, Helen, and a photoshoot at the brewery. As well as in their magazine, the full article will be up on our website soon (www.springhead.co.uk), and they will also be shooting a short video at our brewery next week! A big thanks to Cathy at Center Parks for organising everything, and for their kind words!
Robin Hood Joins Meg in Tescos!
As well as Roaring Meg, our lovely traditional hoppy chestnut bitter, Robin Hood, is now also available in 500ml bottles in Tesco stores across the midlands. If you spot it on the shelves, please send us in a pic, and let us know what you think to the beer!
National Promotions for Left Lion and Roaring Meg
We’re very happy to announce that our beers will be reaching new drinkers across the country from the end of this month, as Roaring Meg is on a national promotion with Wetherspoon’s for the next two months, meaning any Wetherspoon’s pub is able to order it across the country during this period. So if you live further afield and would love to try Meg, this is a great opportunity – just ask your local Wetherspoon’s landlord! Left Lion is also reaching far and wide over April and May, with a national promotion from Molson Coors meaning it will also be popping up across the country. Let us know where you spot them, and we’ll post on our social media so others drinkers can find them too!
Think that’s everything for now, so from all of the Springhead team, we hope you have a fantastic (and thoroughly beery) weekend!
