BeerHeadZ Nottingham Station took its first award last night – ironically Nottingham CAMRA’s Cider Pub of the Year! Manager Greg Downing was presented with the certificate by Nottingham CAMRA’s Apple rep Ray Blockley, who praised the pub for stocking less widely available brands therefore supporting the small independent cider makers. A good choice of ciders and perries was available, including Janet’s Jungle Juice and Hartland’s Farmhouse Perry. Greg thanked just about everybody on earth and then got on with the important business of quality control. A great night and another certificate for the BeerHeadZ wall!
BeerHeadZ Grantham has taken Grantham CAMRA Town Pub of the Year for the second year in a row. Grantham CAMRA chairman Nev Lomas handed over the certificate last night to the team and it soon became apparent that there was a hilarious mistake – The award was made out to BearHeadz!

A red-faced Nev promised to get the certificate reprinted and no offence was taken! Thanks to all the team at Grantham; Briony, Neal, Mark, Simon and Sam (who sadly couldn’t make it) for their hard work in making BearHeadz Grantham such a success. Richly deserved.

BeerHeadZ Grantham collected its first award last night when it was awarded the accolade of Grantham CAMRA’s Town Pub of the Year. It joins BeerHeadZ Retford in being recognised as a leading venue for quality and exciting beers.

Sadly Briony and Sam were absent but their contributions to BeerHeadZ’ success was not forgotten. Of course, without the customers none of this would have been possible, so we thank you for your support and salute you all! Cheers!

The presentation will be this coming Saturday 7th Jan, from 2 o’clock onward. We look forward to you joining Josh and the rest of the team to raise a jar or two.
